“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Although only 100 years or so old, the whole building is magnificent and seems to have a very special calm quality throughout.
It is well worth the 2 Euros each to ascend the adjacent Bell Tower from where there are superb views over the towns, both modern and ancient!

“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!
