  • With the noisy streets run in this temple is definitely nice: inside the cool, dimly lit and sound recording male choir. A good opportunity to take a breath, slow down a little and take a breath. Beautiful mosaic on the floor in the main church and on the walls in the aisle.

  • 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 ...  more »
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Hiding in the quaint downtown area of Cathedral. Beat for a moment as a good place to be.

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.
