This was our second visit to the Arena. Aida from Guiseppe Verdi. Every year from June to August Verdi's operas are presented in this unique place. Built around 30 AD to host "Panem et circenses" (bread and games) like gladiator fights - more history on...More

Whole experience a dream. The only issue was in queuing to enter - at least 20 minutes to reach the gate, only to watch numerous others pushing in at the front. No staff to oversee.

Amazing experience at the opera although a few tips for those going in future, starts at 9am and some performances can go on until 1:30, it gets very hot so a fan of some water spray like the couple next to me had is a...More

The arena was impressive, and amazing to see from the outside. However, as it is still being used as a music and opera venue, the inside was full of plastic seating and a stage and crane were set up, retracting slightly from the historic feel...More

Opera out of doors in Italy has been on my bucket list for some time. While Nabucco is one of the least known Verdi operas it was quite fun to experience a new opera in a new venue. Plus, there is no doubt where the...More

Too long, extreme temperatures and people close by constantly filming and taking photos, ruined the evening. 4 hours was just far too long but aside from this it is a spectacular arena.

10 euro's per person to see 1/4 of the amphitheatre, as the rest shut to public because of setting up the stage for an opera.

Completely coincidentally we discovered 23 June was opening night at the Arena di Verona (Nabucco), AND there were tickets left in the top most section. We jumped on them, and the evening proved to be a highlight of our trip, even if we did about...More

We have been to Verona on a number of occasions and are always inspired by this wonderful piece of Roman workmanship. We have been inside and it is a huge amphitheatre used for classical and modern productions.

Hi, I am honeymooning in Lake Garda from 20-23 September. While I would've loved to go to the opera at Arena di Verona, I understand that I may have missed the season. However, my research indicates that concerts are held in September. Can anyone tell me when the program for September will be released on the Arena Di Verona website? Thanks!
