The Basilica is very big and beautifully decorated in spite of the mix of styles. It's a place were believers feel compelled to pray, but at the same time it' s opened to visitors. We visited during a mess and they didn't close the church...More

The church is interesting and beautiful. It is elaborate and is a point of pilgrimage for many Christians. Worth going into even if you are not of the faith.

You have full in your eyes and nearly too much things for your mind to catch all in one visit! Several centuries of History and Faith!

Interesting too see the chapel and grounds but no pictures allowed inside. Extensive gift shop. No waiting for Confession. Lots of small shops nearby for souvenirs and a good bakery across the street.

Simply beautiful. Even if one is not religious this place is very spiritual. I was disappointed we could not take any pictures. The saints tomb is unique I don't recall seeing anything similar/spectacular elsewhere in Italy

Went there as a day trip from Venice. Only 26 mins on the train. Beautiful church. However it is not somewhere to spend a whole day, I would say 30-45 mins inside the church is probably more than enough. Do remember to check out the...More

The devotion of the people who came to venerate St. Anthony was inspiring. I'm afraid that I saw too many churches so only the really outstanding churches made an impression.

Beautiful basilica which houses the tomb of St Anthony. Very emotional time as we prayed for our loved ones who were not well. Cannot take photos in here, but well worth visiting. Lovely square outside with lots of activity and a separate gift shop that...More

Yes . There is a large shop in the Basilica itself (you can’t get back into the Basilica from the shop so do the shop at the end ) and you can also sign up to the St Anthony’s Messenger in the shop. The exit from the shop... More
