  • I finally managed to visit this gem, taking advantage of setting up the Nativity scene Museum. Imposing building, rich in works in the heart of the old town. Worth a quick visit. They are not able to visit a nave with chapels because they were pleasantly passing the polisher on the marble floor.

  • Maybe a little "snubbed" this beautiful historic Basilica. In the reviews we read much of the permanent exhibition of cribs (for God's sake, beautiful, historic, interesting ...) and not on the extraordinary series of paintings it contains. And there is so much more. Before you "jump" in subterranean Naples (close), making a pass in this Basilica ... is all well and good.

  • Great Neapolitan Baroque style, lovely, restored, presents the peculiarity to host the permanent Museum of the Nativity scene. The characters are great, on a human scale or even more. The characters are Parker but beautiful, very manicured, detailed faces and clothes well packaged. Is composed of all social classes and all ages of life.

  • Nice church, but the neighborhood is pretty ugly.
  • A must see in Napoli
  • The Basilica of San Paolo Maggiore is a basilica Church in Naples, located at the Greek Agora (and later of the Roman Forum), in Piazza San Gaetano, built on the ruins of the Temple of Castor and Pollux, of which there are two columns of Corinthian order with its lintels that sprout from the façade. The basilica houses within two important works: the guardian angel by Domenico Antonio Vaccaro that represents one of the most important Neapolitan 18th-century sculptures, and the sacristy by Francesco Solimena. The sanctuary of San Gaetano Thiene is one of monumental churches of Naples; It stands in the heart of the historic centre: it is part of the complex of the Basilica of San Paolo Maggiore. The whole monastery has three places of worship. The second in size and importance is located to the right of the main church and has its own separate entrance on piazza San Gaetano. Contemporaneous with the main church, the shrine was carefully designed by Francesco Solimena: of the latter are also the frescoes present in the middle of the aisle. The reliefs depicting the history of Saint cajetan, are creations by Domenico Antonio Vaccaro.

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.
