Built in the first century CE, Arena di Verona--one of the best-preserved Roman amphitheaters--has served as an opera venue since 1913. Thanks to the amphitheater's incredible acoustics, electronic microphones were not used here they were finally installed as a sound reinforcement system in 2011. The arena has hosted Alicia Keys, The Who, and Pearl Jam, as well as some of the world's most noteworthy conductors and opera singers. Sitting in the stands, you'll be transported back to Roman times when more than 30,000 people filled the seats to watch shows and games.

Arena di Verona Reviews
Really a nice monument but you need to check if it’s open due to Covid. Several exhibits are closed to the public. more »
Seeing Romeo and Juliet ballet at Verona Arena was the most incredible experience. A truly wonderful magical evening. It was beautifully organised, all very well done. Our seats were great, up high..... more »
This is one of the most beautiful places of Verona. I was feeling like in a piece of the Colosseum! In concert days, it can get quite full, and there are always people around. It's worth also entering there, take a walk around and live a little piece of story behind the beautiful city of Verona. It also have a good atmosphere, so I really recommend going there.
This arena was built in the first century and is spectacular! I loved the way that I could walk around it. It was equally beautiful at night as day.
