We just got back from our trip to Israel last night…it was an amazing trip. We saw and did so much! I didn’t have a chance yet to go through photos or keep up the blog. I learned from my failed attempt to do a post a day for our European road trip that keeping up while traveling isn’t realistic. So stay tuned for future posts on Italy, France and Israel!
This post is about the Basilica of San Zeno: a must see if you are in Verona. We went to find San Zeno Basilica at the recommendation of our Italian host.
There were hardly any tourists here; we almost had the place to ourselves! It’s a lovely, peaceful church. St. Zeno is Verona’s patron saint because he was credited with converting the people of Verona to Christianity.
Our Italian host also gave us the tip that Verona’s best ice cream could be found next to the basilica of San Zeno, so of course we had to try it!
Verona was a wonderful surprise for us…we had no idea what a fascinating city it is before we spent a week there. You can read more about our stay in Verona here:
Verona is also a great city to use as a base for exploring other amazing cities. We did a day trip to Venice (stay tuned for that post). We also visited Lake Garda and Vicenza. You can see the photos here:
So, for anyone visiting northern Italy, don’t forget lovely Verona!
