Worth doing to understand the arena
, Apr 2022
Great tour. Interesting history and good use of different points to get an idea of the past and present arena. The guide was excellent
The tour was excellent as was our guide Isabella

What a great tour, so glad we did it. We learned a lot from Isabella. She cares about the arena, it’s history and future as well as the city of Verona.
Arena, Verona guided tour

Our guide was exceptionally friendly and informative. The tour was just the right length at 30 minutes. I would recommend this tour.

Thank you for your review, we are glad you liked the tour :) Can't wait to see you again :)
Great tour with the perfect length
, Aug 2021
The guide was really friendly and outgoing, her English was pretty good, too. We could ask questions ourselves and she had an answer to all of them. Despite that the information given wasn't too embedded in a long-winded review of the arena and Italian's history but very compact and interesting without overchallenging anyone. Although I was by myself I made friends easily and everyone was in a really good mood. Of course we also didn't have to queue for anything because our guide was getting the entrance tickets for everyone in a heartbeat (those tickets are included in the tour fee though). Would totally recommend!

Exceptional Arena Visit

After a very long visit to the Collessum in Rome, we were so pleased with the duration of the tour and the excellent presentation by our guide, Irena. The guided tour was fun and informative.

The Arean in no Rome!!!

, Oct 2018
Our Tour Guide was Irene and she was great, she gave us plenty of information about the history of the Arena and it's various uses over the centuries. However, the Arena itself was a bit of a disappointment as there just wasn't that much to see. it may have been due to the timing of our visit as they were busy putting seating away for next summers Opera Season. However if you go along expecting another Rome you will be disappointed. Overall we did not feel this trip was value for money as the whole thing lasted only 30 minutes. That said, we learnt a lot more from Irene than we would have done if we had gone round on our own. Maybe next time a visit when the Opera is on would be a better experience.

This was a fabulous tour with a knowledgeable but not overbearing guide who was friendly from the outset and had to navigate the tour round some terrible weather. She allowed us to drink in the atmosphere of the Arena and provided us with some interesting facts and stories about this fabulous piece of Roman history. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.

Very good tour, guide was excellent and gave a lot of information. As we were the only 2 people on the tour we could ask lots of questions.
