  • Complex from which you can admire a magnificent panorama. The monastery is a treasure trove of artworks, and the frescoes are stunning.

  • The certosa di San Martino is certainly one of the many places to see in beautiful Naples. The Church is richly decorated: the nave is opulent; rear rooms (sacristy and Chapter House) have walls covered with beautiful inlaid wood panelling and gilded and frescoed vaulted ceilings. The cloister is very big and beautiful but quite bare, when compared to the magnificent cloister of Santa Chiara. From one of the terraces you can enjoy a splendid view of the Gulf of Naples: this alone is worth the entrance fee. To see.

  • 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
