Nice pretty arena however some refurbishment works going on. You are not able to visit everywhere. It is located in the center.

We bought the Veron card, which gives you access to see the arena. It was getting ready for a concert, so in the middle, they were arranging rhe stage and chairs and wires and so on, so it kind of kills the whole history, fight...More

Not my first visit, and still i am amazed. I paid 15 € for 2 person to enter the Arena. Setting inside is so romantic too.

Entry fee is ridiculously expensive to see the ruins of the amphitheatre, mostly renovated, and besides there was work in progress to prepare for a show that will take place. Tourist trap.

Roman arena built in the 1st century. Cost is 10 euros and allow 30 minutes to 1 hour. This arena pre-dates the colloseum in Rome and is located adjacent to Piazza Bra. Concerts and festivals are held during the summer months. Recommended.

The arena itself is a beautiful structure and the history of this 2000 year old building makes you shiver as well as admire the skills of the Romans back then. If you get a chance to see an opera in the arena, don't miss it!...More

The amphitheatre is a very impressive building from the outside. The only real reason for paying the 10 euro entry fee is to get the views of Verona from the top of the arena which are superb. Access to the rest of the building at...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
