Dear Guest:

Due to the constantly changing regulations, we recommend that you check this section periodically for updates and to verify which are the regulations in force before the date of your attendance.

Please, find below our FAQ. We hope they will address any questions or concerns.

I have a voucher issued following the cancellation of the 2020 Festival due to Covid. When is it valid till?

The vouchers have a validity of 36 months from the date of issue (the date indicated on the document in your possession will be considered valid).

Vouchers can be used as a form of total or partial payment for tickets regarding the shows scheduled for the Arena Opera Festival 2022 on the site


What happens to my voucher once it expires?

At the end of the 36 months, although not foreseen by law, Fondazione Arena di Verona has decided to reimburse any vouchers not yet used.


Can I cancel or modify my ticket?

Once purchased, tickets cannot be refunded or exchanged for another date and/or sector.

Tickets refunds before the event are never provided.


I would like to purchase a ticket but I am afraid that the Covid rules do not allow me to participate if I am positive. What can I do?

As a rule we do not refund purchased tickets.

However, we are aware that Covid-19 can make it genuinely impossible to come to Verona. In this case, the ticket holder can choose to exchange the ticket for a different date during the same Festival (2023).

The following are considered as objective hindrances:

- Proven health reasons due to the Covid-19 emergency;

- Prohibition of travel to Italy was established by the country of departure;

- Prohibition of landing in Italy;

- Lack of flights for reaching Verona easily.

Please contact for assistance.


What happens in the event of bad weather?

Should weather conditions prevent a performance from being staged as scheduled, Fondazione Arena di Verona may postpone the beginning by up to 150 minutes.
