Sant'Anastasia is a huge and lofty church built from 1290-1481 by the Dominicans to hold the massive congregations attracted by their rousing fundamentalist sermons.

BASILICA DI SAN ZENO

The Basilica di San Zeno (also known as San Zeno Maggiore) is the best known religious building of Verona. Its fame rests partly on its architecture and partly upon the tradition that its crypt was the place of the marriage of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Together with the abbey which forms an annex, it is entitled to St. Zeno of Verona.

Fašade

The church of San Zeno constituted the model for all subsequent Romanesque edifices in Verona. Built of cream-coloured tuff, the fašade (now under restoration) is divided into three vertical components, the central nave surmounted by a pediment and the two aisle with sloping rooflines, all supported upon small pendented blind arcades. The intersections of the three parts are marked by angled pilasters ending in foliate capitals below the pediment.

Bell tower

The bell tower stands as a separate building. It is 72 m-high and was begun in 1045, being finished in 1173. It is stylistically Romanesque like the church, having a central vertical belt of alternating tuff and brickwork bands, It is divided in floors by cornices and small tuff arches, and rises to a double-storied bell chamber with triple mullioned windows. It is surmounted by a small conical spire with small pinnacles at each angle. The exterior is decorated by Roman sculptures. The older bells were from 1149, although only one of them remains now.

The Abbey

Attached to the basilica is an abbey was erected in the 9th century over a pre-existing monastery. Of the original structure, destroyed in the Napoleonic Wars, only a large brick tower and the cloisters survive. It had originally another tower and the abbot's palace. For long time the abbey was the city's official residence of the Holy Roman Emperors. In 1980s a restoration discovered frescoes from the 12th–15th centuries.

Going west, not so far from the city, you can find Lake Garda, the largest Italian lake, located between Veneto region, Lombardy and Trentino.
The eastern shore belongs to the Province of Verona.
