I loved the fact that this is a building that's been there for 2000+ years and is still in use today as a venue for opera! Those Romans knew how to build to last! :-)

Although the major structure was ruined after an earthquake, the remains of the inner circle are still impressive. Remarkable to see that already 2 millenea ago the build arena with the same basic set up as today's stadiums. We were lucky to visit the arena when the choirs were rehearsing the Nabuccu Slave chorus. Impressive acoustic quality of the arena.

Kids loved comparing the Arena to Wembley Stadium! Would love to go back and have a tour to better explain what happened there.

It's a must. The arena is smaller than Roma but is in good shape. The stage was in preparation of a concert with a skating ring. There's a lot of information on Verona and the arena. Take the time to appreciate the view.

This 30,000 seat arena hosts an opera season during the summer which must be spectacular. This 1st century Roman amphitheater is mostly complete and you are free to roam the whole arena. A great place to sit and contemplate - something which you desperately need when spending a day fighting the crowds in this beautiful city,

The arena is substantial and quite intact. Worth visiting by day and would be even better to attend an opera during the summer.

I've been to the coliseum but this is so much better in terms of its preservation. You can really stand and imagine what it was like in it's prime. Great place and next thing is to attend a concert here!

Easy to get into (no queues) very atmospheric, very beautiful and smack in the middle of the bustling Piazza Bra. And the in-built intelligence test? Well, once you are in the Arena (as a tourist - ie not during a concert) there are entrances / exits on the lower level plus the higher level, but the higher level exits are... More

Not so much going on inside... the external appearance of the arena is truly breathtaking, its outer shell is very well preserved and promises so much. Once you get inside, while it still mightily impressive there really isn't much to see

I saw this 3rd greatest arena 50 years ago. They were still in restoration process. Today they still are. The Romans were building a little bit faster in there time.
