4.6
#39 of 67 in Historic Sites in Naples
Church Tourist Spot
Head off the beaten path to discover Basilica dell'Immacolata al Gesu Vecchio, home to a rich history and impressive artwork. Construction on the grand church lasted from 1554 to 1624, and it features a Jesuit college and refectory. Though often upstaged by the New Jesus Church, a more popular tourist attraction, this minor basilica plays host to a number of treasures. Walk up the central aisle to view the Neapolitan Baroque altar, featuring a sculpture of St. Francis Borgia, one of the early Superior Generals of the Jesuits. In the side chapels you can glimpse centuries-old paintings.

Where to stay in Naples

Naples' lodging options include everything from turn-of-the-century historical mansions to hip boutique hotels. For a five-star experience in the heart of town, book a centrally located luxury hotel. Less expensive but just as comfortable, traditional inns just outside the central area offer peaceful comfort, private parking, and private outdoor space ideal for quiet dinners and small parties. If you are looking for a less urban experience and prefer to stay in a leafy neighborhood, consider the city's residential suburbs.
