Get ticket to visit four of the main churches of which San Zeno in one. A bit out of the way from the centre but worth seeing, particularly as they provide audio equipment which explains the frescos in details

San Zeno is one of Verona's finest treasures. It is beautifully maintained with cogent and quite easily understood commentaries on audio devices in several languages.

You have to walk a little out from the main historical area of Verona to find this church; it's well worth the effort. Beautifully clean and restored it's a stunning example of Romanesque architecture. The Mantegna altarpiece is wonderful. The headset tour is very good...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.
