Very impressive with the dimensions and acoustics. Concert and operas recommended there!!! Love the classical music and the way the Italians appreciate the music.

Amazing structure right in the centre of Verona. We were lucky enough to be here during Opera season and most nights you could sit in the local cafes and listen to the Opera very easily

What a beautiful city. It really has a romantic feel to it with all it wonderful architecture and the views of the river and bridges. We made our way here from Venice on the train and spent the entire day exploring the city on foot. We did take a taxi from the central station and were dropped of down town... More

As you walk around the old city you see this beautiful Arena from afar as it clearly dominates the Verona. No concerts while we were there, however the Italian Christmas display within the tunnel of the Arean was awesome. Many of the Italian cities took part in providing their traditional version of a beautiful nativity scene and together with the... More

One of the great things about the Arena di Verona, and of the old quarter of Verona itself, is how accessible they are. Accepting that our visit took place in October, there were still a lot of tourists around and we chose to drive from nearby Lake Garda and found no difficulty whatsoever in finding good parking. We parked in... More

You cannot - and should not - miss the Arena di Verona. It dominates a large space right at the centre of the city with a form and design that are highly reminiscent of the Coliseum in Rome. Although we were there in winter and there were no concerts on, we were happy to pay the entrance fee to go... More

I have always wanted to visit a Roman amphitheater and was not disappointed when it happened late last year. This example of Roman architecture and engineering was stunning. The arena holds four thousand people but the entrance and exit designs means leaving, in particular, was extraordinarily swift. The place at night, with mood lighting showing off the largest remaining tier,... More

I truly magnificent and historically beautiful site. You can enjoy a event in the coliseum as was done when it was built in the 1st century. It was a safe environment with plenty of local Police and Carabinieri. You have to plan your events with the weather in mind

extremely well preserved with amazing acoustics. This would be a sensational place to see a summer opera and we are determined to Coe back her in music season. The winter is still great and they allow you to walk down right into the arena . It is easy to imagine what an amazing musical experience this would be

Smaller but better preserved than the Colosseum, the Verona Arena is a must-see. Visiting in mid-September meant missing the opera season, unfortunately, but the arena in Verona is a breathtaking sight itself. The arena sports intact seats, so you can walk all the way to the top of it if your legs are up for a workout. It's still used... More
