Highly recommend this site with interesting remains from the early Christian Church of St Felix. The first two churches pre-date the church built by Paulinus of Nola in the 4th century which he describes in letters and poems. The site and museum have remarkable early frescos, marble sculpture, and Roman remains from the former pagan graveyard. Enzo, the caretaker is very knowledgeable and kind enough to explain the site to us. As a medieval historian, I was surprised and impressed with the site. A must see!

Hidden behind a row of unassuming houses, this complex of 9 early Christian basilicas dating from the 5th century was a real find. It costs very little to get in (€2) and is a real eye-opener to the life of the early Christians in Campania. Lots of hidden frescoes and mosaics that are very beautiful. The place is in a pitiful state and there are a lot of mosquitos but the staff were very knowledgeable and showed us around speaking English very well.

It is the site of the first Church bell in Christendom and also purports to be where the miracle of San Gennaro in the furnace took place.

Greatly exceed our expectations. A quiet, intimate setting, there was only one other family there during our visit. The complex features exhibits from many different time periods, including exposed tombs with visible skulls and bones.

Easily walkable from the Cimitile Circumvesuviano train in a quaint neighborhood, it's definitely worth a side trip.

The complex occupies an area of more than 8000 square meters in the town of Cimitile (whose name originates from Coemeterium, the latin word for Cemetery). There are remnants of burials and several buildings, which date back to the third century BC. Unfortunately, the place looks run down and poorly protected. We could not find a guide, nor a audio-assisted device to help us through the compound and illustrate the many centuries old history. A simple, free flier helps to get the gist of the place and its most relevant items. I should recommend that you allow at least 1.5 hours for the visit and that you read about the place beforehand.
