  • In relation to the Verona's cathedral/complex can be visited this beautiful Baptistry which is characterized by beauty and peace. The large octagonal baptismal font in marble is is from the thirteenth century and is decorated with reliffer from Jusus childhood. Here it is really bright and beautiful, a visit here is recommended!

  • The Romanesque baptismal font, attributed to the sculptor Brioloto, is superb. The characters, in their old draperies, adopt a sinuous, dancing and stylistic solutions are even daring, as the well balanced "sheepfold" in the Panel of the Annunciation to the shepherds, or, in the delivery of gifts, the figure of the King magician, who, already place the casket with gold in hand the baby and he, Pirouette on himself at the Angel's warning not to return to Herod. The massacre of the innocents has moments pulp, like gutting of a child by a soldier so cruel not to have more face, combined with special sweet, as the kids hidden in the mantle of mother desperately protective. To watch calmly, deciphering each of a thousand details.

  • Very well
  • Intimate and small church located a stone's throw from piazza erbe, here you will find a Foucault pendulum to the right of the main altar and one of the many black Madonnas.

  • Located very close to the Porta Borsari, this small Church traces its origins to the 10th century. After the fire that devastated Verona in 1172, which affected her deeply, it was rebuilt in the Romanesque style, although it suffered several reforms during the Baroque and modern times. In two of them, rush in 1902 and 1905, was the discovered part of the Romanesque structure. On the outside is a grave of marble with a cross and a triptych on the bottom; inside is highlight the bas-relief of the Virgin with child, the teacher Pulia. Magnificent Renaissance door, work of Gerolamo Giolfino, crowned by statues of San Juan Evangelista, San Pedro and San Juan Bautista. Also of great interest the fresco of Nicola Giolfino representing St. John on the island of Patmos. The Church can be visited during religious ceremonies. The entrance is free.

Where to stay in Verona

The historical center of Verona is packed with famous luxury hotels, which offer all the modern conveniences but also tend to be very expensive and require booking months in advance. If you're a spontaneous traveler visiting on a budget and staying in the central area is not one of your musts, consider checking into a small B&B or family-operated farm just outside the city. Verona's picturesque countryside offers less expensive but comfortable lodgings with good food and friendly hosts, all within a short drive from the bustling city center.
