Basilica di San Zeno

Basilica di San Zeno

San Zeno is Verona's most famous church, dedicated to the first bishop of the city, worthy of a pilgrimage to see the doors, which are decorated with 48 8th and 9th century panels depicting scenes of the Old and New Testaments, and the miracles of San Zeno. They've got an enormously distant feel to them -- stick-figure people who look like those in the Bayeaux Tapestry, gargoyles and monsters.

The inside is cavernous, with a more recent ceiling, a crypt, and a beautiful high Renaissance Nativity by Mantegna.

It's only 500 metres from our HOTEL PORTA PALIO.


Opening time: Monday to Fridat 10.00 a.m.- 6.00 p.m.
