  • We loved it. The cloisters, the exhibition of pelenes or the chapter hall and adjacent rooms. Not forgetting its location and views

  • Spectacular monastery with examples of art in every room. Floors, walls, finely decorated ceilings to lose your head. Too bad that various premises are closed either for restoration or for unknown reasons (some more information could be useful at the entrance). Inside is hosted an exhibition on Vesuvius very interesting. the garden in the main cloister is completely abandoned to itself, a pity. The ticket costs 6 euros but if you buy it integrated with the nearby Castel Elmo, from where you enjoy a wonderful 360-degree view of Naples) the price comes 9th (instead of 6 th6)

  • Wonderful museum with a breathtaking view over Naples and the bay. The museum, the courtyards, the church and the gardens are true splendors that require a little time to visit. What we did see of the museum before they rushed us out the door was impressive indeed. Not happy about the closing down of sections as we went while still taking in paying customers.
  • If you want to see all the museum en enjoy the view, you need maybe 1h30 to 2h. You can also enjoy a small garden. It’s a nice place.
