San Lorenzo Maggiore is a church in Naples, Italy. It is located at the precise geographic center of the historic center of the ancient Greek-Roman city, at the intersection of via San Gregorio Armeno and via dei Tribunali. The name "San Lorenzo" may also refer to the new museum now opened on the premises, as well as to the ancient Roman market beneath the church itself, the Macellum of Naples.
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.
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.
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.
Good spot to see some ancient excavations, easy to get there, tickets are reasonable.
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.
Worth a visit to the underground streets, some dating back to 6BC. Take the tour it's worth it!
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!
