It's incredible that many of them are in such great shape and still used today.

The one in Cagliari looks more like Greek stadium (like the one in Athens) than Roman amphitheatre, because of the horseshoe shape and being cut into a slope of the mountain, though.

Something that these angles show easily is how claustrophobic some of these cities' medieval cores are, barely any park or open space
