I went a few weeks ago. Absolutely wonderful experience but just to warn you I’ve never in my life been so hot. We were up quite high sitting on the stone amphitheatre bit, and of course the stones soak up the heat all day .....then the heat doesn’t escape due to the nature of the amphitheatre plus you’re pretty tightly squeezed in. Even at 11 pm it was scorching.
You can hire or buy cushions (essential) and there are plenty of refreshments. You can take in food and a small bottle of water each but no alcohol (you can buy it in there). Plenty of toilets.
Verona itself is stunning. A very pretty city. Where are you planning to stay? We got a taxi there and back from Bardolino but there is a tourist opera bus for the season.
Thanks for replying. We’re staying in Torrei del benaco so will drive there earlier in the day to look around/eat. Might investigate paying for parking somewhere nearby so we can get off as soon as we’ve left. Hoping for one act at least... 😂. What time did you arrive and did you have to queue for long? Any tips on where to head to?
We got there a couple of hours before and did some window shopping (plus the inevitable Juliet balcony trip). It was fun. Loads of beautiful restaurants. We sussed out which entrance we had to go to and went for a drink just opposite so we could check when a queue started forming, so we only queued a few minutes (they have security checks at the gates).
