Because there was a funeral ongoing, I could not go inside the church but its outside is amazing, all in white stone and the inner court is also quite amazing and peaceful to walk by. Liked it a lot, although is a bit far away from the center of Verona (20 minutes walking, I would say).

This basilica is around the corner from our hotel, so it was a must. €2.50 entry per person was quite reasonable, which included a map and audio set. Well preserved frescos, sculptures and other works. Beautiful original church doors were my favourite pieces. Lovely courtyard gave a sense of serenity. If you're staying in San Zeno, it's worth a visit.

We visited this amazing church/basilica and were totally impressed by the grandeur. There is a beautiful huge door on the side facing the square, with two tall pillars on either side. The outside of this wonderful church is carved beautifully.To gain access,you need to go in through a smaller door round the other side to what looks like the main... More

This beautiful Romanesque church is definitely not to be missed, even though it is a short bus ride (31,32,33) from the centre. To the side of the main door are good sculptures including the Emperor Theodoric chasing a stag into Hell. Joint top attraction is probably the marvellous bronze doors from the 12th Century. Lovely wooden ceiling and a massive... More
