A very inspirational and holy place of pilgrimage!! A very nice half day trip from Rome where you can also see the Med and eat along the water.

Nettuno is in general not interesting, this church is no exception. I've seen 50 better churches in Italy and at least 1000 in my life more beautiful than this one. Dull.

The church is a lovely, peaceful spot. Exhibits on St. Maria Goretti are really interesting and very well maintained. The nuns in the museum/gift shop are very kind and helpful.
