    Tastefully restrained elegance
    The antithesis of the typical Jesuit church. The lovely ceiling, the star of the show, is elaborate, yet has a light feel and definitely does not feel the least bit gaudy. It’s a relaxing atmosphere. And I love all those huge columns. By the way, this has a strong whiff of northern Europe influence, as it looks more like a Swiss or a German or even a Sud-Tirol church than let’s say Florence or Rome. You will probably spend only at most 15 minutes here, despite it being a large church. So there’s excuse for not going.

    Amazing church!
    Our hotel concierge recommended this church as she said its her favorite in Verona and she was right! We loved it! What a beautiful Gothic church with amazing ceiling and ornate detail. This wonderful church was built around 1200 era by the religious Dominican Order. The ticket price was 4 euros per person but you can buy a combo church ticket etc

    Largest church in Verona. Rather plain red brick facade gives no indication of the beautiful interior riches.
    This church dates back to the late 13th century when construction began on the site of an earlier church. The building works took just over 200 years with the church being largely completed by 1400 although additional works continued during the next century, however, similar to some other Veronese churches, the facade was never completed. The imposing red brick facade is effectively divided into three sections mirroring the interior central nave and two aisles. The main portal has two doors above which are a number of arches with decorated lunettes. Above the arches is a single rose window. The sections either side of the central facade section, corresponding to the two aisles, each have a very long, mullioned, stained glass window. There is also a belfry on either side. The 72 metre tall belltower was completed in 1460 with four bells. It now has nine. The impressive and richly decorated interior is in the shape of a Latin Cross. The three large aisles are supported by 12 red Veronese marble columns while the cross vaulted ceiling is beautifully decorated as are the ceilings of the apse and the various chapels. The floor is white, black and red. There are five quite lovely chapels in the transept that contain a number of important works of art and frescoes. The main altar is quite impressive. It has four large columns and contains a 15th century work of art of "Our Lady enthroned between St Thomas and St Augustine". Also of note is a 15th century fresco by Pisanello titled "St George and the Princess" which is in the Pellegrini Chapel and the woodwork in the choir of Giusti Chapel. What also caught my attention was the hunchback figure holding up the Holy Water stoup. Well worth a look. Single entry cost was EUR4-00 or you could buy a ticket that would allow entry to four churches, including the Duomo, for EUR8-00.

This church having been begun in the late 13th century and completed in the 15th, it contains aspects of Romanesque and Gothic. They are pleasingly blended.

The exterior is not that interesting, but the frescoes inside are impressive. I don't think it is a top priority in Verona but entrance was included with the Verona Card so I took a quick look.

Incredibly beautiful church with jaw-dropping artwork from the 14th century onwards. Numerous side chapels showcase the work of many well-known sculptors and painters. I found the massive scale of the artworks, their age, and the quality of the artwork from over 600 years ago to be a stunning and humbling experience.

Another beautiful aged historic church in Verona! Very unique history and beautiful inside. There is a small fee which I don’t understand why people have a problem paying to see such history! I use an electric scooter and the front of the church area is extremely aged cobble (rough) but you can manage your way! There is also a ramp on the side and very easy inside! There is also an area outside with tombs which we didn’t visit but took pictures.
