Tips for visiting the Verona Arena

Built in the first century AD to watch the fights of gladiators, the mighty Verona Arena serves quite a different purpose today. Unlike in 30 AD, it's now famous internationally for hosting large-scale opera performances.

Be sure to catch an opera at the Verona Arena if you can – it's one of the best preserved ancient structures of its kind and makes for a very atmospheric experience. It's also used for various concerts and events.

If opera's not your thing, you can still enjoy a fascinating express tour of Verona Arena with a convenient fast-track ticket. With a guide at your side, discover the history and legends of this incredibly preserved amphitheater, learn about the stories of the gladiators and the Roman games, and enjoy a behind-the-scenes peek.

You can also book ahead for a guided walking tour of Verona Arena, which will save you money and time lining up in the crowds. The affordable VeronaCard will also get you skip-the-line access to Verona Arena.

Verona's high season is during the hot summer months of July and August. This is when the Verona Arena opera season draws huge crowds. It's a nice experience to get involved along with the masses.

The Verona Opera Festival is confirmed from June 17th to September 4th, 2022. Get your tickets ahead of time to save disappointment!

It is not possible to bring food or drinks into the Verona Arena. Registered guide dogs only are allowed.

Before reaching the entrance gates of the Amphitheatre, you may have to undergo security checks by the ushers. This might be via a walkthrough metal detector or a handheld metal detector. Video cameras, trolley cases, bags, backpacks, or other bulky containers are not permitted.

If you're watching the opera from the Verona Arena stalls, please remember to dress suitably for the theater. Tank tops/vests, shorts or thong sandals will not be admitted to stalls' seats; in this case, tickets will not be reimbursed.

You'll be thoroughly impressed as you approach Italy's largest church, the Duomo di Milano, also known as Milan Cathedral. At 108-meters high, 160-meters long, and 92-meters wide, it easily holds 40,000 people. Every inch of it is dripping with gothic gravitas. The true magnitude of the Duomo di Milano truly hits you when you're inside. It is adorned with artwork and religious ornaments, and you can see sarcophagi of luminaries from centuries gone by. It is also home to Italy's largest organ, which clocks in at a whopping 15,350 pipes.

An enormous monument enriched with history, art, religion, and culture – to say the least! St Mark’s Basilica is made of impeccable treasures, inside out, from the 'Pala d'Oro' behind the altar, adorned in precious stones to the four horses on the façade that symbolize strength and freedom.

For lovers of art and history, there is no more special place to visit than Florence's Uffizi Gallery. Open to the public since 1765, this former magistrate's office on the banks of the Arno welcomes some two million tourists a year. The Uffizi's collection is laid out in chronological order from the 13th up to the 17th century, so visitors get to experience the evolution of Italian art, from the introduction of realism and perspective of Cimabue and Giotto up to to the High Renaissance of Da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael, and finally to the Baroque chiaroscuro of Caravaggio. A visit to the Uffizi is a unique chance to commune with the protagonists of the Italian Renaissance. When planning a trip here, always remember that the Uffizi Gallery is closed on Mondays.

The Doge's Palace (Palazzo Ducale in Italian) is one of La Serenissima's most iconic landmarks. The first Doge's Palace was built on this spot in the 9th century but was destroyed by fire. The Gothic palace that stands in St. Mark's Square today dates back to the 14th century. It has undergone many refurbishments and upgrades over the years. Since the 16th century, it's been linked to the New Prison by the (in)famous Bridge of Sighs.

Visitors to Florence's Accademia Gallery invariably come for one reason – to see Michelangelo's magnificent statue of David. David has been on display here since 1873 along with the artist's Slaves and St. Matthew. On a trip to the Accademia – originally founded in the 1780s – you'll also be able to take in an important collection of Renaissance paintings by the likes of Botticelli and Ghirlandaio, see the remarkable original plaster cast of Giambologna's Rape of the Sabine Women, and the charming Museum of Musical Instruments.
