    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.

  • A must see in Napoli
  • A beautiful church. Artistic Nativity scenes are exposed but the lighting does not see them as they deserve. The watch does not offer much information, is too busy to see the smartphone

  • The area on which the basilica was the center of civil and religious life of the Greek-Roman Naples, home of the Agora and the Roman Forum before then. The original building has been continuously transformed without ever being scrapped completely. The Interior has three naves with transept and apse, has a veritable compendium of Neapolitan figurative art between ' 600 and ' 700.

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.
