Teatro Romano, Verona

Teatro Romano, Verona (must see)

Well-known for its many concerts, music performances, and ballets, the Teatro Romano seats 25,000 people. Having actually been built during the first century, it is one of the oldest monuments in Verona.

For centuries, the ruins of the theater were buried underneath residences constructed on the property. In 1834, Andrea Monga bought the houses and began the renovation process. It is because of his efforts that the structure was saved.

In 1904, the city purchased the area and continued renovations until the 1970s. Although most of the structure was lost due to the ravages of time, the cavea, tier of seats, several arches of loggias, and parts of the stage and the old theater survived. One can truly take a step back in time when visiting the Teatro Romano and imagine its many great performances.

The theater is well-known for its Shakespeare Festival held from June to August each year. Jazz concerts in May, plays in June, and ballets in August are just some of the treats to enjoy. Admission is free on the first Sunday of each month. Other attractions near the theater include the Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Spoleto, the Basilica di San Salvatore, and the Tower's Bridge.

Why You Should Visit:
To enjoy wonderful panoramic views of the city, lots of Roman ruins of columns and arches, plus mosaics and frescos – all in one place!
One admission ticket gains access to both the Teatro Romano and the Museo Archeologico right above it.

Tip:
If you brave the climb up the seven flights of stairs, make sure you have your ticket with you or you'll be denied access at the top.
