  • 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.
