Verona train station to Opera

by DaveSamaroo

Hi:

(1) how to I get from the Verona train station to the Verona Opera House. Short Walk? or do I need a taxi or other form of transport to get there? I will be travelling by train from Venice on June 20th around 8pm to see the Aida opera so time may be of essence as I would need to collect my ticket beforehand (booked online).

(2) Incidentally, do trains tend to be booked up from Venice to Verona when the opera is on or can I just wait on the day and buy the ticket rather than booking that online.

Thanks for your tips so far - great help in planning this part of my tour.

1) It's not at an opera house, it's at the Arena di Verona! This tells you what bus to take from the station to the arena: http://www.arena.it/en-US/information/tourist.html?idblock=96
2) You can't book a seat on the train anyway, your train ticket is like a bus ticket: whether you buy it on the day or beforehand, if there happen to be no seats left on the particular train you catch, you would have to stand - although I doubt that you will need to.

Unless it's a reservation-only train (which it won't be) you don't need to book or buy a ticket in advance. As noted above, you just stand if no seats are available. It's the same in all the European countries I've visited.

Ciao a tutti!

1)If not bus (that around 8 pm probably are starting to be less frequent) it's 15-20 minutes of easy walk...
Look on google earth or maps or any other map system. Once out of the station, go right for a while, leave the ancient Porta Nuova (that gives names to the station, but part of the venetian-austrin fortifications) on the right, enter Corso Porta Nuova (again).... Pass just in front of my office (ok, this doesn't matter) and walking north up to the other sides, after passing the arches called "Portoni della Brà" you will literally stumble into the arena. The ticket office in on the other side, where the houses are close to the ancient roman amphitheater.

2) I don't think there are so many people coming from Venice to the opera... with no train back till next day... :-(

Enjoy the Aida, this year with the original edition that started the opera in arena back in 1913.

we will be seeing tosca on the 21st of june - i think booking in advance is preferable - the train staton - porta nuova -is an easy get to city center where verona di arena is - great atmosphere and the 20th is the kickoff of opera season - buona fortuna

when get off of the train, go up the stairs and to your right is a tabacchi shop - purchase a bus ticket and go out the front door and you will see the busses - they will be marked and you can take it to the city center - it is easily done and will be about a 5 minute ride

Travel Tips for Verona

Castelvecchio

by Jeca011

Castelvecchio (or Old castle) is another simbol of Verona. It was built in 1354-1355 as a home of Scala Family. Restorations have recovered parts of its original design because the Castle has suffered many modifications - the Venetian, the Frenchs and the Austrians changed parts of the castle. Even Napoleon constructed a courtyard inside its walls. Nowadays there’s a modern Gallery in the Castle the "Museo Civico d’Arte". Here you can see original equestrian sculpture of Cangrande from the Arche Scaligeri.

Panoramic view of the city

by croisbeauty

Closer look to the old core of the town, with the church of Santa Anastasia in front and the Torre Lamberti in the back.
Torre Lamberti, situated on Piazza delle Erbe, is the highest tower of the city which offers magnificient view at the old historical centre.

Piazza Bra - Palazzo della Gran Guardia

by croisbeauty

The Palazzo della Gran Guardia, the first building on the left of the Portoni, although similar in style to the work of Sanmicheli was, in fact, built in 1610 by Domenico Curtoni. The Palace remained incomplete until 1820, and is notable for its massive bulk, as well as the forceful design of the facade, the doorway, and the windows.

hanging out at the piazza

by alza

I saw lots of tourists hanging out around Piazza Brà, the Arenas, and on Corso Puorto Nueva. I went there too, to get some pics developed. But didn't find anything particularly Veronese about the Corso. Once I reached Piazza Brà, I walked around and admired the Arenas, but headed straight back to Via Mazzini, and the beautiful Piazza delle Erbe and Piazza dei Signori.
I didn't even make a detour for Juliet's balcony. Apparently, it's not guaranteed to be authentic and I'm not that interested in those stories.

Back at Piazza Signori, the guy with the pony tail was real cool and nice so we talked a bit while he watched his girls play and stopped one from hitting the other cuz she wanted the trotinette. The mother was close by but didn't seem to notice a thing or to want to get involved. She was totally blazée.

The family trilogy is standing in front of Scaligeri Palace, the home of the Della Scala family in the 12th century. Dante apparently took refuge in the Palace at one time.

Packing List

by croisbeauty
