It would be easy to walk by this church especially if it's a hot day and like me you have a husband who is tired of going into yet another church.. even he found this to be a beautiful little gem. A very small Church,...More

Was wandering past this little church and decided to go in. It is not at all inspiring from the outside but go in! It's small and charming. A lovely historic church.

We had no plans of stopping at this tiny church, but we stumbled upon it when we stopped to look at our map for directions for the Duomo. When we looked up, there it was. There is no entrance fee, so it is worth stopping...More

It's a small church which is easy to miss. What attracts your attention is the frescoes on the exterior wall of the building and at the arched entrance door. There is a sign in English with a good narrative of the church's history. The present...More

This small Romanesque church can be hard to find because It has no obvious house-of-worship facade. Instead, the church has been incorporated into buildings encircling it on three sides, and only a Renaissance door marks its presence. We stumbled upon the church while walking to...More

The church is alongside one of the main streets and easy to miss. It's more than a thousand years old and is interesting inside and out. Unusually for a site in Verona, it's also free to enter! Well worth visit.
