This amazing place is up there with the Coliseum and the Amphitheatre at Pompeii. Well kept, still used for performances (wish we’d been able to see one), and so authentic you can almost hear the clash of metal, the slap and grunt of bodies, and...More

Beautiful view. Historical monument, gigantic dimensions. Amazing view from the top. Acoustics are awesome. I recommend to everyone. You musn’t miss if you are in Verona.

Touted as the second largest Roman arena in Italy (and maybe the world for all I know), it stretches your mind to realize it is still used for contemporary events. Beyond that it's like trying to review the Eiffel Tower. What can you say that...More

If you are lucky enough to be in Verona during the summer opera season, dont miss the opportunity to go, whether you are an opera buff or not. From just E25 for a seat (albeit on the stone steps, but you can buy a cushion...More

it is useless to comment on the Arena di Verona that even for Italians it is a sight difficult to describe. A building that after 2000 years is still used is something incredible

An amazing Roman arena, still used for opera and other events. This alone is worth coming to Verona to see (but stay to see the other wonders). The views from the upper level are great and the whole atmosphere of the arena is moving. There...More

I wish I could have watched an opera, but it wasn't the correct season. Still enjoyed walking around and taking photos of the town from the top of the arena. You only need about 30 minutes to visit this attraction

As you walk Verona and you arrive at the plaza with the Arena it is breathtaking. I suggest you avoid the many restaurants around it. Higher prices lower quality than the rest of the city.

When you’re in Verona make sure to pass by the Arena. We decided not to enter due to the cost of the ticket. The view from around however is also quite special. We decided to have an aperitif in one of the nearby restaurants and...More

There's no denying it is impressive and worth a visit if you're in the region. It's well preserved and deserves a visit inside to sit high on the terraces to admire the view within and of the city outside. That said, unless you do the...More

It depends where your seats are. If you are in the stalls, especially towards the front, the dress code is more formal - business for gents and cocktail dress for ladies. The higher you are in the tiers, the more casual the... More

The queues for the tickets are usually long. No drinks are allowed through security but you can get it from the bar inside.

If you are not too budget constrained, I would recommend Sixt Chauffeured Services. They have a smartphone app and you can book in advance. My wife and I used them to go from Verona to the airport. Cost was 55 euros for a... More
