Bought a 4 churches ticket and visited them all - very different types - loved this one with the different levels . The outside is very impressive and lots of art work to admire.

Those who want to have an absolutely good moment go to San Zeno Place in the evening. The sundown emphasize the beauty of the church and the kids are playing, old and young, in the place in front of the church when the tourist-mass is gone.

Spectacular artworks. The crypt used for Romeo and juliets marriage in the movie is worth seeing, as is the statue of St Zeno.

Crossing the stunning Castelvechhio Bridge, we visited the mediaeval Basilica di San Zeno Maggiore on a chilly day in early April 2013. Highlights for me were the magnificent bronze doors, dating from the 12th century, which are decorated with 48 panels showing biblical stories and the lives of Saint Michael and Saint Zeno - as well as the Romanesque cloister...

Well worth a walk from the city centre, ideal after a morning visit to the museo di Castelvecchio from which a riverside stroll to Piazza San Zeno will provide a delicious glimpse of the Alps.

A spectacular building with beautiful paintings and statues. The church is well worth the entrance fee - the amazing bronze sculptured doors are well worth a study :-) Plenty of very interesting information regarding San Zeno (The 8th Bishop of Verona) himself.
