    I am not a lover of churches, but surely history and this place definitely has its history. We have been told by the custodian Antonio (if I'm not mistaken her name), who has guided us to this sordid little unassuming pantheon of Naples. It was a very pleasant surprise and very interesting.

    We arrive in front of the basilica and we are being prevented from entering because cold shoulder. I agree the block despite the 40 degrees and in spite of all the other churches in Naples has a handkerchief at the entrance, buy a scarf and go back five minutes later, and in the Church we find several people totally exposed, the "controller" also gives access to blocked sites who pleases finally still freezes access to a little girl racerback. Clearly a beautiful structure, unfortunately experience ruined by this way of doing that is what lets the image that has the world of Naples.

  • Really pretty! Urban myth says George Lucas got inspired by it to invent the buildings of the planet Naboo
  • Impressive circular cathedral. Great place for a party! Too bad they won't let me take pics inside.
  • Beatifull. But you mast wait for opening time.
  • Couldn't get in when. I visited and outside is Scruffy and run down people use the square as a dog park so a bit messy Such a shame looks like it could be spectacular
  • Lovely architecture but that's about it. No information about the building historically or in the present day.

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.
