Verona Arena was built circa 30AD. The amphitheatre could host more than 30,000 spectators; it is one of the best preserved structures of its kind. This print is one half of a complete double page print of the amphitheatre. The other half has been numbered PAH6113. There are two instances of the Herschels travelling to Italy in the 19th century one of which in all probability resulted in the acquisition of this print. The first is in the 1820s when John Herschel (Snr) made a number of trips across the continent with friends, mainly from Cambridge, to meet important scientists and carry out experiments. The other was much later, in the 1870s when a number of John's daughters travelled to Italy as part of their education in art.
