“Smaller than THE arena but well worth a visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

A great deal smaller than its larger relation, the arena, but very interesting and well worth a visit. We took a steady stroll from Via Roma and this took half an hour. There is a somewhat shoddy stage in front of the tiered seating which rather detracts from the overall picture so it is best to try and put it out of your mind and ignore it. Having viewed the amphitheatre the next step is to go up to the museum. You can walk up to it or walk part of the way and then take the lift. There are very interesting and well preserved exhibits within the museum and there are some fantastic views of Verona from the top.

“Small but beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

The Teatro Romano isn't the largest attraction in Verona, but the museum is nicely done. Climb all over the site and get a feel for life during the Roman Empire's domination.

“Forum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

The Arena was being prepared for an opera concert the day we were there. The plastic seating on top of 1,000 year old marble steps took away the ambience. It would be impressive without this modern intrusion.

“Belissimo Roman Ruins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Great views of Verona from the terraces; great artifacts from the roman era. One of the best places to visit in the city.

“Impressive, but quick!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

The theater is impressive and the views from the museum above are outstanding (it is just a few meters below castel San Pietro, so same views). It doesn't take a lot of time to go through the theater and museum so squeeze it in if you have time.
