San Fracesco di Paola & Vesuvius

October 14, 2016 Basilica Reale San Francesco di Paola, 80132 Napoli, Italy

San Fracesco di Paola church is located in the centre of Naples. You can't miss it because it's a very iconic building because of the centre dome. It looks a lot like the Pantheon.

Because it's located in the main square - tourists and locals are always walking around here. And it's also across the Royal Palace of Naples. I tried going inside but it was closed. Story of my life.

I love this main square a lot! You can also catch a glimpse of Mount Vesuvius from the side of the square. It's gorgeous! And the marina is right below which is very picturesque.   

We saw the biggest cruise ship from our view. I can't believe how massive it looked! I can't even imagine how many people they can fit inside that cruise ship! It looks like it's own city.  It's taller than most buildings in Naples! 

Maybe one day, I will try cruising a try. One day..


  1. Love the name of your blog :D
    Great photos

  2. It really does look a lot like the Pantheon! I'm sorry you didn't get to go inside. I'd be curious if the inner dome resembled the Pantheon as well.

  3. It’s so frustrating when somewhere you’ve really wanted to visit for ages is closed when you finally get there! You got some amazing photos none the less. It looks like such a beautiful place ever though I’ve never heard of it.
