The grandeur of the Verona Arena is like no other. The magnificent Roman amphitheatre located in Verona's largest piazza - Piazza Bra - is considered to be one of the world's best preserved ancient structures to be still in use at present. Built in the 1st century by Flavian emperors, Verona Arena could seat up to 30,000 spectators back in its day and is the third largest amphitheatre in the country - measuring up to 140 metres in length and 110 metres in width. It is presently host to several internationally-acclaimed opera performances, with candles during sunset for an incredible atmosphere. Though the opera season is typically during the months of June to August, the arena is flocked by visitors throughout the year.
