I went into this basilica on nice sunny evening when there was nobody inside. Even if the streets were buzzing, silence and peace immediately surround you. It is richly decorated without overdoing it. The crypt contained all the offerings to the saint and gives you a nice view of the surroundings behind the church. It was a nice moment during... More

Although not as highly decorated as the Cathedral, it is never-the- less a spot worth visiting. Yes it is quite ornate but the gem of this church is in the chapel that is downstairs below the alter ( you can actually see it thru a small aperture infront of the altar). This small chapel has a few scenes of the... More

filled with beautiful statues and paintings, it is in piazza de saint antonino where there are several good restaurants. We ate in Il Buco Ristorante right next door. Expensive but everything was delicious.

Our hotel was just in front of this basilica, on the S. Antonio square. Once entering inside, we were nicely surprised by a very beautiful scenery. Very nice decorated. Loved it.
