  • Verona Arena Skip-the-Line Guided Tour

    1. Verona Arena Skip-the-Line Guided Tour

    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. Built in the 1st century AD from pink-tinged marble, the great theater survived an earthquake in the 12th century and is still the city's favorite concert venue for operas. Listen to little known stories that reveal facts normally concealed in the mighty stonework.

    We were very happy to skip the long line at The Arena. Our Tour guide was very friendly and informative. The tour is not really long but you are definitely getting your moneys worth. Think we would have been a little lost in the arena without her.
