I was just amazed that this arena was built in 1 A.D. Can you imagine all that it has seen?! It is in the central part of the town and well worth the time and money to go in. Hint: if you stand in the middle of the arena, you can be heard throughout the entire arena.

We visited on a sunny Sunday in February around 12.30. We queued for about 10mins to get in, but once through it didn't feel very busy at all. Really impressive arena, we climbed up the steps to the top and got some great photos before settling down and enjoying some relaxation time and people watching! Amazing to sit and think... More

The Roman arena is quite amazing. It is in excellent condition. Interestingly that it was built before the colloseum in Rome. Although a bit expensive to go inside (Euro 10) it is worth it. We visited in winter and would love to come back in summer when there are operas performed.

Ancient Roman anphitheatre. Kids can run around in a massive playground and adults can book for theatre and opera. Tip: there are cabs in the square opposite the arena

We spent maybe 30-45 minutes here walking around the arena. Good views over Verona from the top and it wasn't overly busy so had a nice relaxed atmosphere! Something you must do is visit here when in Verona

The outside of the Arena is majestic, to say the least, the history and beauty of it is evident, but the inside is just as amazing. I saw the opera Aida during the summer and it was superb!

This arena is simply stunning. Right in the center of Verona. If you're lucky or plan ahead, you can get seats to the opera in the arena. Otherwise, just enjoy the majesty of the Roman age! One of my very favorite monuments

We stayed in Verona for 1 day/ night as part of a 3 week trip, and to be fair we didn't have a clue what was here, so you can imagine our surprise turning up and finding this. The structure is really impressive, we went inside the Arena, we didn't need longer than 1 hour, but really enjoyed wondering around... More
