“Nice Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Nice Church - not really a tourist attraction unless you are Catholic. Pleasant bars in the area though...

“Well restored after allied bombing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

The basilica is a site of special veneration, connected with 2 miracles. It comprises several interconnected parts: early Christian catcombs, a very lovely romanesque bell tower and then a largely 15c church. Like so many of the buildings in this area it was clearly fairly comprehensively damaged by allied bombings in 1944 but has been sensitively restored and rebuilt.

“catacombes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

the catacombes were facinating, must do, well worth the few euros charge. The whole church felt welcoming.

“Festa time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

This was spectacular - the festa (July 23-24th) was brilliant - a parade through the streets with tableaux. the basilica is lovely on an ordinary day but was beautifully decorated for the festa.
