S. Salvatore (Basilica of St Saviour)

Recommended
Built between the 7C and 8C by monks from the east and altered in the 9C, this basilica was one of the first Christian churches in Italy. Its architecture reflects a successful merging of Classic and Eastern styles, an original combination which has led to the building being declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011. The interior is striking for its simple elegance and its many Roman features, such as the columns, which have been re-used in the church's construction.
