You cannot miss this one! It's size and beauty are amazing, and there's a gift shop and coffee ship outside the church. It's a definite hot-spot for travelers and not to be missed....plus it has the remains of St. Paul.

First visit to the Basilica.....never knew about it. Fantastic space, peace and beauty. Really should not be missed. I think it is the largest in Rome, even though not the most famous or most visited. Almost a secret.

Much preferred over St. Peter`s. More space. A sense of calm serenity but full of archeological and architectural interest. Splendid museum. Excellent loos, bookshop and cafe.

This Basilica where the body of Saint Paul (except the head) is buried is well worth a visit. As it is situated a bit outside the central rome makes it into a rather peacefull place.
