The Verona arena is like the coliseum in Rome accept smaller and significantly less busy. I found it to be fascinating to learn about the history of the arena and how the Governor would select gladiators to fight gladiators of their political opponents. It was...More

Very well maintained building, lots of interesting fact boards dotted about to explain the history. Amazing view of the surrounding area from the top, worth the €10 entry just for that.

Came here and was amazed by the sight that awaited me. The whole history behind the arena is fascinating and to see it is unbelievable. Not to mention the views from the top. This place is well worth a visit.

Strolling along the beautiful streets of Verona and the coming across this Roman monument is a wonderful thing. Performances are held here throughout the year, I had to settle for a look inside instead.

This amazing place is up there with the Coliseum and the Amphitheatre at Pompeii. Well kept, still used for performances (wish we’d been able to see one), and so authentic you can almost hear the clash of metal, the slap and grunt of bodies, and...More

The queues for the tickets are usually long. No drinks are allowed through security but you can get it from the bar inside.
