Stunning basilica
Sep 2020 • Couples
Located in the Piazza Del Plebiscito, it is a a stunning building with excellent acoustics. We visited for a Sunday Mass and the layout was very COVID-19 safe. Well worth visiting if near the piazza or Castel Nuovo.

Worth a look when nearby

Located in Piazza del Plebiscito, the main square of Napoli, San Francesco di Paola contains a number of statues and chapels while its shape and grandeur harkens Rome's Pantheon. Good for a quick visit.

Looks like the Pantheon
Oct 2019
San Francesco di Paola that looks like the Pantheon is in the west of Piazza del Plebiscito directly across from Palazzo Reale. It is a prominent church dedicated to Saint Francis of Paola.

Nice structure
Aug 2019
San Francesco di Paola is an impressive church of neo-classical style built in the 19th century. This huge Basilica reminds me of the Pantheon in Rome. It locates at Piazza del Plebiscite and worth to have a look inside.

Impressive
Aug 2019 • Family
The Church sits at one end of Piazza del Plebiscite, which is huge and empty, giving the Church a sort of commanding position. The Church is about 200 years old. It has a large high rise dome. The front part has a portico with pretty columns and pillars. The design reminds me of the Pantheon in Rome. The interior is circular in shape and quite pretty too, but not lavishly decorated. There are a number of charming artistic works, some of which are older than the Church. A visit is recommended.

the outside view is sufficient
May 2019 • Couples
Imposing building on a lively square, but admiring it from the outside is sufficient since there really is not that much to see on the inside. just a photo-stop

This huge Basilica dominates the Piazza Plebiscito, the biggest square in the city.
It reminds of St Peter Basilica in Rome in terms of big arched collonade in front of it, and also to Parteon in Rome, in terms of the design of the building itself, so it's quite interesting to see.

Large 19th Century Church
May 2019 • Couples
This started out as a tribute to Napoleon but as he was dispatched it was converted to a church and dedicated to Saint Francis de Paola and completed in 1816. It sits at the west side of the Piazza de Plabiscito in Naples (main square) and although large is not that impressive.
