If you have been to the Colosseo in Roma, this will not be very impressive. After paying a 10 euro admission I was expecting a lot more! The arena is a lot more beautiful from the outside, and its free to see from the outside :) Regardless if you go in or not, this Arena is a must see...

We saw the opera Aida here. It was an entire different experience than seeing it in an enclosed opera house. The theater is not that big so if sitting all the way in the back you can still get a good view, since the stage is enormous. We enjoyed the opera while soaking in the imagination of what happened within... More

Best seen from the outside. It is interesting from the inside. However, there is no explanation, no guides, nothing, and for the price (10 euros), there should be. All we saw was a team of workers building the stage and seating areas for an upcoming event. If you want to see this, and plan to visit other churches and museums... More

It is definitely worth visiting Verona just to see the Arena di Verona. We sat on the boulevard whilst the sun was shining infront of the ampetheatre for lunch, it is a beaufiful ampetheatre but it is expensive to enter (10 euros p.p.).

When we checked into our hotel in Verona, we were asked if we were going to see the opera, no was our answer as it wasn't something we'd thought about and neither of us had seen an opera. When we saw the arena di Verona, we thought why not! So we bought the cheapest tickets and our padded seat (a... More

The Arena di Verona is definitely worth visiting if in Verona - I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent looking around here. Well preserved and beautiful historical place still used in the summer months for Operas and concerts. I'd like to revisit and attend a concert during the summer to feel the ambiance. The views from the top over Verona are... More

The Arena is very well preserved. It would have been great if more signage was used to explain everything. I would really like to be in the arena for a concert, opera, or play. The views are good from the top level.

A beautiful historical place that is still used for concerts in these days. Although it is a place filled with history it did not seem so impressive to me and i found the entrance fee a little to high given that there isn't much to see on the inside.
