Teatro Romano (Roman Theatre of Verona)

You can find the Roman Theatre of Verona, dating back to the 1st century B.C., at the foot of Colle San Pietro, on the left bank of the Adige river.

Today only remains of the edifice are visible, recovered starting from around 1830. They include the cavea and the steps, several arcades of the loggias and remains of the stage. Part of the cavea was occupied by the church of S. Siro, built in the 10th century and restored in the 14th century.

At the top of the hill there was an ancient temple, built on a series of terraces.

It is still used as a theatre space during the summer months, hosting the Verona Summer Theatre since 1948.

Next to the Roman Theatre, there is also The Archaeological Museum at the Roman Theatre,
a permanent center of archaeological exhibition in Verona.

Address: via Regaste Redentore, 2.
