If you have seen the Colosseum / Coliseum in Rome, Arena di Verona may not be that appealing at first sight. But the great thing about Arena di Verona (other than the fact that it was built in the first century) is, it is still...More

This arena is in very good shape and can give the one in Rome a good run for its money. There are not thousands of tourists here and you can really enjoy he views.

We spent a lovely hour at Arena which is very like the coliseum in Rome but without the crowds. It's in very good condition and great views from walk around the top level.

It is absolutely beautiful. The color is unique because it is a mix of different shades and I think that it is more beautifull than the Roman Colosseo. Try to go inside in the opera season, (May to August) because watching Opera inside this Arena...More

This coliseum is not as well known as the one in Rome but is extremely well preserved. There is a small fee to enter the coliseum which is built seemingly using the same plans as the one in Rome and the one in Arles, France.

This is a beautiful Roman amphitheater, sometimes used to hold concerts and special events. Located about a 10 minute walk from train station and before entering the city center, this Colosseo is probably the second largest in Italy after Rome. Well worth a visit.

How can you visit a place that was built in 30 AD, much less seeing it practically as it was - and not be thoroughly impressed. Maybe not the grandeur of Rome, but nonetheless special in our eyes.

Great ancient roman achetecture! This is still actually in use today! It is simply amazing as to what was built so long ago!

Dependent on the seasonal weather and the length of the performance, you would benefit from a cushion if booking a place on the stone seats, but probably not for the plastic seats. Enjoy the show!

That's a really good question. We saw Nabucco because it is on of the shortest Operas being played and it lasted till midnight. The Arena is located in a ZTL so there is no traffic, though there is a spot that taxis can... More

You can if you're sitting on the stone steps. Put everything in plastic containers - no glass allowed. Its a good idea to bring nibbles like crisps or a picnic - sandwiches etc. There are vendors selling wine, beer and water... More
