Your experience

Meet with your guide outside the Arena to join this guided tour, then skip the long queue at the entrance. Walk under the old marble arcades and listen to stories of gladiators and of the ancient Roman games that used to take place here. Admire the preserved ‘Ala’ or wing, which is the only piece remaining of the outer third circle. Discover facts and anecdotes with the help of your professional guide that will explain to you the long and extraordinary history of the great amphitheater. The Arena, which survived an earthquake in the 12th century, is still nowadays the city’s favorite Opera Hall, for its unique sound quality and history.

Isabella

Hi, I am Isabella and I live in Verona, but I lived in many Italian cities. My mum is from Venice and my dad from Verona, so I feel 100% Venetian. I studied to be a teacher and a journalist, but then my passion for travel has prevailed. I love travelling and I have always traveled a lot, near or far. I love seeing places, meeting people, trying new experiences. Japan thrilled me, I would like to go to Kamchatka. Here I specialized becoming a tour leader and a tour guide to tell people about the beauty of my homeland. To this I combine my other two passions: food and wine. What to say? Italian DOC!

Priscilla

I’m Priscilla, a proud veronese that was brought up in lovely New Zealand. I am a mix of passion for: art history (my university degree), music (my part-time occupation) and sports (I played golf competitively when a teenager and I’m keen on skiing and love to bike). Music has a major role in my life: songwriting gives me wings and I have the luck to be able to produce music from time to time. On a regular basis, I sing in the Schola Cantorum (the choir) of the Cathedral of Verona, one of the oldest in the world still operating. I am very excited that my profession gives me the chance to unveil the many gems that Verona has. Meeting people through my profession is something that I cherish and I always look forward to be inspired by their own stories.
