This is a beautiful church and very well worth visiting. There is also a nice wee cafe just next to the church where you can get a nice coffee.

Very peaceful and pleasant place - no a big wow like some cathedrals with rich displays of art etc, but very historic and dignified.

Visit this one before the cathedral as it was the original place of main worship before the Duomo was built. Really interesting place.

This is a very old historical basilica still in use for mass. You get an option of paying just to see the basilica E2.50 or visiting all four churches is E6.00. I only did the main basilica. It has original drawings on the wall and has a crypt as well. Worth a visit as don't think you will see anything... More

One of the masterpiece basilicas (i.e. a cathedral without a bishop) found in most architecture textbooks. On several levels, with a chiostro and tower. Can be visited for a modest fee (which helps covering maintenance). A must visit in Verona.

Gorgeous and stoic Romanesque church, with massive pilasters, beautiful exterior facade and fascinating crypt housing the body of San Zeno. The church is rich with symbols and history. Be sure not to miss the ancient graffiti on the right and left walls of the high presbytery. The cloister is particularly romantic and calm, with a beautiful light at all hours.

St Zeno is the Patron saint of Verona & there is an old statue of him inside the church. It is unusual because he's portrayed smiling. During our visit, a group of Russian Orthodox church members arrived a held a service in the Crypt. Their chorale singing was beautiful in such a setting. This church is one of four which... More
