Apart from Shakespeare’s plays, Verona is mostly famous for its impressive arena. Built during the 1st century, the building is still used to this day. However, the gladiators were replaced with opera singers a few decades ago. During summer, Arena di Verona hosts amazing operas for thousands of people. There’s nothing like taking a stroll through the gorgeous Piazza Bra during a summer evening and hearing the beautiful opera music. And during daytime, you can take a closer look at the amazing sets that usually can be found outside the arena.
