Arena di Verona, Verona

4.2
#1 of 529 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.

  • When in Verona, you have to visit and think about the history of this place. When we were there no Opera performances because of Covid. Would love to visit again and see a performance.  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.
  • Arena completes the romance of Verona. Wish I could experience a concert there. It must be a very unique experience in this gorgeous city that breathes romance from every corner making the city feel very compact and truly welcoming. I guess keeping the romanticized Italian charm, we all love. ❤❤❤
  • It is one of the most beautiful monuments in Italy, in my opinion. It looks beautiful when you are walking and you see its magnificence in the center of the square. The best way to appreciate it is to take part in an event in its inside: the Arena was built to observe games, so you should visit it during a concert, for example, to appreciate it. You should identify with a spectator of the Roman empire to appreciate the beauty of this place!
  • The most well preserved glatiator arena in Italy. It's interesting to have such a place of violence in the city of lovers, but I guess it makes sense. It's a lovely place, great for pictures in the heart of Verona. The square around it is also very pretty. It's definitely smaller than the Coliseum, but still worth the visit for it's outstanding preserved state. Some shows and events are still held in there and the acoustic is great!
