  • Definitely a positive review; A well maintained and full of very interesting and very different works both stylistic and technical, which historian. Honest price, considering the amount and importance of the works. Well-groomed even outsiders. Only criticisms, the poor lighting in some theaters and pity that some areas are open only in defined schedules

  • Naples absolutely worth visiting. The Certosa San Martino we have been helped in the visit by students of "Caruso" which they explained exhaustively every section.

  • In addition to the artistic interest of spaces and the works preserved in this chartreuse, the panorama of the Bay from the gardens under the grapevines is enchanting.

  • 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
