The exterior is uninspiring and therefore doesn't command the viewer to walk inside. This holy site should be left to its parishoners for prayer and reflection.

A lovely find which is a stone's throw from the Palazzo Victoria. Said to be finished in the 14th Century there are some lovely frescoes by Caroto and it provides a quiet refuge after a busy day for quiet reflective time.

Utterly amazing. If you're into churches, this is not to be missed. It looks very unassuming from the outside but there's a big surprise awaiting you inside. It is vast.

This church is free to visit & provided a welcome refuge from the temperatures in the 30s! Like other ecclesiastical buildings in Italy, the interior has many interesting things to see.

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.

We wandered into Sant'Eufemia on our way to San Zeno Maggiore. Very old (11th-14thC), pretty and serene. Beautiful ceiling, stonework and statuary. We had it to ourselves and very much enjoyed a few minutes of cool respite listening to the bells. Worth a stop and a shame to miss.

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
