I was told the stories behind the pieces by a friend, would have been better if I had looked into this further before going. Easy to buy tickets on the day, wasn't over crowded. Tucked away so took a few minuets to find, using Google maps. Well worth a visit!

Very interesting combination of art and chapel, unexpected display underground. Beautiful paintings and amazing sculptures, incredible Cristo velato. Bit expensive and you cannot take any photos.

The museum was down one of the many skinny streets in Naples - there was a small entry fee and to our surprise once again no queues! There were only about 10 people looking at the veiled Christ which was so beautiful it gave goosebumps! The other marble statues were equally as amazing the craftsmanship quite unbelievable - you were... More

Worth visit. Got tickets fast and the place wasn't overcrowded at afternoon. The Veiled christ was stunning and the roof painting was spectacular.

This place is a must see in Naples. It is just a small chapel hidden away in the street but when you get inside the sculpture is incredible. The veiled Christ in particular is worth the entrance fee! Definitely make a little time to see this incredible place!

If you with to understand the eclectic spirit of Naples you cannot miss the Cappella Sansevero. A sofisticated game of illusions and allusions that will fashinate you.

Well worth the visit - seeing the statue is one of those moments where the hairs stand up on the back of your neck; the other marble work and painted ceilings are also breath taking, not to mention the macabre anatomical figures on lower floor. Go .... Don't hesitate

It's a small chapel whose interior is meticulously designed and filled with art masterpieces, with the purpose of being a mausoleum for the Prince of Sansevero's family. It is kept almost entirely in it's original state and shows a number of statues of which a few are remarkable for their depiction of soft material. In the basement there are two... More
