This is fantastic church in city where there are fine churches everywhere! We were recommended to go there from our hotel, although it is a little on the edge of the main tourist area but it was so worth it. Do think about getting a Verona Card - it saves on the admission prices if you are going to call... More

One of the 4 main churches in Verona, this is the most impressive. The detailed interior was amazing and quite extensive. Really welcomed by the staff, a must see.

People tend to say San Zeno Maggiore is the must see church of Verona, it truly is a beautiful church and you should definitely visit it when you visit Verona. (But I think the Duomo is even better, you should visit both and find out for yourself ;) )

A visit is well worth while, unfortunately a wedding was taking place so we left early but we did have the enjoyment of watching the wedding guests arrive

lovely frescoes make sure you look at the pictures and read the description of St Zenos travels around Verona in 2013 and the carbon dating of his remains which is situated in the cloisters. Go to this as No2 of the 4 main churches to see

A grand church about 800m from other attractions. It's very unusual with an upper and lower church at the Eastern end. The cloisters are are very cool and peaceful.

This church is away from the centre of town but is worth the walk. The split level is interesting and the frescos are lovely.

This church is dedicated to the patron saint of Verona, a black bishop who converted the city to Christianity. That fact makes it slightly more interesting than most churches. Also, the metallic figures decorating the inside of the front doors are simply amazing.
