Few km close Naples and Pompeii, under the Vesuvius volcano, is possible visit an unique early Christian archaeological site, his name is Basiliche Paleocristiane di Cimitile. 

The Cimitile village is born before the roman era, with domination of Ausoni, Osci, Sunnis, Etruscan and Greek.

Cimitile archaeological site born with the Roman domination, this area was a necropolis of  Nola town and after site of Basilicas built by Meropio Ponzio  Anicio Paolino (Saint. Paolino) since 400 A.C.
