Simple and graceful, in the tiny village of San Giorgio on a hilltop in the Valpolicella area (beautiful view of the hills and valleys, all the way to Lake Garda), the church and the cloister attached to it are worth a visit if in the...More

Very eerie old 8th century church with many wall frescoes but very difficult to enjoy due to the bad lighting inside the church.

The frescos and ancient altar were can't miss historic sites. The church is built in the old Roman style and the views across the street are beautiful

This is a bit of a trek uphill on a narrow road from Sant Ambroglio, but well worth the effort. The village itself is a real gem with quaint old buildings and the beautiful historic church. You have to park outside the village, but it's...More

The small town where this small church is located is a good destination for a nice tour on a winding road through the wonderful valpolicella wine country. The small church, romanic in architecture, is a small wonder. Afrescos, the altar and a nice cloister all...More

Hard to know when the church is open except for Sunday mass which is a great pity because the view from up on top of this tiny town is best in the late afternoon. Church and the outside stone areas on its approach and courtyard...More
