We weren't able to actually go inside the church as we were there Sunday morning. But we were able to sit in the square in front and admire it and then walk the gardens. It was a lovely church and some very nice carved front doors.

Well worth a visit if you are in the area, although there are several beautiful churches in Verona. As part of a stroll along the river it is a must

The church built in romanesque style is not only functional today, but also present one of the most valueble attractions in Verona. Beautiful from the outside because of bricks in two colours, and magnificant inside because of architectual achievments and beautiful bronze doors.

Definately a must see. Wonderful art work, and architecture. A bit away from the main centre and not much to see around.

On a rainy day, we decided to visit the four churches that are included in the Associazione Chiese Vive circuit. San Zeno is, of course, the most magnificent; the wooden ceiling, the bronze doors and the overall atmosphere are simply unforgettable. It's located quite off the touristic area, so beware not to get lost. The other churches are also beautiful... More

This is a truly wonderful example of Romanesque architecture. It is a bit of a walk best done from the Castelvecchio. Turn right ou from the Roman Bridge and head up along the walk by the river. Then walk into the Square of S. Zeno and follow the signs for the church. You will be amazed by the size of... More

I suspect, some tired tourists don't make it to this church in Verona, for it is located a little bit off the beaten path in this amazing town. Those who do, get rewarded with a very fascinating church that is dear to the hearts of locals. The Romanesque basilica is dedicated to Verona's patron San Zeno who came to Verona... More

Although this church is a little out of the way if you are staying in the tourist area, I recommend the effort of walking the 15 minutes from Arena for the visit. The church is a lovely Gothic style outside and inside is spectacular with frescoes everywhere you look, marvellous sculpted doors, art, sculpture and the crypt of San Zeno.... More
