The roman arena originally seated 30,000 but now has a capacity of 15,000. It is used for concerts and operas and can be visited inside during the day. It is remarkably well preserved and is approximately 1,900 years old

Amazing building of 2000 years! Really transports you to ancient times. Nostalgic and makes the connection with modern times as you can see them rising modern stages for frequent shows that are presented there.

A magnificent view in the centre of the main square. I wished we had had time to go inside or even experience a show. Quite extraordinary. Try to get on a guided tour to learn about it! Fascinating!

Very impressive from the outside, not so much on the inside as it has been modernised for concerts. Would not have paid to go in if I had known. If sightseeing buy the 48 hour Verona card. We saved over 20 euros.

Got last minute cheap tickets to See an opera. Very Atmospheric and definitely would recommend. Just a magical place. If you do go to a show with the unreserved seats just remember to take cushions though as you're sitting on stone steps!

I went to see Aida in the summer Opera Festival, THE most amazing experience even if you're not an opera fan - really! The sunset in such a beautiful arena and the live music, people in silence just appreciating, it's an magical atmosphere.

Worth the visit. €10 entry. You can nearly imagine what it was like thousands of years ago. A bit of history in the city center.

Hi Tytana I sat on the stone steps last time I was at the intimissimi on ice show but the view was still good and got to see Bocelli live . I’m guessing the seats are elevated at the floor level . Enjoy ur stay in verona !
