Teatro Romano, the Ancient Roman Theater

Lee in Volterra, Italy

I walked down to where the car was parked to pay for more time. This is a photo that Karen took from on top of the city walls overlooking the ancient Roman Theater (see photo below.) You can see me getting something out of the back of our Fiat Panda.
The blue lines on the parking area indicate that you have to pay for parking. White lines indicate free parking, but they were all full. To the left, you can see the machine where I deposited the money for parking. It gave me a ticket that I put on the dashboard.
