Opera at the Arena of Verona

Italy’s most famous amphitheatre for opera

Located in Piazza Brà and the third biggest amphitheatre in Italy, the Arena is Verona’s most famous monument. It attracts huge audiences and thanks to its ellipitical form, the acoustics are perfect in every seat. It is easy to imagine the amphitheatre in the days of ancient Rome absolutely packed with spectators. The same happens today as visitors come every summer for the opera season at the Arena of Verona.

Verona is a city on a human scale and the setting of Shakespeare’s masterpiece, Romeo and Juliet. Strolling through the palaces, churches and squares resemblesa journey through history. The city’s architecture encompasses the story of Roman settlements, the city states, the government of the Scaligeri dynasty right up to the rule of the Venetians and the Hapsburgs.

The tour

Every afternoon, from June to September, we offer a visit to Verona, accompanied a tour guide, to see the city and attend a performance of the opera at the Arena.

A Gran Turismo coach leaves Lake Garda and arrives at Verona at around 6pm.

When you arrive, you can either go into the Arena right away or visit the area surrounding the amphitheatre which is in the heart of Verona. The performance of the opera starts at around 9pm. At the end of the show, you travel back to your hotel by coach.
