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.

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.

Priscilla was engaging and knowledgeable - 30 mins very well spent

Had 4 kids of various ages in tow and a 30 min tour in 38 degrees seemed like just about the right timings and it was. Helped along by our fab guide Priscilla - she had a lovely personality and engaged with the group really well - so glad I booked it.

Visita eccellente e e ben strutturata! Consigliatissima!

E' stato un piacere visitare l'Arena (senza un secondo di attesa all'ingresso!) grazie alle spiegazioni dettagliate e all'entusiasmo della nostra guida, Priscilla. Pur avendo prenotato il tour in inglese (non era disponibile in italiano), il tour è stato di facile comprensione. Al termine della visita, Priscilla si è trattenuta per rispondere ad ogni domanda con grande gentilezza. Consigliamo vivamente questa esperienza!
