Arena di Verona, Verona

3.8
#1 of 516 in Nightlife in Veneto
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.

  • The Verona Arena, what can I say, take your breath away when you walk in, you feel like you stepped back in time!

  • The Coliseum is located in the heart of Verona, over a large area. The area has many restaurants, cafes, ice cream. From Piazza diverge shopping strips. The Coliseum itself better to visit hours to 9, not yet arrived tourists brought in buses from other cities.
