Take the time (and money) to go in. The exterior looks nice. Walking inside the walls is interesting. Sitting in the stadium gives you a good understanding of what it would be to watch a show there (the interior was setup for a coming show when we were there).

What a way to watch spectacular operas! In a genuine Roman Arena …. under the stars… large casts - full orchestra - excellent acoustics! We sit in he more expensive seats behind the Emperor's balcony so that we look straight at the stage - the extra cost is well worth it!….. when we went to Carmina Burana we sat on... More

I found the Arena in Verona to be less crowded and touristy as compared to the Colosseum in Rome; which for me was the highlight as I prefer places minus the people to truly enjoy. It's a must visit if you are planning to come to Verona (a beautiful city in the Northern Part of Italy). The Arena is still... More

After visiting THE Colosseum in Rome, much of which is missing or destroyed, here is an arena of similar construction that is intact. It's beautiful. We weren't able to go inside, just to walk around. But, it's very impressive because of its condition. Very good photo opportunities.

It is a stunning place! Well keeped and with an organized staff. You can take pictures with the "gladiators" in front of it. It was a surprise and I recommend you to go around late June, when is the Opera Season.

Well kept arena with fantastic views from the very top row of the arena of the surrounding town, unfortunately we couldn't see the floor of the arena as they where fitting it out with flooring and stage for opera season, but having seen Rome's Colosseum you could imagine what it would have looked like, very atmospheric if you take your...

The building is kept in great chape. it's big and mesmerizing! My wife and decided to watch an opera there as well. The opera was so boring that we left half way through. We did not understand a word so for us it was a wast of time. The whole area around is beautiful as well. Worth a trip but... More

Very nice view from the top of the arena and it provides an opportunity to see the rest of the city and people watch. The cost to enter the arena is likely necessary to maintain its architecture and upkeep. A neat spot.

The best part of the arena is looking at it from the outside, unless of course you are going to a concert. A line to get in, 10 Euros entry fee for adults and a huge letdown when you get in and find out that it is nothing more than a once historical but now empty outdoor concert hall

What a rip off! 10 euros per person to go and view a whole lot of plastic chairs and other paraphernalia being constructed for their programme of summer concerts and operas (though no doubt a great place to go for a concert); so from the inside you would need to have a very vivid imagination to get an impression of...
