Fantastic!

Fantastic experience to watch an opera in the historic Arena. The smooth stone seats attest to all the people who have enjoyed whatever entertainment since Roman times!

This is fantastic, just like the Colleseum in Rome only smaller. The great thing is, this is still in use for very selective artists, opera and concerts. A great visit enhanced by attending a Santana Concert that night, only found out it was on during our visit.

Buy a Verona Card and this is well worth a visit. Not as busy as most tourist attractions in Italy, but definitely worth a visit. In the centre of Piazza Bra you must visit.

Do not bother, overpriced arrogant staff stuck in dark ages. Quality of singers lacking. Poor lighting and stage effects

An amazing monument to visit & take in the surroundings. Unbelievable to think built in first century & still survives. We went to the opera in the evening.

All verona is charming especially the Arena and piazza Bra. We watched Romeo and Juliette opera in the Arena. It was superb. You really feel humble in front of the greatness and history of the arena

Opera under the stars at the Arena is an experience even non-opera lovers should have. The acoustics of this ancient amphitheatre are of course superb - the Romans knew a thing or two about acoustics, learnt from the Greeks. And the performances themselves on such a large stage have a dramatic quality unlike any other venue. Prices suit all pockets,... More

This was our first ever visit to an opera and what a venue and setting, just magnificent! We chose mid priced seats at €131.00 each and they were really uncomfortable, you felt like you were sliding off them into the person in from, good job there were 3 x 15 minute breaks in between acts to stretch our legs.

We made a side trip to Verona, strictly for the opera and were very glad we did. The setting can't be rivaled. After much research we opted for numbered seats: the biggest advantage being the available seat backs, which you do not get in the 'open' seating. We were told (by the venue) to dress formally, but that's really not... More
