  • I was visiting this monument Needless to dwell on historical and artistic importance. My average rating depends on a path unclear (being grande), no lights or in some cases lights malfunctioning and rubbish bins almost absent, many walls and facades in a poor state of repair. Recommend visiting on a sunny day to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

  • A monumental complex to visit for its structure for works inside (paintings, frescoes, Hall of boats, cars ...). Inside one of the most beautiful cribs in Naples with its collections. The view of the Bay then is postcard. Stop not to be missed

  • The certosa di San Martino is one of the monuments that you can't see in Naples. Located in the Vomero hill represents one of the most beautiful religious buildings in Naples. The location and the wonderful workmanship make it one of the most fascinating and beautiful in Naples with my family we had the pleasure d visit it just opened ... before 9 am and it was great to visit ... from the area of the ancient Nativity Church itself ... pretty cool. Did you come up with the Metro line 1 from the train station 10 minutes walk and then stop vanvitelli using also the great escalator.

  • Great views, the open exhibits were of the nativity scenes and the royal navy. €6 entry
  • Beautiful craftsmanship in the church and fantastic views. Otherwise like many Italian museums parts might / will be randomly closed.
  • This monastery has fantastic panoramic views of Naples as well as glorious painted ceilings in the chapel.
  • Lots of old historic things to see and appreciate. Location is a 10 minute walk from the top of the Vomero-Montesanto funicular, so it's easy to get to but requires some walking. I was disappointed in how many rooms were closed to the public, buy then I was there in May and you might have better luck in a heavier touristy month.
  • The nicest view of the Med I have ever seen. Absolutly breathtaking. The collection and the buildings are not bad either
