Lovely ancient Arena in Verona’s Piazza Bra. Well worth a look, and nice to sit down opposite with a coffee or Aperol Spritz

Lovely arena Great place to visit when in Verona Also take a stroll to Juliette's house and if possible, try and watch a show at the arena. I attended the Bocelli show and it was amazing.

Went to an Opera in August and I was blown away with the sound system. There was NONE. The acoustics were so amazing that even when the singer turned his back to the audience the sound was like he was sitting next to you.
