Arena di Verona, Verona

4.1
#1 of 4,033 in Nightlife in Italy
Ruin Concert / Show
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. Put Arena di Verona and other Verona attractions into our Verona itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • In the 90ties we often travelled to Verona. Whenever we had a chance to grab a ticket, we went there. Upon a good bicycle tour we hit that place. Had a night in that charming village of Verona. It is a crowded place. Hard to find low price accommodations. But it was worth to go. We enjoyed the music. Such good music venue. World class. Even if you sit on the stairs. Nice environment. Good scenic views. Worse to go!
  • The Verona Arena is a Roman amphitheatre in Piazza Bra in Verona, Italy built in the first century. It is still in use today and is internationally famous for the large-scale opera performances given there. It is one of the best preserved ancient structures of its kind. In ancient times, nearly 30,000 people was the housing capacity of the Arena. Nowadays, for security reasons, the maximum attendance is 15,000 people.
  • The Arena is just Amazing! During the summer you can go to the opera and feel the atmosphere from 2000 years ago. Giuseppe Verdi is fascinating with his Aida, Nabucco or Traviata. Great interpretation and choreography!
  • Very quiet day in Verona. Even though there were alot of tourists walking about the piazza was so large that we didn't feel confined. Absolutely lovely romantic and wonderful
  • A nice historic place. Its fun to walk around and explore history and city center together. Arena organize many concerts and stage shows.

Where to stay in Verona

The historical center of Verona is packed with famous luxury hotels, which offer all the modern conveniences but also tend to be very expensive and require booking months in advance. If you're a spontaneous traveler visiting on a budget and staying in the central area is not one of your musts, consider checking into a small B&B or family-operated farm just outside the city. Verona's picturesque countryside offers less expensive but comfortable lodgings with good food and friendly hosts, all within a short drive from the bustling city center.
