Beautiful alternate layers of stone and bricks. Very well preserved church. If you came by car, there is plenty of parking nearby and the price is not so expensive.

Don't miss a visit here! It took some time to find the entrance but what an amazing place. We visited many churches on our stay in Verona, but this is one of the finest and most moving of them.

Spectacular Romanesque architecture with interesting details - austere and a good contrast to the Gothic churches in Verona. The cloisters are a highlight. A beautiful walk away from the city centre.

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.
