    The beautiful and tiny Romanesque church of Santa Maria Antica was used as a votive chapel of the Scaligeri Lords: above the side door entrance was, in fact, placed the Ark of Cangrande I della Scala; Consequently the descendants of the ancient Church in adjacent small cemetery used the monumental cemetery of Family and still today you can admire the sumptuous Arche Scaligere suspended on stone canopies and decorated by complex groups of sculptures. Inside the Church is intimate and bright, rich in ancient devotions images still venerated by the faithful, as the beautiful medieval relief of "Madonna with child" carved stone ochre within an elegant triple Lancet window supported by two columns. It exudes simplicity and solemn elegance.

  • Awesome tomb structures outside the church. Would be five stars if visitors could get a little closer to the tombs, not just peering over/through fences. The church itself is small, but neat.
  • Wonderful ancient church.
  • Beautiful small church.
  • Nice to see but quite hidden behind the cage
  • Jolie architecture

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.
