Arena di Verona, Verona

Verona, Italy

The stunning Verona amphitheatre is almost two thousand years old and still regularly plays host to a variety of operatic and other performances.  It was built in 30AD and has the capacity to seat over 22,000 people, hence the scale of many of the shows performed there.

Refreshingly, when you click on the information tab on their website, details of provision for people with disabilities is right at the top, highly visible and clear. The stalls are fully accessible to disabled guests, with ramp access from Piazza Bra and there are also disabled access toilets.  Free carers/assistant tickets are also available on production of relevant evidence.

We found the arena to be easily accessible with clear instructions outside and ramped access to the key parts of interest.
