What a beautiful place to visit... We did not get the pleasure of seeing an opera, but this place is truly steeped in history. Have to pay to get in ( expensive ) walk through narrow corrodiors, large steps, tremendous views...

You could go into the Arena for just a Euro when events are not happening. Offers great view of Verona. You can get a better and higher view by taking the road behind as well.

Visit to the arena for opera, wonderful experience. Although there was a storm on our second opera evening and the performance did not start until ten pm, it truly was an amazing experience. Was it worth it, definitely. Would I visit again, absolutely come sun or rain.

Lovely to look at from the outside and admire from Piazza Bra, but such a let down inside!! You pay and walk in and climb the stairs and look at an empty stadium. There's no view at the top because it's all fenced off. Unless you're going to the opera, don't pay to go inside.

We took a day trip from Lake Garda to stay in Verona overnight to see Aida at the arena. I am so glad we did. This was the highlight of our trip. My husband and daughters age 9 and 11 are not opera fans and was thrilled when they absolutely loved this as did I. The ambience was fantastic and... More

The arena is in a wide square in Verona so you can view it from a distance before going closer to see the intricacy of the remains of this ancient arena. You can go into it to see the walls dividing the various sections. However, for me, if you've been into one arena/amphitheatre they're all much the same. I found... More

Saw Aida, had booked third to best seats - expensive but worth it - great view and an actual seat! But you still need a cushion - slightly rainy when we went so a quiet plastic pacamac useful as is a pair of small binoculars for spotting the soloists etc.

It is the third-largest Roman amphitheatre in the world (after Roman Colosseum in Rome and El Djem in Tunisia) but it is by far the most preserved of these largest Roman arenas. There is place for around 30 thousand spectators. Make sure you go there on Sunday as it is discount there for a ticket (like 1 € instead of... More

Attended first night of the festival. The opera, Nabucco, by Verdi. Open air venue, warm, perfect dusk into night, a packed arena, atmosphere full of anticipation. A wonderful opera, the chorus of the Hebrew slaves, so familiar, yet hearing it for the first time, live, in this wonderful setting was spectacular. Highlight of my holiday. If you love opera, or...
