We looked in the doorway at this magnificent Church as there was a service being held and it was packed with people. The paintings on the ceilings were incredible. A real must see! At night it is lit up and looks incredible!

Though not many people that visit the Pompeii ruins visit, they don't don't know what they are missing! The Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of the Rosary is not to be missed. The interior is something wonderful... and I've visited dozens of churches and cathedrals...More

We had a quick visit and wanted to climb the bell tower but it was being repaired, so we couldn't. There was a service when we visited, which made it even more special. The Church is beautiful and well worth a visit.

Absolutely breathtaking basilica with miraculous icon - very special if you are interested in the history of 54 day rosary novena and the story of Blessed Bartolo Longo. It certainly is "a proper church" (a previous reviewer doubted that but I genuinely think they went...More

You can take the Circumvesuviana to Pompei Scavi and then either walk 20 minutes into town or you take a taxi from the Circumvesuviana into Pompei town. I think the fare is about 10 Euro but check with the driver before... More

Suggestion: contact the church directly? The info is on their web site. I would not hesitate to write in English - many people in the area are very fluent.
