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.
It should have been an arena in ancient Rome, and it has now become a performance venue. The arena is in the very center of Verona’s old town, and almost no tourists will miss it. Sitting at the top of the stands, looking at this arena, it feels very majestic.
Compared to the arena, the scale here is smaller. But there are more ancient and authentic buildings preserved here, even more than Rome. On the first Sunday of every month, tickets here are only 1 Euro. And it’s not as crowded as an arena, and there is no queue, which is very interesting. Worth coming!
The Verona Arena is also one of the better-preserved ancient Roman arenas. Compared with the Colosseum, although the floor is not that high, it is more interesting in terms of appearance.
Verona Arena is one of the better preserved ancient Roman arenas. Compared with the three floors of the Colosseum, although there are only two floors, it feels more complete in appearance. There is also an opera house and a square on the side, you can visit together
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!
Excellent experience! A wonderful hotel , perfectly locatated, with everything one needs for a day or for a night.
Impressive arena of the roman period, absolutely worth paying a visit! Go up the arena to have a nice view of the city ;)
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.
