We saw Carmen at The Opera Festival. We'd been to Verona the previous Autumn and were sorry to have missed the season which runs through July and August. I am a fan of opera, but John is not so we chose Carmen as being the most accessible. We were not disappointed, it was a fantastic show which really suited the... More

We visited as a young family of 5. Queuing ok. Don't buy the €10 guide, it's just a history book of the place. The Arena was set up for opera nights in August but although its impressive and in much better condition than the Colosseum in Rome, there's not much to explain or demonstrate what happened in Roman times.

Absolutely fantastic. Such a shame they are trying to close the Arena. Take your own drinks in plastic containers and plastic glasses and sit back and enjoy the opera. Love to come back again. Got to try the opera if you have never been.

Loved seeing the opera. Ot was my first opportunity and it was well worth it. You don't need a close seat and tickets are affordable for the stadium seating.

Magnificent location for opera, atmosphere, music, stage and cast size amazing, a very enjoyable evening even if not an opera buff like us. 4 parts and intervals does make it a long evening though, shame seats do not swivel like at Albert Hall, but amazing evening.

Unforgettable first opera-lyrical experience for the family (14 and 10 year old). My daughter's words once inside... 'I'm in love with this place'". We purchased the least expensive 'seats', the gradinat (about 22€ plus fees) Next time I'll bring cushions to sit on (they rent them for 3€ each, monies going to charity) being under the sun all day the...

A side trip to Verona complete with a most memorable visit to the Arena to take in Aida. This is a highlight from the production to the cast and the setting made for a fabulous evening. Purchased the tickets online, including the parking pass in the Arena Garage the garage is an approximate 10 minutes walk to the Arena. Our... More

Truly remarkable!!! What an evening. Last day of the annual opera festival. Experiencing this in a Roman arena, with 2000 years history is unique. Well worth spending the extra EURs for numbered seats, but even the unassigned get a good view (you need to be in early). Renting/buying a pillow is useful, even for numbered seating. Amazing evening!!!

Spectacular setting under the stars - we are not big opera fans but the experience overall was very memorable and sitting in a 100 AD arena is hard to believe. only problem is very uncomfortable seating - even with the cushion rental
