The interior of the church is one of the most outstanding examples of Gothic church architecture in Verona. Its proportions and various elements of its design, however, are still markedly Romanesque.
In front of the first column facing the nave are holy water stoups supported by human figures in a crouched sitting position, known as the "hunchbacks" of St. Anastasia.
"St. George Saving the Princess from the Dragon", Pisanello's most famous fresco, used to be above the arch of the second chapel in the transept, now is in the sacristy to the left of the transept.
The view at campanile and battistero of St. Anastasia church from the bank of river Adige.
