No matter where you turn, there is something beautiful to see. The thought that this has lasted for so many hundreds of years is mind boggling.

We were unfortunate to visit on a Sunday morning and there was a servic so we did not go inside but it is certainly worth the walk to see the the beautiful exterior. As an aside there is a great garden cafe just opposite to whet your appetite with a spritz which we did.

Although a very pretty cathedral, it was not as unusual or interesting as the Chiesa San Zeno or Chiesa Sant'Anastasia.

I spent the second of two days in Verona touring churches. This was by far the favorite with absolutely stunning paintings and sculptures. Both the interior and exterior of the church are architectural marvels. I would highly recommend a visit to anyone coming to Verona.

This is large and impressive, but the artwork is nothing special, and after a while....it is just another large church.

Interesting church but completely over the top decoration. We much preferred the old chapels which were plainer and had a cool calm atmosphere. The roman foundations were well displayed and were the highlight for me.

You may thing you've seen them all, but Verona's duomo was a highlight of the trip here. We spent a good hour and a half here and could have easily done more. The interior has pleasant shades, great art, colorful chapels, and an overall feeling of modesty. It has paleochristian sites as well. One of the best.

We visited on a Sunday morning during mass. The cantor and choir sang like professionals. Came back later for a look at all the beautiful frescos, spectacular organ and chaples. A truly beautiful church and I'm glad to see it is being used for it's original purpose and not just as a tourist attraction.

A beautiful building inside, well worth a few moments of your time when in Verona. Indeed, the other churches in the city are equally inspiring. Don't be put off by the cathedral exterior with its crammed-in location and (when we visited) scaffolding....lovely inside.
