Layered art history — that’s what you get at San Fermo. The lower church is atmospheric, with frescoes and fragments of earlier frescoes covering walls and the massive pillars that hold up the later church above. The upper church is also covered in works of...More

This church is undergoing extensive renovation work at the moment but the paintings and altar decoration seem are still superb. The older, underground church should not be missed.

There are a number of churches worth visiting in Verona and one is definitely at the top of the list. The church is very ancient and has a unique and intricate wooden ceiling.

This is my favorite church in Verona. The ceiling is amazing! But then, you go downstairs to another church below it, that was from the 11th century (and is still in use today). And below that, as seen through several plexiglass plates in the floor,...More
