“Stunningly beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

This Basilica is a do not miss! I have been to Pompeii before but went to the ruins day tripping and left. I am so happy we saw this gorgeous church. The nuns make it so special for me. They run the gift shops. Be sure to stop in. There a loads of masses too.

“Stunning Church!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Very stunning church this! Lots of art to keep the mind entertained! Lots to see, even if the crowds are everywhere. Best to visit early in the morning, to really get the feel of the church. Very impressive church with lots of inspriational pieces.

“Beautiful Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Beautiful Church

Lovely exterior & the interior is stunning.

They are very strict re clothing, so you will have to cover up.

Located in a nice Piazza in the centre of new Pompeii.

“Climb the tower”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

..well, actually take the lift for 2 euro and get 360 degree panorama of Pompeii. The Basilica itself is also beautiful, ladies, cover your shoulders!

“An enchanting gigantic basilica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Pity it was just a short hop off visit. Our visit was even shorter since there was a mass celebration going on and didn't want disturb. Yet the architecture is astonishing and the basilica is so nicely decorated with marble. Really liked the Madonna of Rosary alter and picture area. Basilica is located very close to the ruins of pompei so easily reached. Various souvenir shops/stalls outside, in the surrounding square (though can be quite expensive and owners pester you to buy). All in all worth visiting and even (if have time) participate in mass there. Various chapels offer such opportunity.
