Smaller but better preserved than the Colosseum, the Verona Arena is a must-see. Visiting in mid-September meant missing the opera season, unfortunately, but the arena in Verona is a breathtaking sight itself. The arena sports intact seats, so you can walk all the way to the top of it if your legs are up for a workout. It's still used... More

You can't go to Verona and not visit the Arena. Fantastic to see it standing after all these years. This was our first stop when we arrived in Verona. Tip to those who are thinking of going, we purchased the Verona card which allowed free or reduced access into all musuems/sights and also included travel on public transport. Well worth... More

The Arena di Verona is a must see. It is right in City Centre. The ticket price is 6 euro per person .... well worth it. Inside the Arena, you can climb up to the top if you wish, or you can go to the very center floor of the arena. Photo opportunities are great. Concerts are still held here... More

We had read much about seeing the opera in Verona, so it was on our 'must do' list during our 3 day stay in this unique and very special city. The opera that night was not especially well known to us, but Aida was performed magnificently, a true spectacle of musical, operatic theatre: the music was superb, but the sets... More

Make sure while you're in Verona you get to see the opera. One of the most incredible venues I've been to in my life & make sure you bring a sitting pillow!

Nothing like an open air Performance of an opera in such a spectacular historical Setting. A must even for non-opera-fans!

The Arena is surrounded by a large cobbled area frequented by people on foot, on bicycles, sitting in restaurants, resting under the trees at the little fountain. Historically it housed all kinds of ancient world entertainment - one can imagine people and captive animals lurking in the dark underground innards... waiting for a heavy metal grid to swing open...

My son is very into Roman history and he absolutely loved it. It was also fun for the rest of our family. It is well kept and easy to maneuver around.
