San Lorenzo Maggiore ist eine Kirche und ein ehemaliges Kloster in Neapel, Italien. Sie befindet sich geografisch genau im Zentrum der antiken griechisch-römischen Stadt, an der Kreuzung der Via San Gregorio Armeno und der Via dei Tribunali. Den Namen „San Lorenzo“ tragen auch das in den Gebäuden des Klosters neu eröffnete Museum und die archäologischen Ausgrabungen eines griechisch-römischen Marktes unter der Kirche.
I would highly recommend everyone to do a tour here, was one of the best guided visits I have experienced (our tour was in Italian, don't know about English, availability and quality-wise). The archaeological site is fascinating and very well preserved, the different strata of Greek/Roman/medieval city building are very visible. The part of the Roman forum is really illustrative of the period, and the arched Greek cistern is especially worth seeing, as such structures are very rare. The church complex is also worth a visit, especially with the information from the tour. Highly recommended!
Worth a visit to the underground streets, some dating back to 6BC. Take the tour it's worth it!
One of the best Neapolitan churches. It's architecture is expressively Gothic. There are a lot of medieval tombs of XIV-XV centuries. Admission is free but any donation is welcomed and highly appreciated. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.
Good spot to see some ancient excavations, easy to get there, tickets are reasonable.
Beautiful basilica with a wide array of impressive works of art from early Renaissance works from the School of Giotto through Ferdinando Sanfelice's late 18th-century Baroque facade.
A very educative visit but a guide is needed. Otherwise it is just a series of ruins built over one another. But very well maintained.
Hidden gem. Worth leaving Brighton UK just for half an hour here. I ll return. The church is worth a visit but the ancient renains are unbelievable. And there were few there. It was v cool temperature wise.
