We traveled to the church to visit the crypt where Maria Goretti is laid to rest. At such a young age, she had such a huge, loving and forgiving heart. The gentleman in the bookshop shared a lot of information about Marietta and her family and for that we are grateful. The room set off from the crypt has an... More

A very inspirational and holy place of pilgrimage!! A very nice half day trip from Rome where you can also see the Med and eat along the water.

Nettuno is in general not interesting, this church is no exception. I've seen 50 better churches in Italy and at least 1000 in my life more beautiful than this one. Dull.

The church is a lovely, peaceful spot. Exhibits on St. Maria Goretti are really interesting and very well maintained. The nuns in the museum/gift shop are very kind and helpful.
