  • The Cathedral of Verona, full name Cathedral of Santa Maria Matricolare, is located in the medieval city, inside the loop of the Adige river, not far from Stone Bridge. On the façade are white and rose marble, columns supporting arches, and sculpted, plant motifs, hunting scenes and figures of Saints. The portal is carved with images of biblical prophets and real and fantastic animals. Is a beautiful Portal, surmounted by a lunette with a bas-relief depicting the Madonna and child, wise men and shepherds. The Interior is divided into three naves by tall red marble pillars. The nave ends with the main Chapel. In the side chapels there are numerous sculptures and paintings, especially from the Renaissance. The most famous is the one with the painting of the assumption of the Virgin by Titian. There are also 3 pipe organs. The Bell Tower was never completed, it seems not to exceed in height the Lamberti Tower, thus saith the legend but it was actually due to lack of funds, even then, as now, was like that!

  • A beautiful complex with a rich cathedral full of masterpieces and an interesting archeological excavation place underneath the church of St. Elena. The price, 3€ is fair as the place is well-maintained, clean and well organised. This includes an audioguide and a booklet. Definitely a monument to visit in Verona.
  • Spectacular cathedral with wonderful works of art stretching from the Late Medieval period to the Renaissance and beyond.
  • Very impressive building complex which was very open and welcoming. Worth a short walk from the shopping area.
  • Affordable (2,50 incl audio guide) and really worth to visit.
  • A beautiful aggregate of Romanesque churches all connected to each other, which the biggest is Verona Domus containing a Titian painting. Useful audio-guides are included in the fee (3€).
