Magnificent Basilica
May 2019
A must do for Naples! This basilica is incredible and will literally leave you
speechless!! It houses the blood/bones of San Gennaro as well as impressive art work all contained in a church that is very unassuming from its exterior. It was my favorite thing to see in Naples!

" Amazing architechture, history and art work"
Jun 2017 • Couples
This amazing Basilica has great architecture, history and art work, you must see the relies and treasure of Saint Gennaro the Patron of Naples, its a good idea to have some nice waling shoes and a camera to take pictures of this fabulous place. This is not really a very long stay, 1 to 2 hrs are enough to cover it.

This Gothic cathedral was named in honor of the city's patron saint. It is beautiful and memorable.
Of course Italy is renowned for beautiful churches and magnificent cathedrals but this is Naples' finest.

lovely church above the Naples catacombs
May 2016
when I got to the top of the hills from the red line bus I find myself not only enjoying the scenery but a very nice local church.
Very modest but beautiful paintings of Christ with diciples the servants.
It is the same Church where you will find the Naples Catacombs with the museum and entrance on the left side facing the church

Incredible History, Treasure, Architecture
Apr 2016
A visit to Naples cannot be complete without a visit to its Patron Saint's church. San Gennaro is to Naples what Saint Peter is to Rome and this Basilica is home to the Patron Saint's blood, bones and incredible history retold in beautiful works of art.
I highly recommend a tour guide for this basilica or pre-reading about its vast history and treasures.
We used a local guide you can find in Trip Advisor who gives tours in Naples, Pompeii and beyond. Her name is Ada and her company is called "Tours of Naples and Pompeii with Ada".
Ada was able to make our visit to this basilica very special by telling us all about the history and treasures with passion and unsurpassed energy.

Another Church of interest

San Gennaro was an important person of the Catholic faith. The church is beautiful and there is a wonderful story to learn about.

So helpful!
May 2015 • Friends
When we came to the basilica, one of our greatest delights was a basilica guide who took the time to explain the church to us -- including the significance of San Gennaro to the people and culture of Naples, the miracle of San Gennaro, highlights of the recent visit of Pope Francis and the historical context.

We felt welcomed by the warmth of the guide and it made a tremendous positive impact on our visit to Naples.
