What impressed me the most was the lower Romanesque church with beautiful frescos from the 11th century. Great to see the 2 architectural styles in one church, and again another beautiful ship's keel roof ceiling (on top of the one to see in San Zeno Maggiore, among several others masterpieces to see there). Totally worthy of a visit. So much... More

This church sits atop a much older church, which is still in use. That one, however, sits above ruins of a church from the 5th century! The ruins can be seen through glass-covered holes in the floor of the downstairs church. The big church up top has an incredible wooden ceiling! My favorite church in Verona for sightseeing!

Substantial renovation work inhibit the views both internally and externally at present. However, there are still important works visible. Accessible with the 4-church pass for €5 (reduced). San Fermo Maggiore is close to Ponte Navi on the eastern side of the old town. The banded stonework, typical of Verona can be seen at the south west main door, which displays... More

This is the oldest church in Verona, and was very beautiful, however the Church is undergoing significant internal renovation works at present which hinders the opportunity to see much of its beauty. The audio guide (inclusive with ticket price) was incredibly interesting, and really focused on the much older lower vault/church.. For 6.50 euros you can get a pass which... More

We purchased a ticket which gained you entrance into 4 churches. Perhaps because we visited this one last, but if you can only visit a couple make sure you go to the Duomo and Anastasia. Right now the main church here is under renovation.

My favorite church in Verona. It would be worth the visit just for the frescoes in the upper church. When you descend into the older church it's amazing and more older frescoes. We spent ages wandering around in here.

Standing near the river is the church of San Fermo. What makes it so interesting is that the 'top' church is in the baroque style while if you go downstairs, the lower church is in a much older, Romanesque style with frescoes dating from around 1100-1200. I preferred the lower church but the upper church has a number of interesting... More

This church has a wonderful surprise in that it is two churches. The upstairs is wonderful with amazing frescoes. However little did I know that downstairs there is another church from the tenth century with stunning art, architecture and artifacts. Suggestion: Get the church pass for six euros and visit the insides of four different churches in Verona. Great deal... More

A simple church was built here in the 5th century. Then in the 10th century, it was razed to its foundations and another church was built. Some of the foundation is still view able. Then in the 12th century another church was built over the second church. The second and third churches are both usable and function as a single... More
