We visited this amazing church/basilica and were totally impressed by the grandeur. There is a beautiful huge door on the side facing the square, with two tall pillars on either side. The outside of this wonderful church is carved beautifully.To gain access,you need to go in through a smaller door round the other side to what looks like the main... More

We have reserved our accomodation nearby and I can say that it was a rather good solution! The district San Zeno at all is really enjoyable! The church is impressive (surpasses all) and unforgettable. I suggest to everybody
