Remains of the Roman Amphitheatre in Catania, Sicily, September 2021
In the centre of Catania, in Piazza Stesicoro, lurk the remains of the Roman amphitheatre that was built in the Roman Imperial period, probably in the 2nd century AD.
Not much is visible now but there is an entrance with iconic columns topped with an architrave inscribed with AMPHITHEATRVM INSIGNE (“Eminent Amphitheatre”).

I do love this sort of thing and when it’s just in a neighborhood, sort of casually, it makes me smile.
Always find it very strange how entrances remain!
How bizarre does that look? But beautiful in it’s way!
