You will feel like in Spain or Portugal for the amount of beautiful ceramic or azulejos ! It is a must see for Central Naples tours: the whole town has improved massively and I am happy tourism is booming at present.

The cloisters are the shining jewel of this complex. Very interesting tile art, with zero references to Biblical stories--only scenes of "real life" (and maybe some fantasy too) from the outside. Super interesting, considering this was for the nuns who were not allowed to go...More

The painted columns are amazing. So beautiful. Also the wall paintings with the bible stories. The trees are beautiful. It was raining and yet I was elated.

We visited on a drizzly morning, but even the rain couldn't mask the utter amazingness of the cloister. The museum is fascinating, too - and the loos are spotless! Don't miss the illuminated manuscripts in the library.

Impressive building in the heart of Naples. The cloisters with the majolica tiles are really something. Well worth a visit.

We saw photos of Santa Chiara and sought it out to visit. Not too pricey (€6 each) but a lovely point of stillness in the bustle of Naples. Beautiful seats with tiles on (sadly you can't sit there any more in an attempt to protect...More

Wow! This must be among the most spectacular underground / subway stations in the world! Be careful! We arrived here one afternoon as destination rather than point of departure. While gazing upwards at the spectacular roof we nearly forgot that we were coming to the...More

An impressive complex, it features a beautiful Gothic church which was unfortunately bombed during WWII. Thus the interior presents a few salvaged altars and tombs all of exquisite quality as the church used to be very important throughout history. The highlight though is the incredible...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... More
