To be honest we visited this Monastery just to look at the gardens, which are very pleasant and relaxing (apart from men taking selfies with their poodles ... ).
Is it worth the 6 Euro entrance fee? Perhaps.
We came here late in the afternoon to find the attraction closed we later realised they are only open until around 2pm on a Sunday. Great area to sit in the peaceful but don't sit on the mosaics there is plenty of seating around the...More
Just a short stroll from the main pedestrian street, this quiet slice of paradise is a brilliant escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. There were no signs when we visited, to direct to the entrance, but trust Google maps and walk around...More

Peaceful cloisters in the heart of the city with beautiful Majolica columns, stunning. Added extras are the remains of Roman baths to the side of the church, a museum and one of those Nativity scenes famous in Naples. Church itself is restored since a fire...More
Having visited Naples some years ago and looking for something different, we visited here due to the good reviews.

The Santa Chiara complex in central Naples offers a quiet and picturesque refuge from the bustling streets surrounding this former monastic site. The mid-18th century renovation of the cloisters, and addition of majolica tiles, creates one of the most unique and beautiful cloisters I’ve ever...More

Hi, Naples is not a car-friendly city. Santa Chiara is in an old part of town and although the streets are not as narrow as in the Spagnoli quarter, I wouldn't advise attempting to drive in the immediate vicinity. If accessibility is an issue, hire a taxi; the driver will know the best way to get closest to it. The Metro system is excellent and the nearest station is Dante. (P.S. The Spagnoli's streets are really narrow alleys.)
