The sculpture in this church is breathtaking - bright, elaborate and theatrical. Go in the week, and you may find yourself alone, admiring the tombs, pictures and tiling.

One of the highlights of our trip: beautiful and very special. Go up ALL stairs and don't stop halfway. Interior is unique with splendid and unique statues and graves. ADD to your schedule! Don't miss.

This is one of my favourite churches in Naples. A descendant of the noble family who built it is often there in his role with the conservation/historic society. He will run informal tours and be available to answer questions. He is not always there, but if he is, you're in for a treat. If he's not, read up on the... More

It must have been a wonderful church. Even now, having been rebuild after WW2, it is worth a visit. Having said that, after having seen numerous churches in Naples during my stay, it would not be on top of my list. As it is only a short walk from the archeological museum and should you have spare time do visit... More

I did like the atmosphere of the church, in the morning there were not many people, so I could enjoy it. Also there was an exposition of the life of one Italian actor.

Beautiful little chapel this.Not good to get to if you have walking problems as very steep steps but once inside it is well worth the climb.There is a smashing round chapel here,the door is under the altar.Above is a lovely monument to King Ladislas.

this church has a magnificent late gothic tomb, floors are covered with majolica, the staircases leading to the main enntrance are a true symbol of harmony and baroque atmosphere. Not to be missed

Almost across the street from our hotel, this medieval complex is not t be missed. Renaissance tombs for two of the Caracciolo are reminiscent of the Medici tombs by Michelangelo in Florence (albeit without the spectacular renaissance architectural elements). But not to be missed are the much earlier tombs and altars that adorn this church, including two extensive though not... More
