Verona's Cathedral (Duomo), Verona

4.3
Consecrated in 1187, Romanesque cathedral Verona's Cathedral (Duomo) features 14th-century frescoes and a projecting porch that is supported by two griffons and decorated with 12th-century sculptures by Nicholaus. The Gothic windows are part of 14th-century renovations, while the Baroque designs at the top of the facade came along in the 18th century. The cavernous apse dates to the mid-12th-century. Stick around to hear the church bells, still rung in the Vernonese tradition. The cathedral is included on the multiple-monuments pass the city offers.

  • 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.
