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.

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

Excellent and well structured visit! Highly recommended!

It was a pleasure to visit the Arena (without a second waiting at the entrance!) Thanks to the detailed explanations and the enthusiasm of our guide, Priscilla. Despite having booked the tour in English (it wasn't available in Italian), the tour was easy to understand. At the end of the visit, Priscilla stopped to answer each question with great kindness. We highly recommend this experience!

Isabella was very nice she kept things short but interesting with additional material of the ancient Verona, for all history enthusiasts like me. It would have been nice to hear more about the past, but that's a personal note and not something that should influence the great tour through the arena of Verona.
