I liked the unobtrusive and silent video display to help you make the most of seeing the fresco that Pisanello did of George and the Dragon

Different in style and more opulent. As an amateur organist i enjoyed a second treat listening to another practice although sadly not as extensive a demonstration as the basilica

There aren't many gothic style churches in Italy, which makes this gothic style church an exception. It has a sculpture by the Veronese's (Paolo caliere) father and some very interesting frescoes, but there is one by Pisanello which is different to most other frescoes I have seen both in quality and theme.

Beautiful church, like so many others in Italy a veritable art gallery. Not a lot else to say about a church really. Great that they allow photography without selling you a permit!

A church with a splendid Gothic portal but an unfinished facade. Look for the two hunchback figures holding up the holy water stoup. There is a most wonderful frescoe by Pisanello of St George and the Princess high up on anarch over the Pellegrini chapel - you can see it close up on the video - a most beautiful piece... More

2 Euro charge for entrance is nothing compared to enjoying the beauty that this church has to offer. The murals across the entire ceiling are breathtaking, and the artwork adorning each wall are spectacular.

We happened to stubble across this stunning church on our day visit to verona. The exterior of the church gives nothing away about what awaits inside! The grandure, ambience and artwork is stunning..well worth a visit..think it cost €2.50 to enter..

If you are in Verona, this is a very nice church to visit. It is very bright and feels different from other churches. We liked the ceiling of it. There are many details in this church that you may miss at the first glance. So take your time to see all the statues and paintings.

Lovely church to check out while you stroll the streets of Verona. We have bought the 4 church pass and visited all in one day, this was our favorite.)

A visit to this church is a must whilst in Verona. It is one of the most beautiful churches anywhere in the world and we had the added advantage on this occasion that a wedding was about to take place so the church was decorated and bedecked with flowers.
