  • The Cathedral of Verona, also known as the Cathedral, dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta, stands out for its "complexity", both architecture (question in fact a complex of religious buildings, s. Giovanni in Fonte, St Helena, the Chiostro dei Canonici, Biblioteca Capitolare, Canonical, the Bishop Museum) and artistic (early Christian remains Romanesque Bell Tower, inside, outside, Romanesque, Renaissance, eighteenth-century and nineteenth-century paintings also). Beautiful is the facade with larger two-storey porch signed by maestro Nicholaus and dated 1139; Romanesque masterpiece is the octagonal baptismal font of the baptistery (s. Giovanni in Fonte), made from a single block of marble, bearing carved episodes of the infancy narratives.

  • The Cathedral is part of a complex that includes early Christian churches with mosaic floors. Loved the battesimanale source of San Giovanni in Fonte. The Cathedral so rich of decorations is not as fascinating as the ancient remains

  • A complex of chapels & the main cathedral are definitely worth a visit. The main cathedral building is beautifully adorned but not as spectacular as the Santa Anastasia. Still splendid though.
  • Wow. One of the most beautiful Churches I've seen!
  • Outstanding artworks.
  • Very big cathedral in the heart of Verona.
  • A must see! Entrance 2,5€
