I had that advice and they were correct. It is amazing, the art is stunning. Explore the rooms and chapels that are connected to the church. They are mysterious. They should run guided tours or give you a recorded option. It would have been more enjoyable to learn more about it from more than a small pamphlet. Would be good... More

The largest church in Verona , a Gothic construction erected by the Dominicans between 1291 and 1323, later reworked (1423-1481 ) has an unfinished facade and gives no hint of the exquisite beauty of the interior. One is met by a pair of 16C fonts -Acquasantiere dei Gobbi- whose bases are carved crouching figures ( hunchbacks ). After appreciating the... More

An attractive church with pretty decoration as well as the paintings/murals etc of local artists. Easy to reach over the Roman bridge or through the town and only 2.5 euros.

In Gothic style, it is located in the most ancient part of the city, near the Ponte Pietra.

Impressive Gothic Church in Verona with great pieces of Art inside. We paid €1 per person to get in instead of €2.50 because we came with a guide.

I am a fan of gothic style and thought hat this was one of the best. Art is everywhere. Gorgeous! One of the highlights of a visit to a fantastic city. Don't miss visiting this when in Verona.

Went in only because it was pouring outside and man was I happy I went in. The ceiling was unexpectedly spectacular. Because we went close to closing time the entrance was free. If you want to go during the day I think it's €2,50 for entrance fee.

From the outside this church looks like nothing. Once you walk inside though you will be amazed at the detail and intricacy of this church. This is probably one of the prettiest churches in Europe.
