We were pleasantly delayed when we visited. It was a Saturday but when we arrived a sign on the door said it was closed to tourists for about an hour. A wedding was in progress. How nice to see the church actually is used. Once inside it, of course, was amazing with the art. A fresco is very famous; I... More

We bought Verona cards here, which we thought were good value because we went to lots of other places on the same day. I don't normally find churches that interesting but this really was spectacular. Every surface is adorned with pattern, ornate carvings or paintings. It is definitely worth a visit.

What a wonderful visit. It is a beautiful church with a lovely fresco by Pisanello - there is a short video about it available in 4 languages. As an added bonus there a live classical music. A fantastic experience. It worth visiting all 4 churches on the cumulative entry ticket.

The Italians have such lovely churches. This one is beautiful and we stumbled across it by accident. The outside is fairly standard but inside it is a wonderful building and well worth a visit when in Verona.

I was unable to go last time I was in Verona and had to wait quite a while to get in this time as there was a wedding being held. It was worth the wait to see the Italian customs. The church is absolutely magnificent and worth every euro to visit.

From the outside this has to be one of the most impressive buildings in Verona. It is just a couple of minutes walk from Piazza dell Erbe. There is a small charge for entry and ladies are asked to wear a shawl if they have bare shoulders. This church took over two hundred years to build having been designed originally... More

Friendly welcome with a small charge of 2.5€ and an information leaflet in English. I found the building and art work quite awe inspiring. It was a joy to be somewhere so peaceful and to be able to wander or sit not hurried by others.

Although there is a smallish charge for entry to this church, it is well worth going in to view the ceiling artwork alone. A nice facade as well.

I thought I'd be charged for entering if it wasn't on a Sunday but I wasn't! They just ask that we use one of the shawls they have if your shoulders or legs are showing. Sant' Anastasia was beautiful!

A really impressive basilica, more so than the duomo, I think. Apparently it took hundreds of years to build: we had a builder like that doing our extension, so I know how they must have felt! Anyway, leaving that aside, it means that there are a few different decorative styles but very interesting and a great atmosphere.
