  • Amazing. 10/10. I tried to buy tickets online 3 separate times and it didn’t work. I really wanted to see St. Thomas Aquinas’ room and work and I am from USA and wanted to for sure see it. However, my wife and I went in and it was €7 each to see his room, his work, his bone, and a cross he owned. Well worth the price. The actual church is free. They let you video/photo the whole time. Well worth it. 10/10. Simply amazing.
  • Further on still to the right: a big chapel with many tombs of Carafa family members. Tomb of the first catholic bishop of NYC to the right of the main altar. And much more!Old streets of Naples lined with cafes and food outlets gives this place a lovely taste of its own
