One of the most important Romanesque church of north Italy, with frescoes, imposing and very beautiful. The entrance is on the left side of this picture, in a little alley way. San Zeno church is part of the "four churches" tickets (€6) or single entrance...More

Slightly out of the centre of Verona. Nice walk along the riverside to get there. The church is unusually 'split level' and the crypt is excellent for cooling off on a very hot day : the relic of San Zeno remains in the crypt. Nice...More

If you see just a few churches, this is a great one. I have a personal history here, because of the unique bronze door plaques, which are now displayed inside, not exterior as I knew them as a teenager. Each plaque on the huge doors...More

A tranquil spot in the middle of busy San Zeno. Go down to the crypt and you can see wonderful statues

Make sure you take something to cover your shoulders with to respect the faith of the church otherwise you will be denied access.

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.
