Stepping inside the Basilica, I had a chill running along my spine. Even though I don't follow religions, the atmosphere inside Sant'Anastasia brought me to my knees. The decoration was mesmerising. It was like entering a completely different world

Next to all the things to discover I recommend to take the time to watch the 10min video about the fresco which is located at the head end of the church around 10m up. The question remains why does an artist makes such an effort for a piece of art nobody can see in this height?

Sant' Anastasia is a beautiful church. The details in the painted ceilings were incredible. The floors were a gorgeous pattern and so colorful. While we were there, there was an organist playing soft music...this made our time there even more special. Something about the quiet music playing made the experience more sacred and peaceful.

Start here and buy the ticket (unless you have a Verona card) for the four churches in the area. Largest church in Verona with beautifully painted interior. Buy the guidebook to Verona Le Chinese. Well illustrated with all the highlights.

The lovely ceiling with a floral motif on a very light backround gives this Gothic cathedral a very joyful feeling, strengthened by the spacious design and other lovely art and design elements. It was a pleasure to spend time there, reading the clear signage and brochure available at the entry. I was also lucky enough to be there when a... More

When you walk into this gem of a church it takes your breath away - the ceiling is glorious. Right in the middle of the city too.

Overwhelming in its size and decorations from some very famous artists. The ceiling is especially interesting.

Beautiful church built at the height of italian gothic, and as it couldn't be otherwise, highly decorated with statuary and the most amazing floral motifs that cover the whole of the vault. Well worth the visit
