What people are saying:

This kind of circular arena is also called "Gladiator Arena." It was a place used by slave owners in Roman times to seek excitement and watch slaves and beasts kill each other to gain joy. So the elegant appearance is actually full of blood and violence inside. Later, it became an open-air theater for the appreciation of large-scale operas. More than two thousand years have passed, and it is still used in large-scale opera performances or music concerts. Each performance can be watched by 15,000 people. It is conceivable how magnificent it is, a classic that is both beautiful and practical. There are neat rows of round arches, layered inside and outside. This is a typical feature of ancient Roman architecture. Just looking at the thick bricks, even if the cracks are already visible, people still have to admire the ancient Romans as a nation with great architectural art and creativity.

    Italian history at its finest!

    AMAZING arena!! It's nearly 100% intact, not ruins. Inexpensive and worth the visit. You can climb the interior to get views from the top. Spectacular!

    A Great Place In Verona

    This arena was one of the best things to see in Verona. From what I was told, most of it is still original has been preserved. More so than the Colosseum in Rome. The Colosseum is still more impres...

    I didn’t have time to explore the Arena, however it’s beautiful even if you just wanna take pictures from the outside. Must-see.
