These are very ornate tombs and well worth a walk by and a few photos. The church is nothing special.

While walking around the city center of Verona, you can stop by the Arche Scaligere. You can admire the stonework from outside; if the gates are open you can enter with a small payment (either 1 or 2 euro, can't remember exactly).

This was not opened when I went past but it was a very interesting place to see. Loved how the tombs were up high. It was really interesting with the strange architecture.

Very unique architecture and tombs. We only walked by to view and did not go inside the gates or the church. Would not pay for a tour, but simply look up info about the place online if interested.
