Got the Verona card and was told this was open but when we got here it was closed.
It was nice to view from the outside though.

If you don’t have the Verona Card that gives you free entry, it’s not worth it. You can see most of the tombs from the outside and there is little information apart from a piece of paper they give you when you step in about it. We spent around 5 minutes there.

The church of Santa Maria Antica is overshadowed by the imposing Gothic tombs which can be see from the street.

When you step into these monuments you can imagine how magnificent were the times when the Scala family was dominating Verona, and wanted to leave a sign of its power through these burial tombs.
Wonderful

These look like magnificent tombs but on the day of our visit there was no access and the entrance gate was padlock. Hence the average score.

The Gothic-style tomb complex of the Scaligeri family is monumental and shows how powerful and wealthy the family was. This place is impressive and a little creepy at the same time. Don't miss it when you're walking the streets of Verona.

It’s one of those: “you can’t miss it” sites in Verona, Italy because it occupies a whole city block. Scaligeri is the name of the family ruling Verona for around 200 years, but even remained involved for many more years. (1200- ). Some of their Italian names translate to DOG, I’m not sure if by choice. Our tour guide told us the first ruler Cangrande was known as: Top Dog. Cangrande was good friends with Dante and even edited The Inferno. Now, that’s power. We weren’t permitted to go in and, because of the iron gate, it’s difficult to get a really good view of the statues.

The tombs of the powerful ruling dynasty of Verona, the Scaligheri. The tombs were ornate metalwork and extremely crowded on the day we went when it seemed that all of Italy was in Verona for the day.

A display of power from ancient Verona 's most powerful family, the Scala (hence Scaligheri), this complex of tombs is outside, symbolizing, I think, the whole family's heart and wealth, as well as their bodies, their physical persons, belonged, not to the family itself, but to the city. To Verona. If this is not a love display, than I have no idea what it is... Architecturally speaking, these are stunningly beautiful, and a living proof that, as far as fair Verona is concerned, beauty is not indoors, but rather, outside. Enjoy.

Great detail...worth a walk around. I did not go inside...had I known there was something to see I would have.
Just walking Veona and entering nothing is worth the tip. We loved feeling like we wee in the Middle Ages. This monument is just more wonderful details.
