This is a "must-see" for any traveller to Verona. We enjoyed it so much more than the usual sights, beautiful and interesting as they are. It has a fascinating history as well as wonderful architecture.

Beautiful church just outside the central zone a pleasant stroll along the river bank brings you near the church. It is a beautiful church like so many in Verona with stunning works of art painted onto the walls and ceilings.

Wouldn't go out of the way to visit, but if in Verona, definitely stop in. The doors are a sight unto themselves.

We were amazed by this church...and I have to admit to having seen many churches over 40 years of European travel. The frescoes and the doors are worth any detour you must make to see them. Having also been to Padua to see Giotto's Scrovegni...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.
