Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta, Verona

Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta, Verona (must see)

Italy's cathedrals are known for their beautiful works of art and the one in Verona, built on the former site of two Palaeo-Christian churches, lives up to this reputation. It is is a Romanesque and Gothic style church that dates back to the 8th century.

The house of worship features stunning design and works of art such as the Assumption by the artist Titan and the Adoration of Magi by Liberale da Verona. The design of the curved choir and apse and the sculptured baptismal font can only be fully appreciated in person. There are also many ancient Christian artifacts that visitors will appreciate. In addition, the Capella Mazzanti houses the sarcophagus of St. Agatha.

The exterior of the building features a two-story porch decorated with sculptures by Master Nicolo, Gothic windows, and an unfinished bell tower by Michele Sanmicheli. The interior of the church has one nave and two aisles that are divided by red Marble pilasters. Inside the church are many works of art by local artists. The west bays are decorated with frescoes by Giovanni Maria Falconetto.

Tip:
Do visit the beautiful Baptistery of St. Giovanni in Fonte at the back of the Cathedral complex, with a huge octagonal baptismal font covered in scenes from the Bible.
The excavation area showing the old Roman remains is also interesting, and there are good explanations on the audioguide.
