Sant'Ambrogio di Valpolicella is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Verona in the Italian region Veneto, located about 120 kilometres (75 miles) west of Venice and about 15 km (9 mi) northwest of Verona.

Sant'Ambrogio di Valpolicella borders the following municipalities: Cavaion Veronese, Dolcè, Fumane, Pastrengo, Pescantina, Rivoli Veronese, and San Pietro in Cariano.

Sights include the Romanesque Lombard (and perhaps pre-Roman) religious place. The interior has a nave and two aisles, of the same height, divided by piers. Some of the latter are decorated by 14th-century paintings. The basements of the columns are re-used Roman altars. The church houses also 11th-century frescoes, including a Last Supper; also notable is the ciborium, built during the reign of the Lombard king Liutprand (711-744). The bell tower and the cloister are also from the 12th century.
