We looked in the doorway at this magnificent Church as there was a service being held and it was packed with people. The paintings on the ceilings were incredible. A real must see! At night it is lit up and looks incredible!

We had a quick visit and wanted to climb the bell tower but it was being repaired, so we couldn't. There was a service when we visited, which made it even more special. The Church is beautiful and well worth a visit.

You can take the Circumvesuviana to Pompei Scavi and then either walk 20 minutes into town or you take a taxi from the Circumvesuviana into Pompei town. I think the fare is about 10 Euro but check with the driver before... More

Suggestion: contact the church directly? The info is on their web site. I would not hesitate to write in English - many people in the area are very fluent.
