Where to stay in Naples

Naples' lodging options include everything from turn-of-the-century historical mansions to hip boutique hotels. For a five-star experience in the heart of town, book a centrally located luxury hotel. Less expensive but just as comfortable, traditional inns just outside the central area offer peaceful comfort, private parking, and private outdoor space ideal for quiet dinners and small parties. If you are looking for a less urban experience and prefer to stay in a leafy neighborhood, consider the city's residential suburbs.

  • Interesting little church. Beautiful decorations.
  • A true artistic gem amongst the many found in Naples that houses: The uniquely impressive and monumental Tomb of King Ladislaus of Durazzo (1414-28), the Cappella di Somma (mid 16th cent.), Cappella Caracciolo del Vico (15th cent.) and the Cappella Caracciolo del Sol (1441) along with a wide array of other great works of art.
  • One of the many churches in Naples (Naples and the city with the highest number of churches in the world) but one of the most beautiful and least known Miraflores ... an art museum between altars and works just as wonderful. Not to be missed. You will find a table of Vasari, is the sepulchral monument of King Ladislaus and chapels of Caracciolo. Gorgeous

  • Is located in via Carbonara in Naples, which in ancient Greek and medieval collected water flows from the hills of vomero and Capodimonte, with water running off debris that before ending up in the sea were burnt. Under the angioinians of branch of Durres were ceded land to the Royal family and on these grounds were built and the Church and Augustinian convent. In this place it was decided to erect a monument to the young King died in the conquest of Italy, the Papal States, including, for which he was excommunicated. The decision was made by her sister and Queen Joan II, French workers erected the monument in the transept of the Church in the Gothic style, in the top of the monument an equestrian statue of the Warrior King Ladislaus Durazxo branch of the family. King and Queen are represented as well as strength, temperance at the base of the monument. Behind it in the apse the family of Sergianni Caracciolo, the Queen's lover, killed by conspirators in Castel Capuano succeeded after several years building a second monument celebrant Sergianni del sole and a magnificent chapel with frescoes and original floor tiles with Catalan Ragole for Neapolitans. Yet the powerful family under the Doagnoli can build another monument in the transept area with various characters that adds over the centuries to come given the frequent visits with the literati and the powerful at the time. Other families of officials and bankers fill chapels with gravestones. From street level you enter the Church through the magnificent grand staircase of San Felice in crab claws, unfortunately behind Augustinian Convent is in total disrepair, suggesting a recovery for this undeveloped area so full of history and art.

  • The Church was built between 1343 and 1418 to become "pantheon" of the last Angevin Kings.
