The Arena in Verona is the world’s largest open-air opera theatre. Operas of the leading Italian composers Giuseppe Verdi, Giacomo Puccini and Gioachino Rossini are favourite in the Arena of Verona. Enjoy the extraordinary atmosphere at the Roman amphitheatre in the heart of Verona in the summer months under the open sky.
Verona is a World Heritage Site for its urban structure and architecture. Above all the beautiful sites is the Arena, a huge Roman amphitheater from the first century. The daily mean temperature between June and early September is 21C to 23C. This is perfect for an outdoor performance in the Arena. There are famous operas, concerts and ballet performances to chose from.
The historic city center is beautiful and can be explored on foot. It is like an open archeological site in-between the many beautiful Renaissance palaces. And yes, it is famous for the setting of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”.
