Good food for a piazza. Very convenient place to eat if you are going to the opera. We couldn't get tickets for the Sting concert so we sat at a bar right outside the colosseum entrance and listened to the whole thing.

Can't understand why some reviewers don't seem to like it, yes it's a bit tourist-y but hey, that's what we're here for isn't it? My girlfriend and I loved sitting back and watching the world go by, the trattoria nearest the area offers a great pizza and a very nice house wine at seven euros a half litre, we felt at home as soon as we sat down, a mention has to be made to the 'Romans' outside the arena, they are a great laugh and really earn whatever people chose to give them, even in 32 degrees heat! sit back, order a wine and savour la dolce vita!

You can almost feel the atmosphere.Dominated by the Amphitheatre this is a glorious place to just walk around, especially when the Opera is on at night.Cafes on one side,major buildings hidden behind trees and fountain on another and there the Amphitheatre....third largest Roman structure in Italy...be impressed.Its wonderful.

Piazza Bra is a huge piazza, surrounded by some very old and famous buildings in Verona, the most famous being the Arena, where Gladiators used to fight, and nowadays concerts are performed. You can climb to the top of the stairs/seats and admire the stage, as well as the city, from a bird's view. Actors with garments from old times stand in the piazza,, and one can take pictures with them in funny poses.Wondering in the piazza is a very pleasant and interesting experience.

This is a great spot to orientate yourself to Verona. Grab something to eat and drink and sit on the benches or grass and spend some time here. It is busy but is lively and friendly and you have the backdrop of the Opera, the ancient Roman amphitheatre. There are drinking fountains to wash your hands and refill your water bottles.
