  • What is presented here as a church, it's actually a Byzantine Basilica, including 4 in Naples but whose core goes back to the time of Emperor Constantine. It is a must visit, and after restoration and Foundation Management Engineers Naples is often also hosts conferences and concerts, with a busy schedule. Huge and impressive interior space, unexpected in an area of high congestion!

  • the Church of San Giovanni Maggiore and the city of Naples is a beautiful church, place of worship and aggregation of the faithful

  • Might seem like yet another Neapolitan Baroque church, but special attention is to be accorded to the apse, representing the ancient Foundation of structure, dated to 324, with subsequent expansion in the second half of the 6th century, when the Church was one of the 4 basilicas along with San Giorgio Maggiore, the Holy Apostles and Pietrasanta. The sequence of arches divided by pilasters surmounted by capitals tell of that era. The restoration of the nineteenth century they covered, or maybe saved, the ancient structure, and still worth a visit!

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.
