Another beautiful church with a particularly impressive front. Although still central, this doesn't feel like a tourist area so you might want to head there if you are fed up with crowds. Around the corner from the church are the public gardens which are worth...More

We didn't have much time so we couldn't give it the respect it probably deserves. We had a quick peek in. It's difficult for this immense church to compete for tourists against the Byzentium heritage.

Stunning church when looking from the beautiful piazza in front. Inside it was a bit disappointing, it's just like any other church you'll find Italy. Nice place for a selfie outside but nothing much to see on the inside.

This imponent building of the Basilica of Saint Mary in Port is a great attraction. I found this Basilica beautiful, clean and I would say take time to see it.
