I went to a Bob Dylan concert in the Arena. If you ever go to Verona, seeing an opera or a concert is a must do. I also went to Adige years ago. Do not miss Verona if you go Italy.

Very well maintained building, lots of interesting fact boards dotted about to explain the history. Amazing view of the surrounding area from the top, worth the €10 entry just for that.

Came here and was amazed by the sight that awaited me. The whole history behind the arena is fascinating and to see it is unbelievable. Not to mention the views from the top. This place is well worth a visit.

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
