2. Verona: the Arena at the Gladiators' time

Meet your certified local guide in the shade of the town hall that delimit the southern front of the square where the most important monument of the city, the Arena, stands. Follow him to reach the northern part of the square, where, in the shadow of the Bra Gardens, you can carefully observe the shape of the amphitheatre and already discover very interesting details such as the original size, its relationship with the town and the complex articulation of its access facilities. Then you will move towards the "wing", in whose shade you will be able to spot other unexpected details. You will then enter the amphitheatre and walk along its corridors and archways to explore the ingenious structure capable of connecting the external gates with the internal "vomitoria". You will discover the places frequented by gladiators and those used to house wild beasts. Will you perhaps forget to enter the "arena" as a gladiator would have done? And take a seat on the stonesteps as the spectators still do? After listening to the countless anecdotes related to the world of gladiator games, you will end your tour in the most hidden and evocative part of the whole amphitheatre. And there, your free time will begin, so that you can stay in this extraordinary place for as long as you wish.
