Full description
Save precious time and skip the long lines to enter the grand amphitheater of the Verona Arena, one of the most popular attractions in the city and one of the best-preserved monuments from the Roman Empire. Look beyond the iconic pink marble façade of the monument on Piazza Bra and hear stories about the gladiators of the Roman Republic. Learn about the famous operas that have been performed at the arena over many years. Built in the 1st century AD from pink-tinged marble, the great theater survived an earthquake in the 12th century and is still the city's favorite concert venue for operas.

We booked this guided tour and we had the good fortune and pleasure of having Francesco as a guide, a real Veronese boy who, in addition to knowledge, puts a lot of passion into the story, looking for analogies with the client's city: in this case we came from Florence and with analogies with Verona there are enough.

Difficult meeting point and locating the guide. Lots of people around. Apart from that, a nice visit, the great guide. The bad thing is that it was not the best time to visit the Arena, since it is very commercial due to the concerts and its original structure cannot be appreciated much.

My husband and I were not disappointed and would recommend the arena to anyone! We were met by Benedetta who was our guide and she was extremely knowledgable, told us all about the history of the arena and answered questions from the group. It was a fantastic place to visit! Rachel and Matt
