A visit is well worth while, unfortunately a wedding was taking place so we left early but we did have the enjoyment of watching the wedding guests arrive

A grand church about 800m from other attractions. It's very unusual with an upper and lower church at the Eastern end. The cloisters are are very cool and peaceful.

This church is away from the centre of town but is worth the walk. The split level is interesting and the frescos are lovely.

This church is dedicated to the patron saint of Verona, a black bishop who converted the city to Christianity. That fact makes it slightly more interesting than most churches. Also, the metallic figures decorating the inside of the front doors are simply amazing.

Interesting church, with a beautiful cloister and an open crypt. The leaflet provided gave sufficient information to explain the various items of interest (paintings, architectural features etc)

Beautiful interior, nice statue of San Zeno. Good access, in very quiet place. Taste ice cream on the square in front of the church

A basilica worth seeing. Very nicely done. It's a little walk out of the old town but if you have some time, worth seeing. We joined a service, which was nice to see.

It's a bit further away that most of the other touristy things to do in Verona but is well worth a visit. There are plenty of bars and restaurants outside the church too and a local bus that takes you back to Piazza Bra if...More

Hi, you can find the ticket at the entrance and this include other churches too. The audio is inside the church, but you will find someone there very helpful. The tour is less than 1 hour but it worth. Enjoy it :)

At the entrance of the 4 historical churches of Verona there is a basket where you will find some kimono that you can put over naked shoulders or wear if you are dressed with pants or skirt too short. This is a free service.
