Amazing site, architecture, old afrescoes, large building. A fair walk from the centre, but worth the effort. Do not miss the bronze door, the cript, and the nice altar. Very nice cloister.

This is by far the most beautiful church in Verona and on the way to the church a few feet away you will also find the best gelato!! The name of the gelato place is the same as the church, gelato San Zeno.

In our opinion better than the duomo this church is more beautiful and the architecture is stunning. Can get to it by turning right from piazza delle Ebre and straight to the end.

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.
