Stil in restoration

I saw this 3rd greatest arena 50 years ago. They were still in restoration process. Today they still are. The Romans were building a little bit faster in there time.

A beautiful historic place right in the center of verona. Some areas were closed but they still charged a full fee. Not a must but gives a nice overview on the history....

The coliseum was fun to see BUT (both to their credit and also not to the traveler's advantage) Verona uses the facility so much of the coliseum was roped off and the arena itself was covered with a stage. For those who haven't seen a coliseum, it is worthwhile and the views from the top overlooking piazza bra worthwhile. But... More

We were really sad that nothing was being shown in April and we were very disappointed that it was not lit up at all at nighttime. It is very pretty though and adds to the ambience of the town.

The Arena is in the centre of a huge piazza with restaurants and shops surrounding it. We found a men's shirt & tie shop there and spent a small fortune with the loverly sales assistant.

It's a huge and overwhelming piece of art, living proof (?) of one of the biggest empires in the world. Definitely worth a long visit. Just stay there, in Piazza Bra, and think of the Romans. And forget for a few minutes about the horrible modern buildings the mankind builds nowadays.

When we went to the 1st century Roman arena in Verona it was being set up for an art exhibition. It is also used as a venue for opera and can hold 30,000 people. It is great that this wonderful ancient building has found a new use in Verona.
