From Venice to Verona a day trip: by train to the Arena
The easiest way to get to Verona from Venice is by train: there are many trains traveling between the two cities every day. The journey from Venezia Santa Lucia station to Verona Porta Nuova will take about an hour and a half.
After passing Porta Nuova, the main entrance to the city designed by the architect Michele Sanmicheli, and the Gates of Piazza Bra, you can reach the symbol of Verona: the Arena. Classified as the third-largest Roman amphitheater in Italy, after the Colosseum and the Capuano amphitheater, the Arena of Verona is a diamond set in Piazza Bra, which attracts millions of visitors every year.
We suggest visiting it. When you’re inside, sit in one of the many seats and close your eyes. It is very simple to imagine it crowded with people, animated by gladiator fights or lit by the spotlights of a modern rock concert.
Its elliptical shape is the reason behind the Arena’s perfect acoustic, making it one of the most evocative concert venues in Northern Italy: every summer evening, the Arena hosts around 15,000 spectators who come to Verona to attend the famous Opera Festival.
