“Pre Opera People Watching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

If you have a chance to enjoy a once in a lifetime experience (that we did twice) of seeing an opera in the Arena in Verona, make certain to allow enough time to walk around Piazza Bra, people watching and interacting with other opera goers. The ancient arena in one direction, city wall the other, lots of cafes for prosecco before and gelatorias after. Street performers and special displays honoring the opera. A Verona Must See!

“THE CROWDS”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

This is the busy crowded area of Verona, not my favorite part but there are some sight to see here. The restaurants are also over priced here.

“Great place to chillax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

This busy spot has many restaurants, all with decent fare and cold or hot drinks. The park has nice seating and there are scenic views every direction including the Arena di Verona and the Old City Hall. I visit every year and look forward to a couple hours of doing nothing important in Piazza Bra!

“Relax and have a beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

A great place to sit outside and snack or have a beer and street watch, a pleasant atmosphere next to the Arena with plenty of eating paces

“Very Busy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

Piazza Bra is in a great location with the Arena in the centre and with the roads leading off to the stores.

The Piazza does get very busy and if looking for somewhere to eat and enjoy a relaxing drink, I'd recommend moving onto one of the Piazzas in Verona.
