Great church, worth the visit. Take the guided tour and learn something new about the history of the church and the site it’s on since the early Greek colony of Neapolis.
€5 to help with the restoration work is for the tour and it goes towards the ongoing restoration.

We didn't find this place open the first time we visited so had to come a second time around. There is no detailed information available in the church about the huge number of icons, sculptures and paintings so come prepared if you want to get the most out of your visit or arrange a guide. Without either then its all a bit overwhelming.
We'll have to come back again, next time a little better prepared...

It was a nice church, not as spectacular as it looks on the photos but beautiful. There were no other tourists when we went on a Saturday morning, surely deserves more attention

I had chance to bump into this church which is being refurbished by a wonderful team of Italian guys willing to give back to the community this lost piece of grace. I do recommend their tours in this incredible jewel of architecture which those people are so strenuously trying to bring back to its primordial splendor.

My guide was an extremely kind young lady and the visit was very very interesting. You'll hear the stories of young girls saved from prostitution and of a powerful corporation and you'll also see one more hidden masterpiece: a wooden altar with an amazing perspective.
Very very nice.

Amazing experience visiting the church of SS. Filippo e Giacomo in Naples. Beautiful tour of the church, its sacristy, crypt, courtyard, and underground excavations, Done in Italian (in my case, but they also do ones in English) clearly and informatively. Superbly educated young people with great devotion (and knowledge of) to the sites. An example worthy of emulation elsewhere in Italy.

The entire Cathedral is dripping in gold. There is art from corner to corner and wall to wall. It's beautiful to walk around in there. There are different rooms with different art themes. Maybe a tour would help to better understand all the art. It depends on whether the wealth of the Catholic church bothers you or not. There's just so much art in there. You may enjoy it.

Very nice visit in a beautiful church with a mysterious altar and other furnishings that testify the existence of an ancient Silk Corporation. Out of touristic tour, I suggest this visit if you like Naples mysteries and secrets. There is also a very interesting archeological area below the church! Moreover the guys who manage the visits are the excellent tour guides
