Wanted to visit this place on our trip last year but didn't have time, so we made an effort to go and see it this time, and what a beautiful place it is. Dating from 1325 is was originally the monastery of San Martino and...More

We visited at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon (free admission with the Naples Artecard) and spent a very pleasant couple of hours exploring the random delights in the museum, empty but beautifully painted rooms and the incredible selection of Nativities, including one huge wall to...More

Easy to get to, at the top of the Vomero hill from where there are great views. An interesting museum, with a couple of well-preserved elegant horse-drawn carriages. Lovely 'hanging' gardens along the cliffside within the complex. Well-preserved cloister. And an excellent collection of old...More

Well worth the bother of getting there, via the funicular from via Toledo. A really interesting monastery with stunning views over Naples and the Bay of Naples. The archways on the south west of the Certosa were cool and breezy, with benches that allow you...More

I was really confused about how it works in this museum. Information on the website are not actual, as some parts of exhibition which should be open were apparently closed. Without explanation, without reduced entrance fee. My children were looking forward to see the Navy...More

Slightly mixed review. On the plus side it is a beautiful location. There is a lot of restoration work underway but that shouldn’t take away from the fact that it is a remarkable building. There are many interesting things to look at as you wander...More

The place is in a state of repair and partially closed so it's not really worth visiting at the moment unless you're going to visit Castel Sant'Elmo anyway.

Agree with post above. No need for taxi in Naples as brilliant transport system especially if you stock up on the right type of pass. I took the metro Line 2 to Amadeo and 5 mins walk to the Margharita Funicular. 4 stops to... More
