Not much but you can visit
Aug 2020
This is one of the buildings that highlights when you see the city from Castel San Pietro. The church is not much but is worth the visit.

Huge dome, but not best church in Verona
Sep 2018 • Couples
This is yet another impressive church, in a city that is full of them. That said, it is not as good as some of the others, although the dome near the altar is very impressive.

Renovation under way
May 2018 • Solo
There are some interesting paintings to see here, but it's not one of the better churches, despite being one of the largest. Most of the exterior is under scaffolding & tarpaulin as of May 2018.

This church was having construction on the outside when we visited. We went inside while they were having church service . We walked around looked at the beautiful inside then said some prayers and left.

A cool place on a hot day
Aug 2016 • Friends
Initially built as Benedictine monastery in 1064 on the banks of the Adige River. But over the years it has been demolished and rebuilt many times. The bell tower was designed by Brugnoli in the twelfth century and still stands. The bulk of the church is made out of local brick with white marble, and Corinthian pillars, between which are the statues of St. George and St. Lawrence Giustiniani. Check out the dome it is really beautiful, under it are four chapels on each side of the single nave. There are many painting and frescos on the walls, the best i think is the painting by Tintoretto showing the Baptism of Christ above the large door.
TIP; look for the traces of French rifle fire, on the walls after the battle of 1805, when the French attacked the Austrian's.

Interesting, quiet, free church, see Tintoretto and Paulo Veronese
Jul 2017 • Friends
We were walking along the north side of the river and wandered into this church. No tourists inside, but a nice volunteer was manning the place. Although she spoke no English, and my Italian is limited to what sounds like the French I remember, she followed us around, flipping on lights to illuminate the paintings. She made sure we knew that the painting over the front door was Tintoretto, and at the front was Veronese. Then she led us into the side chapel and in her animated way, showed us wooden paintings of people praying to Jesu for miracles that came true.
This church is part of the Verona Minor Hierusalem, which includes 7 Verona churches that you may perform a form of pilgrimage, and you will get a "notebook" that can be stamped at each site.

Interesting Church
Apr 2017 • Couples
During our free time on the tour we took the opportunity to view this lovely interesting church, it is located adjacent to the river, it can be spotted by its large green dome, when we arrived there were only a couple of visitors there, a nice place to visit and get away from the crowded city

Peaceful haven
Jun 2016
This is directly across the river from the cathedral. Crossing over the Ponte Garibaldi, you enter a much quieter and greener part of the city, with virtually no tourists. It`s free entry into this church with a lovely domed interior and geometric tiled floor. Outside there`s seating with a panoramic view of the river, amphiheatre and Stone bridge; where after a few minutes stroll you can cross back into the city by the cathedral. I sat in the shade and read for a while, enjoying the peacefulness and the view.

Fantastic panoramic view.
Oct 2014 • Couples
Wandering through the city I saw in the distance this church, the first thing that struck me was the green dome highlighted by distance. The church is located adjacent to the river, but when I went near it I noticed with amazement that there were no tourists, a very rare thing in a church in Verona. I believe that this church and this place is a bit 'underestimated, and it is undoubtedly a building worthy of note.

A Church of interest
Dec 2014 • Couples
We did one of the suggested walks around Verona and crossed the river and headed along the Lungadige san Giorgio and came across this church which is said to have begun in 1447. Additions to the Church continued through the centuries and from the outside the Church looks like bit have been added and I guess this give a bit of intrigue to its existence.
Inside there are two parts of a painting of the Judgment of St George and also beautiful statues. There is also a 16th century organ worth a look.
