I believe that the churches of Verona are all beautiful but Santa Maria in Organo is a kind of pearl of rare beauty. The church is simple, very characteristic and ancient, dating back to the fifteenth century. Located in the homonymous "Piazzetta Santa Maria in Organo", is absolutely a must-see, it only take 15 minutes to visited, it really worth.

This Church is a hidden gem from 6th century and rebuilt in the 1470's by Fra Giovanni of Verona. It is full of frescoes, the finest examples of marquetry in the choir room and once had the alter piece painted by Andrea Mantegna (now in Pinacoteca Brera, Milan). One of the favourite objects on display is, Christ arriving into Jerusalem... More

A wonderful little church, very simple, with a calmness and sanctity that is missing from some of the larger, more ornate churches.

I would not wish to bore anyone by repeating at length my glowing review of this exceptional church , but subsequent reviews lead me to believe it might be helpful to point out three things; 1 The room at the back with the marquetry ( intarsia ) is the sagrestia , in English a vestry, where the choir and clergy...

This church is amazing in that it holds some incredible treasures that I think very few tourists get to see. It is relatively small compared to some of the Duomos around, but what it lacks in size it certainly makes up for in beauty. The rear left room (chapel ?) and behind the main altar, hold an large number of... More

Bags of history and atmosphere. Staff very helpful to allow you to get the most out of you visit. The lower church is a wonder. Fantastic art works.

Just the most beautiful choir stalls in this church, reckoned to be the most impressive in northern Italy. The workmanship is astounding and they stand comparison with any, anywhere.

No admission charge in this mid sized medieval church often overlooked by visitors to Verona. Other than the usual altar pieces and frescoes, one should not forget to take a good look at the choir and sacristy. Unique decoration was inlaid wood masterpieces by Fra Giovanni. In a series of panels depicting life scenes from the Renaissance, the paintings were... More

The above is a quotation of Giorgio Vasari (1511-1574) whose judgement is reckoned to be pretty sound on these matters. I am not quite sure how Fra Giovanni da Verona (1457-1525) managed to accomplish such a wealth of such beauty but apparently he not only carried out the marquetry behind the altar and in the sagrestia but he also painted...

My wife and I have passed by this church dozens of times and never bothered to enter. We decided to step in one afternoon and were taken aback by the amazing beauty within. The entry fee is only a couple of euros and worth every penny.
