Why were there only six people to see the Vasari ceiling on the morning we visited? We were blown away. Where is the booklet to explain the symbols?

We found this quite by chance taking a shortcut to Spaccanapoli. We having been coming to Naples for 10 years or more and had never noticed it. The church itself is well worth a visit, but the highlight has to be the side chapel completely covered in frescos by Vasari, and artist whose work is very rarely seen and who... More

I stumbled upon this church while walking near the center of town, and I am glad I did. It was quite beautiful and filled with frescoes and artwork throughout. Each side of the church appears to be divided into little chapels, each containing lovely displays and artwork. I spoke with a gentleman while visiting there - I believe he was... More

We found this church and sacristi-chapel the most beautiful treasure in Napels. We spend more than an hour to admire the ceiling with its many frescoes from Vasari, also the inlayed wooden wall panels and paper mache? statues; even the real and imitation window (trompe d'oeil) were interesting. We were allowed to make as many pictures as we liked since... More

It used to be hard to get into this church, but it seems now to have regular hours. The Vasari frescoes in the sacristy and the Mazzuoli terracottas are show stoppers.

The most beautiful thing in this church were the 'Affreschi del Vasari', which are apparently unknown by most of Naples! The main part of the church is pretty enough - there is a group of terracotta sculptures which are very impressive, but follow the signs to 'Vasari' and you come to the most beautiful little chapel covered in frescoes and...
