I desperately wanted to see the Carravagio but we were on a cruise and only had one day in Naples. We visted Erculano in the morning and returned to Naples in the afternoon not realising this church closed at 2.30. So did not manage to get in . Ah well a good reason to visit Naples again.

An absolute must for any Caravaggio enthusiast and a must on any visit to Naples, a city with an edge that you will either love or hate. I am of the former.

Chapel of rich young men, that were visiting ill poor peoples, some 500 years ago, and wanted a place where to pray, before their charity. The masterpiece is a painting from Caravaggio, the seven vertues, that will take your breath away

Pleasant little octagonal chapel with some interesting paintings, plus its own little gallery attached. Worth a visit on its own, but the fact that it's home to Caravaggio's Seven Acts of Mercy makes it a must visit. What's really striking about this is how well its lit - no having to move around to avoid reflections from spotlights. Not sure... More

If you like paintings by Caravaggio, then this little church should definitely be on your list. There are lots of paintings by other artists, but the main one is the Seven Acts of Mercy by Caravaggio. When we went, there weren't many people, so we were able to sit quietly and look at it.

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
