Your experience

Meet the local guide in Piazza Bra and start to visit, during a 30 minutes express guided tour, the famous Arena: the great Roman amphitheatre of Verona. Enter with your priority ticket and listen to the local expert telling you about Arena construction, its current and ancient use, and the historical legends behind it.  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’, which is the only piece remaining of the outer third circle. Discover facts and anecdotes about 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 open-air Opera hall, for its unique sound quality and history. Nowadays it’s famous for the Opera season that started in 1913 with the world-famous Aida.  During this tour don’t forget your camera: from the top of the Arena you can enjoy a 360° view on the beautiful Piazza Bra. After this express tour you’ll know everything about the most famous and beautiful Verona monument.

Benedetta

I’m a “very veronese” girl, born and raised in the old town of Verona. After studying foreign languages at the University of Bologna, I spent years living abroad, mostly in Spain and in Hong Kong, but I finally decided to be back home and started falling in love with the history of the city and getting surprised by its beauty. That’s why I became a tour leader and a tour guide: I love showing Verona and discovering it every day through my guests’ eyes. So, join me for a walk or a ride around my beautiful town!

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!
