Live opera

The best in the world live opera Aida, real experience. Better to visit in the front. Be careful with rainy days because they can cancel the show.

This is one of the largest most well preserved of the Roman amphitheater so in existence. If you are not planning on seeing an opera or performance there, a visit is a must! It is somewhat expensive, 10 euros, but worth it. We visited on a Sunday afternoon and an orchestra and choir were practicing for a performance, so we... More

Nothing to see! no explanations or anything inside to be impressed. Would have skipped especially for the 10 EU ticket price

Previous reviewers who suggest not to go in are correct. Walk around the outside, but don't waste time/money going in to see plastic seats and not much else. You can't even walk in the passage ways under the seating - it's blocked off.

We were looking forward to going round this rather lovely arena. However, the entrance price is as steep as the seating in the arena. There is no signage at all and at one point it looked like we would be stuck in there. It is not good value for money so we left after fifteen minutes. It really is not... More

Must see on your list. This is in the center of town. 30,000 people used to come here to see performances in the 11th Century. Very cool history in this place. Look for a performance to attend during the summer.

If I was going to an open-air concert here my review might be different. But it was day-time, and our group paid the 10 euros just to see the Arena. Impressive building, but not a lot to see inside, and little or no historical information while there. The top of the walls are crumbling and inaccessible because of protective fencing... More

You can feel yourself back in time. The steps are huge. Dislike the way you really have to climb the steps but the arena was wonderful

Visited the Arena Di Verona whilst wandering around the city, what a wonderful place, well worth a visit. Old, charming, full of culture, well worth time if you have a little spare when in this charming city

Don't waste your money (Euro 10 for general admission) or your time. There is no denying that for an opera or a concert the venue is ideal, especially on a warm summer night. DON'T, however spend the 10 Euros to go in during the day to tour around as there is virtually nothing to see. Just a round wall with... More
