The San Lorenzo Maggiore is a nice church to visit whilst in Naples. It's grand with alcoves that are decorated with statues and paintings. The architecture of the church is very impressive with columns, arches, and decorative stone work throughout and the roof is stunning.

This 13th century church was built on an old Roman-Greek ruins that have been opened to tourists since 1992. The church entrance was difficult to find as there was work going on outside and the underground tour groups crowded the entrance.Inside was quite elaborate.

Basilica is almost invisible from far distance because it is incorporated into other buildings. All around basilica is very crowded with people and it is not possible to stop and enjoy in peace only from inside
