“Surprise guide”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2011

We were fortunate to meet a group of liceo students who were acting as guides, and they were extremely well informed about the archeological work being done.

“A Medieval surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2011

A tiny crypt with an amazing tale. Worth paying a few EUROs to visit. I won't give the story away, go for yourself. The guide spoke very good english and was very knowledgable about the area.

“twenty first century technology spoils lovely church”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2011

go back to proper candles - electric candle substitutes with blown bulbs are not worthy of this church.

“A beautiful cathedral perched over the Positano beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2011

A surprise of sorts, not touted much as a site but a pretty little church within steps of the beach.

“Wonderful Church - very popular for weddings.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2011

We went to a wedding here. A beautiful, typically OTT Italian church, angel singing and Mary all in blue. It's a welcome coolness in the heat of the day and it really dominates the town. Funny thing was, even thou our friend had a ceremony there that day there were still two other brides outside, posing in their dresses for weding photos, one english one japanese, apparently they do wedding photo packages based in Sorrento...that says what a lovely site it is.
