I used the word impressive a lot in Verona as everywhere there is amazing architecture and awesome stonework to look at - often with little cafes next to it which you can linger I and enjoy the area, as there was here.

It's worth seeing if you're in Verona. Again, it sits above street level so you can't get right up to it but it certainly is a work of art.

There are some information boards, some in English, that give details about the family and tombs. Great examples of Gothic funerary art. The church and cemetery stand just northeast of Piazza dei Signori in the Old Town a short distance from Dante's statue.
