  • Worth a visit. Audioguide was helpful. Free with the Verona Card
  • Beautiful Cathedral and a definite point to visit on any tour of Verona.
  • Main Cathedral church in Verona. The building is dated back to 1360 AD. Very nice
  • 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.
  • Cheap (2,50 incl audio guide) but really worth to visit.

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.
