One of the most beautiful Romanesque monuments I' ve ever seen. A big white-paved square overlooks the church. On the façade a fantastic rose window and, on both side of the door, a kind of stone-carved cartoon, explaining to the illiterates stories from the Bible and the Gospel. Inside, on the altar, a Mantegna painting and many other masterpieces of... More

Great church with plenty of beautiful things to see inside including the relics of St Zeno. The outside is beautiful as well.

Must see church in Verona, located just a hundreds meters from Castelvecchio and the arena, in a quiet area, this place emanates spirituality and inspiration for all.

This is one of the finest examples of Romanesque churches I have seen in Italy. The bronze gates and the portal are especially wonderful.

Also knowed as Verona Cathedral or just Duomo of Verona, it's an amazing buiding to visit. You can go to the top of the tower.

I'm sorry but this is the Basilica of St. Zeno, not the Verona Cathedral, also known as Duomo. In any case this is a false review: you have not visited it because it's not possible to go to the top of the bell tower, nowhere in Verona. More

The ticket costs 2.50 € which is reasonable price. The church is moderately decorated (romanic), has a nice inner courtyard, frescos and main doors that you cannot see from the outside because they are protected by the plain, wooden doors from both sides.

San Zeno basilica is a can't miss when visiting Verona because the statue of the city's patron saint Zeno is there. The church has frescoes, a crypt and a beautiful cloister. The bronze panels on the doors are well worth a long perusal (if they are on show). There's a large square in front of the building from which you... More

I'm not a religious type and so my judgement is based solely on the architecture (wow factor) and, for me, though San Zeno is worth a look, it didn't give me as much joy as Duomo.
