  • A few words to encourage all those who want to immerse themselves in a place frozen in time, a rare beauty, among the cloisters, gardens, Baroque works, breathtaking, carriages, boats, a wonderful Church, a churchyard even nicer, a small Cemetery (Fanzago), a crib just amazing (Cuciniello) and an endless presence of details and priceless ornaments (marble and precious wood). Still a place that, alone, in any other city on the planet Earth, would that same one of metropolis to visit just for that site ... Certosa? Of course!

  • The Charterhouse is nice to take your breath away, the cloister very unusual and gorgeous. Each work alone is worth a pilgrimage but the price of the ticket (which is significantly lower than that of many museums) looks like a steal for as long as you kept the Museum: dirty, lots of closed rooms and staff paid to police sat on chairs in the corners of the room doing crossword puzzles. A surveillance system with cameras and fewer people would invest more funds and to do justice to a timeless excellence

  • Both the Charterhouse that the Museum are worth a visit, too short, but interesting places as they are indoors, do not miss the view of Naples which can be admired from this location. Council, to return to the city center, if you are walking, forget about buses and metro and take the staircase (falling of course) accessible directly from the square.

  • 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
  • Lovely walk through Vomero, great views and some interesting historical pieces.
  • Amazing place with spectacular view!
  • Worth the visit and do not forget to look out from the balcony for the stunning views.
