These ruins give you an indication of Roman culture

Went there for a live concert and really enjoyed the style and architecture of this Roman theatre. Even sound was very good, considering the age of this place.

The museum and large parts of the ruins are closed for renovations, the ruins in the parts that are accessible are mostly built over to accommodate for modern plays. There's no historic information or context provided at all, no guide, no clear tour to follow, not even an info panel.

This is definitely worth a visit, like most places in Italy expect tourists but the ruins are incredible. It is a beautiful piece of history so take the time to walk there, relax and take it all in! Please note you do not need a tour; it's a good free attraction if you've brought a Verona Card!

The theatre offers a great view of the city. Entry costs only 1 euro which is well worth it to see the view and glimpse at how a roman theatre might have looked. Unfortunately we didn't get to see a performance, but I thought it was great to see it being used to put on productions. Fantastic way of ensuring... More

The attached archeological museum is closed for renovations (fair enough), but the Roman theatre has been built over to allow modern performances. Free entry with the Verona card and still not worth it.

If you are like me, and you don't necessarily research the places you visit on vacation - except maybe on TripAdvisor :) - then you might expect an Italian historical site in Verona known as "Theatro Romano" to be the excavated and preserved ruins of an ancient Roman amphitheater, right? And you wouldn't be completely wrong, BUT you would perhaps... More

How rare are Roman theatres? If you've got one, why would you hide most of it under modern seating and scaffolding? It's a crime against history! Having said that, you still get a good impression of how the Roman theatre was built into the hillside; and it's well worth a look.

When we visited, Teatro Romano was closed to the public (renovations). We walked the stairs beside it and were able to look in a little. If you continue to follow the stairs up past the Teatro Romano, you will come to a park overlooking Verona - wonderful views. Other paths in the park bring you to the walls built by... More

We were surprised to find a stage here. Some parts of this are still in use. It is nice to wander around and see how the theatre was built into the hillside. It is a very pretty location.

There were plenty of cultural activities and events here during the summer 2015. It is a nice place to visit with children as well as teenagers while visitning Verona
