Not far from Verona's town centre, for centuries guarding the calm river Adige, the Roman Theatre presents its self to tourists with a stunning visual effect, proposing a striking visit for its imposing archaeological remains, particular location and interesting museum complex.
A wonderful open air theatre that is particularly picturesque because it is one of the most important archaeological monuments of Verona and part of the town's Archaeological Museum, which still used as a theatrical area in summer and hosts the town's summer theatre season..
Set in an elevated position in relation to the Roman Theatre there is the Archaeological Museum in the former 15th-century convent of San Girolamo.
It has a number of archaeological materials from the area around Verona, materials from the town's collections as well as many works held in its depositories and displayed during special exhibitions. A cultural and historical complex consisting of buildings and cloisters that should be regarded as truly worthy a visit.
