Yes impressive, UNESCO site

There are 414 marble, granite and porphyry columns in the mosque. Almost all were taken from the ruins of Carthage.

It's highly recommend to hear the opera in the Verona arena. Despite a ruin, the acoustics are great and the show is luxurious!

Indeed, the mosque is huge and the best thing is, that the courtyard is open for everybody,which is rather rare. There're just endless row of columns, which is really impressive. Of course, there're lot of example of reused Roman columns in palace, church, house and mosque, you just need a good eye to spot a Roman column in a different environment.

Senate Roof by Bushtick, on Flickr

A panel of carvings in the Curia Julia. These are the Plutei Traiani, a set of carved stone balustrades built by Trajan. They are on display inside the Curia Julia on the Forum Romanum today, but are not part of the original structure.

Roman doors from the Curia Julia, which were moved in 1660 to become the main door of St. John Lateran Basilica in Rome.

The only remaing basilica of the four built during the republican era following Rome's victory over Carthage. It dates to 179BC and was restored many times over the centuries until its destruction by the Vandals in the Sack of Rome of AD410.

The Temple of Hercules Victor (Hercules the Winner) (Italian: Tempio di Ercole Vincitore) or Hercules Olivarius is an ancient edifice located in the Forum Boarium close to the Tiber in Rome. It is a monopteros, a round temple of Greek 'peripteral' design completely encircled by a colonnade. This layout caused it to be mistaken for a temple of Vesta.

Dating from the later 2nd century BC, and perhaps erected by L. Mummius Achaicus, conqueror of the Achaeans and destroyer of Corinth, the temple is 14.8 m in diameter and consists of a circular cella within a concentric ring of twenty Corinthian columns. The temple is the earliest surviving marble building in Rome.
