Gorgeous frescos and stunning bronze doors in a beautiful romanesque church. This is one of the four churches on the Verona card. It's a little out of the centre but definitely worth the visit. The piazza outside has some good cafes and a toilet.

This is indeed worthy your visit- even if its just one church in Italy you'd want to see... Rich Italian/ Catholic history in its light and open atmosphere. Enjoy the mural paintings on the walls and find the ancient basin. There's a not to miss an old saint in the catacombs!

A beautiful church hidden away slightly but well worth a visit.... It doesn't look to much from the outside but lovely inside.

Beautiful church is a must see. The crypt is fascinating and story outside. The ceiling and second flor balcony a must see. Note the stairs and lack of support that is traditional.

Very old and historical church. One cannot imagine how such artwork was created so long ago and have managed to withstand time. Gorgeous gem!

La Chiesa is very interesting from an historical perspective and well worth visiting. Fantastic market which happens all around the San Zeno Chiesa on the first Sunday of every month - recommend a visit.

€2.50 entrance fee, so its not expensive. Rather large church so impressive for the area and given the size of the city. You will not need to spend long in there.

Away from the busiest parts of Verona, this lovely building is an oasis of calm and beauty even at the height of the tourist season. It costs just E2.50 for an adult entrance and there is parking nearby at E1 per hour. Visitors are supplied with an information leaflet and significant artefacts and frescoes are all described by notices anyway.... More

This church is definitely worth to visit and paying submission to go inside for closer look. Astonishing.

You can buy a pass to visit the four churches in Verona which is less expensive and all four are in walking distance of each other but great history as they are over 600 years old. San Zeno is well worth a visit and also to the crypt .
