Really lovely and unique church. It looks a bit different than the other churches we visited but it is a must see. We were lucky that there was a wedding on when we were there, it was lovely to see a church being used by the locals

Stunning and well preserved exterior, with sufficient of the interior frescoes remaining both in the main church and the crypt, with different layers restored to provide comparisons of the evolution of veronese painting and a magnificent Mantegna altarpiece.

You can get a little "churched out" in Italy's magnificent cities but this one is worth doing. It is quite different in design, don't miss the crypt and the spectacular front doors!

This is really a very interesting and nice building from the exterior as well as the inside, with lots of frescoes, sculptures, funeral monuments. All has been restored and the frescoes are very fresh.

Wow, this church is amazing. The interior is amazing. Frescoes adorn to interior of which the lower part dates back to around 1065. There is so much to see. As much as I dislike having to pay to go I to churches, you need to see this one.

If you visit Verona you can't miss this roman church. It looks nice outside and when you go in you will be enthusiastic.

We arrived early in Verona after our stay in Venice. Our room was not ready in our hotel nearby. They suggested we visit this beautiful church. The exterior is pretty but the interior including its gardens are absolutely stunning. The church was set up for a Wedding which was due to start in one hour. There was a string quartet... More
