Rock concerts in the Arena

Have you ever seen a rock concert in the Arena?
I love rock music rather than Opera and even if Opera festival (in italian is called Lirica) is the most famous festival in the Arena of Verona, I love going to concerts and I want to tell you that if you come on holiday in Verona, you don't have to underestimate modern music inside the amphitheater.

Fairs of march in Verona

This month the main event in VeronaFiere, the location for every trade fair of the city, is Samoter.

I am talking about Elettro expo and Model Expo Italy.
