Great place to visit in Verona

Suggest you buy the 4-churches pass (they give you the map) and take your time to visit each one, look and enjoy their frescoes. Truly amazing places.

fascinating to see that new fresos had been painted on top of old ones. Huge church and good to learn about Saint Zeno - the black African patron saint of Verona.

If you only go to one place in Verona, this is the place to go. It is a short bus ride from the center. Beautiful architecture with informative brochure and signage.

just overwhelming place we visited on the last day of our travel in Verona. The city on its own is worth a visit for at least two days.

After visting several churches in other cities in Italy, I was particularly impressed with the detailed brochure that came with the admission ticket to San Zeno.

Beautiful church with a wonderful lower church dating from the 10th century. It is quite a walk from the city centre but worth it

Former Benedictine Abbey now a parish church. The striped walls were beautiful. The amazing ceiling and frescos, The church is divided in to upper and lower levels. The upper level sanctuary area includes a tryptic which is not to be missed. The smiling statute of St. Zeno was wonderful. It is located to the left of the main altar sanctuary.... More

This cathedral is very special. The story of St. Zeno is moving and the doors of bronze are breathtaking!

Beautiful pre-renaissance artwork. Very interesting. Probably my favorite church in Verona. Even the graffiti on the artwork was medieval!

Slightly outside the old town, standing isolated on the Adige bank, it is one of the most beautiful Romanesque churches in the world. All panelled in local golden and pink marble, it is a pure shape and a memorable view at sunset.
