Of Naples' medieval chapels, the San Lorenzo is perhaps one of the most beautiful. Celebrated around the world for its exceptionally scholarly past, it was initially a basilica dating back to the 500A.D.
The courtyard of the monastery is certainly quite beautiful. The Museo De’llopera here is certainly worth seeing. The smaller chapels in within the church are built in gothic and baroque style. There is also another, smaller museum within the premises. It also happens to be in the geographic and historical center of Naples. A visit to the church and its chapels and museums is sure to be a very wonderful experience in Naples.

San Lorenzo Maggiore Reviews & Ratings
This church was the center of the civic power of Naples in the late Middle Ages to the early modern era. You can still see the six emblems of the neighborhoods of Naples onto the wall of the belltower. The basilica is a continuous surprise. a baroque facade leads into an apparently simple nave - this was a Franciscan church. Yet, each chapel and each niche contains rich sculptures, illustrious sepulchers, paintings (some of which by pupils of Giotto)... and much more! Do take your time to wander around patiently and admire all the jewels of this church.

It is in the middle of the city and if you visit the old town you should stop by and enjoy a moment of peace.
The San Lorenzo Maggiore is a nice church to visit whilst in Naples. It's grand with alcoves that are decorated with statues and paintings. The architecture of the church is very impressive with columns, arches, and decorative stone work throughout and the roof is stunning.
The big treat here is the underground city. They've excavated a Roman marketplace with some fascinating and well preserved sections. Mosaics, a hydraulic system, etc. The place feels like a secret. You buy a ticket, wander through the cloister, go down an unassuming flight of stairs, and then you are in it. We spent an hour wandering the ruins and had them to ourselves the whole time on a Wednesday afternoon. There aren't even docents down there. It was a terrific break from the chaotic streets of Naples.
Beautiful church with Roman road and shops buried beneath it. Must see!
