  • Place in my opinion undervalued and overshadowed for tourists from the nearby Castel Sant ' Elmo. the visit was pleasant but the path is poorly indicated (still I am amazed he didn't find the access to the first 43 rooms of the exhibition around the cloister, despite careful search) and I am very sorry to have found some areas inaccessible, or for waiting for restoration or electrical fault (and here I speak of the naval section)

  • Interesting visit, strolling from one room to the other. The audioguide provides little information and some rooms are closed. Nevertheless the cribs, cloister are pretty. Predict 40 min to walk to Piazza Dante and 1 h visit!

  • After paying 4 tickets of cableway and walk at least 20 minutes to get, pay 6 euros per head adults can not see nothing of what had motivated me to go up there. NOT tea they warn at the box office that: 1 the façade is covered by restoration. I understand and personally support the maintenance of cultural property. 2 because, as read on a poster, the soil is unable to endure many trots can not be entered to the chapel. 3 boats room is closed due to a failure in the electrical system. 4. THE HIGH OF HIGHS. The section of the crib is closed because the presence of a temporary exhibition requires for its surveillance on the staff, so it must be closed rooms. Ask before you enter which sections can be visited.

  • The presepe at this museum are beyond belief.. could have spent an entire afternoon admiring the detail on each figurine..and the main presepe was amazing!!
  • The building itself and marvellous view of the city are probably the most notable reasons to visit. Surprisingly there is a small nautical section displaying two old launches and a few ship models which I appreciated. The first part of the museum is dedicated to nativity scenes (cribs) - a permanent exhibition. Very strange but apparently famous for the region.
  • Beautiful views. Not expensive to get in.
  • It was a very interesting sight. The gardens offer a magnificent view of Naples.
  • Overwhelmingly beautiful church and monastic complex along with a collection and exhibition of wonderful artworks. Great panoramic view of the city as well.
