A visit to the Arena di Verona can be the experience of a lifetime for opera lovers and newcomers alike. The massive ancient Roman structure, warmed by the Italian sun, comes alight on summer evenings, resonating with the rich sounds of grand opera at its biggest and most extrovert, and illuminated by the gentle glow of the candles handed to audience members as they enter as much as by the vivid stage lights.
