Definitely a must when in Naples. The statue of the Cristo Velato is absolutely impressive. The whole Capella is just wonderful. Great stories around every corner.

Small place but worth the queue to see this amazing artwork. Grumpy 'guards' kept shhhhhshing the visitors but stunning sculptures.

Once there take an audio guide :you wont be able to understand and appreciate what you will see in front of you without an audio guide unless you do your own research about it prior your visit.

Admission is very reasonable, about 7 euros, much cheaper than other sites in Italy. Good restaurants nearby. Not easy to find as not well sign posted, had to use google maps! Interesting historical/cultural area of interest.

tough question. All are so different. Agree with PawPaw Slim, that for first timer Rome probably is place to start. Depending on how long you have, the high speed train from Rome can get you to both Florence and Napoli in... More
