Standing 31 metres high and seating 30,000 people, the amphitheatre dominates the centre of Piazza Bra, offering visitors a unique entertainment experience. Surrounded by its magnificent beauty and history, the arena becomes a stage for shows and concerts. The location is known for the Opera Festival, an event that began in 1913 with the first performance of Verdi’s Aida, and today a historic event of opera music held during the summer months.


basilica of san zeno maggiore

The Basilica of San Zeno is one of the finest examples of Romanesque architecture extant in Italy. Consecrated in 807 the building houses the relics of Verona’s patron saint, San Zeno. The façade, with its perfect architectural lines, is harmonious and intensely chromatic, decorated in a sober manner and immediately stands out to the visitor’s eyes the large rose window that stands out over the entrance to the cathedral.
