Does anyone know whether it is possible to take food and drink into the arena?

Well it doesn't specifically say you can't

arena.it/en-US/information/spectators.html…

However you are not permitted to eat or drink during the performance anyway which implies you can't take anything with you - and if you did (were eating) you may be deemed as behaving in an inappropriate manner and politely asked to leave.

"The Management is entitled to ask persons behaving in an inappropriate manner to leave the Arena, without any right to refund."

Maybe it depends where you are sitting?

I've been twice, both times to the "Cheap" seats (remember to buy a cushion to sit on!) and on both occassions we saw many locals with"Picnic Hampers" and there were, like any major event, people going round the arena selling food and drink during the performance.

This was5 or 6 years ago, I cannot imagine it would have changed.

Members of our family were there for a performance last August (sitting on the stone steps) and took in with them a small cool bag with liquid and food items stored within plastic containers which they ate during the various intervals. From personal experience do not try to take anything into the arena stored within glass - it will be confiscated during the check-in procedure. Food and drink peddled within the arena is sold at a premium.

Thanks very much - really helpful information.

We have booked some seats - the cheapest "proper seats" i.e. we are not on the stone steps, so may not be able to picnic like the locals. Think we will try to take some stuff in with us: water in plastic bottles, maybe some fruit and bread and hopefully we will be able to eat and drink that at the interval.

Thanks again for your help
