Arena di Verona

The Arena – Verona’s most famous monument, visited by tourists world-wide. If you contemplate it in silence, it’s not difficult to imagine it crammed with spectators as in Roman times: all you need do is shut your eyes or go to see one of the splendid opera performances held here and the Arena will come magically to life.

In its “platea” and “cavea” the amphitheatre could contain 30.000 people. The amphitheatre consists of three concentric rings: only a brief section of the external ring remains – the so-called “Ala”.

Situated in Piazza Bra', the Amphitheatre was built in the first half of the 1st century A.D., in the period which marked the end of Augustus’ reign and the beginning of that of Claudius. It is the third largest amphitheatre in Italy, after the Colosseum and the amphitheatre of Capua.

As far as the quality and the preservation of its Roman antiquities are concerned, Verona is second only to Rome.

Verona is famous for the house and balcony said to belong to Juliet in the Shakespeare story, Romeo and Juliet. Romantics flock to Verona to visit Juliet's house, rub the right breast of Juliet's statue for luck, and take a picture of the balcony. Attending an opera in the 2000 year old open-air Roman Arena is also romantic. Enjoy a romantic carriage ride, stroll along the river, or relax in an outdoor cafe on the square.
