The opera is a must when visiting Verona and even if you cannot speak the language there are two large screens to each side that will tell you what is being sung so that you can follow the story as it unfolds. Absolutely amazing experience!...More

A bit over priced in our view but would be an excellent venue to listen to a concert. Well cared for and under restoration. Probably worth the visit. Too bad they don't make it easy for guest to take photos of the city from the...More

We had a visit to Verona from Malcesine. We did a guided tour and saw many Roman ruins. The arena is beautiful. We saw the house of Juliette, although it was very busy and too crowded to get near. There are many other beautiful buildings...More

Just check before you visit to ensure it is not closed in preparation for an event which in our case it was. One of the only full circle amphitheatres in the world this should be a world heritage site. It just evokes what happens in...More

Even though you have to pay to enter (€10), the arena really is something special and well worth it. We spent 2 hours in there just soaking up the atmosphere. The building survived two earthquakes! Amazing!

I've been to Verona a couple of times. Arena di Verona is a Must if you have any interest in Roman history. It's not near as crowded or as large as the Colosseum in Rome, it's very well-preserved indeed and still in use as a...More

This is one of the best preserved sights of antiquity, perhaps because it continues to be used as it was in ancient times. Like the arena in Nimes, this continues to be a focal point of the community --an attraction that draws outsiders to visit...More

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
