Great arena I didn't know but it was built before the arena in Rome. Pity we were there when they were preparing for an opera so lots of construction and cranes , oh well .. only have entertainment in summer. Great views of city and interesting to walk underneath ... and imagine the history ...

Most of the arena was out of bounds, covered in scaffolding or having a set erected for a show. There was not much information provided. The toilets were disgusting. Disappointing.

This well preserved Roman amphitheater was built in 30 AD and is located on Piazza Bra in the center of Verona. It was built just beyond the city walls and held gladiator & lion fights in front of 30.000 spectators at the time. The arena had to be restored after the major earthquake in 1117 but is still considered the... More

Worth walking around! Can get very busy so best time to wonder around is early morning 👍 red bus tour has a stop nearby. This is also close to Juliet's balcony - Food around the arena does seem a bit more expensive but I guess you expect that around a touristy site.

In great condition, modern seating inside. Opera and in summer, pop shows more frequently. Piazza Bra outside is great fun.

The ampitheatre is fully working and is still used as a venue for plays, poetess etc It is easy to view from the street outside; it's not really worth going inside.

If you are a history buff and looking to tour this arena, you may be disappointed. Unlike other Roman arenas/coliseums, this one is still actively being used for concerts. It is not built for tourism and when I came, they were not offering admission since they were setting up for a concert. If you also come during a concert time,... More

Have been there for Aida performance, which was outstanding to see it there Weather was convenient, so it was absolutelly superb. In case you're not going to book luxury places, standard placed are not very comfortable for couple of hours seating.

Hit the arena up during a Saturday. 10 euro fee for entrance for as long as youd would like. Not much as far as instructional or history markers. The arena was being set up for a concert so half of it was blocked off. Still the views are fantastic and sitting in the high stands is very worth the time... More

Nice and huge arena indeed, but I haven't seen it inside because it was too expensive and I had to wait long time to enter the arena cause too many people were waiting
