    This is and incredible 2 thousand year old arena in the heart of Verona, a true gem of Italy. Make sure you get the seat cushions before the show starts. Trust me, that you will not regret it.

    Beautiful arena and indeed a gem of Verona. The opera is top quality although the seats are hard not only in the more expensive seats but especially in the unreserved area. Oh and an umbrella!!

    Opera festival is so good, quality and exiting!! Professional orchestra and other musicians and so kind, cool atmosphere. Everyone should visit this kind of performance, you'll be full of emotions.

    A good idea to bring a pillow (waterproof is good) if you're seated in an unreserved section, and a raincoat and umbrella - no matter where you're seated - if rain is a possibility.

    Make sure you are in the line for tickets , 15 mins before ! What an amazing experience , opera out in the open. Don't forget to bring a jacket and be comfortably formal .

    If you're here for the festival lirico and you bought your ticket online, print the ticket before (even if ticketless). Or just go to the main ticket shop before the show

    Buy yourself a comfy seat pillow at the stands in front of the arena, especially if you have a ticket for the stone steps :-)

    Entry is overpriced if you're not coming for a performance. At €10, it's much more than most palazzi. Better to take in a performance in the cheap seats

    REMEMBER:Something to hand on and plenty of fluids, it's just varmt.🌞 and the sun has warmed up the stone you pages.You can buy sundries. Liquids but they are a little expensive.

    Don't pay 10 EUR to visit it during the day, but spend 30 EUR to see an opera at night! More value for money

    Saw Aïda here at an Opera festival. Impressive experience. Tickets easily available on site. Go either for the expensive or the cheapest tickets. Outdoors. They need to paus if it starts to rain.

    Building improvement going on but that can't be helped. Still a very charming and very Italian historical site. Lovely atmosphere

    Although opera, ballet and symphonies take place year-round in Verona, in the summer, operas move to the city's most atmospheric venue: the ancient Roman arena.

    The amphitheatre was built from three concentric circles. After the heartquake in 1100 A.c. only one side of the external ring remains. It is commonly referred to as the “Wing”.

    It's definitely worth paying a bit extra for allocated seating near the front.

    Interesting place to see but not worth the €10 entry fee! Would be a great place to see a gig or an opera though.

    Very cool, but smaller than Colosseum. I would see Colosseum instead if only time for one.
  • Mehmet A.
    There is nothing to see inside. It is better to throw your money to trash. Inside is converted into concert place with iron construction and plastic seats. There is nothing historical inside.
