We had bought our tickets on beforehand online to be sure to get in. Section D, the upper art of the Arena. Good sight, good sound and a great performance of La Traviata in a wonderful setting! Fantastico!

This is something which we came to Verona for. We saw Carmen the opera here and were blown away by the Arena and of course the opera. We are not opera fans but it was fantastic. If you are not doing the opera then still visit as the history is very interesting.

Excellent experience wonderful opera. We bought the cheap 20 euro tickets and say on the steps. The view is perfect and the atmosphere just as good. My two teenage girls were mesmerised. We have visited many times and it never disappoints.

Awesome piece of history. Only wish there had been something on at the time we were there. Best advice I could give is check web site to try and arrange your visit to coincide with a show.

What an amazing experience to sit in such an ancient arena to see a wonderful opera performed. I was told this arena pre dates the one in Rome. You cannot help but be touched by it's history

Excellent venue both historical and memorable. We were sitting at the top on the marble steps as the arena gets very hot, cushions are available for hire 4€. Day time heat radiates from the marble at night - take a fan. Thank you David for the excellent concert

When in Verona try to go and see an opera at the arena. Impressing spectacle and great atmosphere. Bring your own cushion with you, if you are seating on the stone steps and come in time.

Great opera, posh seats 3rd row from the front.... Second year in a row, will be back next year! Posh seats have cushions built in so fairly comfortable. Drinks although expensive can be bought during intervals and at the start. I didn't see any food or snacks available.

We saw the opera Aida at the Arena in Verona. The setting could not have been more special. We had a full moon in the background of this fantastic 2 century old theatre. During the day to see the Arena is definitely worth the visit But, if you get the chance to see a evening performance especially for their opera... More
