We have been to this venue 3 times to see the Italian singer Zucchero in concert ... It is an amazing venue with so much history ... The acoustics are fantastic.

This was a nice, very uncrowded, glimpse into what the area must have been like back in the day. They've restored it beautifully and the views from the top are pretty neat. It is just an arena though so It is just a circular set...More

Given the scrum down trying to get to an unreserved seat ( for the Intimissi on Ice Show) one would have thought Italy might have a better rugger team. But they are better skiers, need to be to negotiate the narrow aisles. Be warned, the...More

We attended Bochelli in the Arena di Verona and it was amazing and spectacular to watch a modern show in an ancient place.

Dependent on the seasonal weather and the length of the performance, you would benefit from a cushion if booking a place on the stone seats, but probably not for the plastic seats. Enjoy the show!

That's a really good question. We saw Nabucco because it is on of the shortest Operas being played and it lasted till midnight. The Arena is located in a ZTL so there is no traffic, though there is a spot that taxis can... More

You can if you're sitting on the stone steps. Put everything in plastic containers - no glass allowed. Its a good idea to bring nibbles like crisps or a picnic - sandwiches etc. There are vendors selling wine, beer and water... More
