All the reviews rave about the Caravaggio paintings, and I'm going to as well. They are well-restored, well-lit, easy to see, and just absolutely stunning. The rest of the art work is interesting if mostly religious daubes. I would bypass several art museums to see the Caravaggios; I'm really glad to have seen these. The courtyard is very nice as...

Napoli has to be lived walking along Spaccanapoli. The alley, the noises, the light reduced by high palaces are a unique atmosphere. Spaccanapoli is the old road axis of Napoli of the kings of Anjou, starting from the Angevin royal palace, the seat of administration of justice in Naples for centuries. Along the way the unfortunates who were to assist... More

We went here to see the Caravaggio painting, seven acts of mercy which was painted during Caravaggio's stay in Napoli. Absolutely fantastic. But we also enjoyed the museum, Reading about the history of the Place. Cannot recommend a visit more, will stay with you for the rest of your life.

In a country where many works can be seen in free-access Churches, I debated whether to visit Pio Monte della Misericoria to see Caravaggio's famous work, The Seven Acts of Mercy, for a rather fitting Seven Euros (a discount exists for Students and Seniors). Notwithstanding the other impressive works in the Church and the extensive collection in numerous rooms on... More

From the narrow Via Tribunali you would not believe what hides behind the door at Pio Monte della Misericordia. The entrance gives way to a large open quad that is unlike the closeness of the street outside. The church hosts the Carravaggio, the Seven Acts of Mercy. You can see it over the altar and also from the window of... More

We were there in the middle of the day on a Saturday and there was no line and very few people inside. The light on this master piece is amazing so you can appreciate it. We first went into the main church to view it (where there is seating to be able to sit for a period to enjoy it).... More

If you like Caravaggio you must see this place...His "Sette opere della misericordia" in this hidden palace in the storic centre of Naples...is outrageous. Do not miss the view on this materpiece from one of the museum's rooms in the first floor....

We visited here to see the Caravaggio called the Seven Acts of Mercy, we were not disappointed and spent much time viewing the work The Gallery upstairs is not of very high quality and is up 59 steps, I found the lift later.

Art and beauty is very strongly a matter of personal opinion and taste. Personally I find Caravaggio's Flagellation of Christ in the Capodimonte and the way it is hung as the highlight of the gallery there incredibly powerful and more deeply affecting than this Caravaggio. However, any chance to see a Caravaggio in front of you from circa 1607 is... More

This church on the Via Tribunali houses the famous Caravaggio's 'Seven Works of Mercy'. This, in itself, makes this place unmissable but it also has a small museum with works by Luca Giordano, Vaccaro and many others. Plan your visit carefully because it is closed on Wednesdays.
