    The complex has suffered heavy bombing during the second world war that has virtually destroyed the Church. On this occasion was reconstructed on the basis of the original project (Gothic) leaving aside the Baroque restoration that had undergone in ' 600.

    Beautiful place, full of history and art. The museum is very interesting and a lot of information in English is available. The ancient greek / roman excavations are valuable too and should be mentioned.

    Went in hoping to see the main church but it was closed on the day. Still, an impressive building.

    Interesting, maybe even beautiful. But the thing I had liked mostly was excavated Roman baths.

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.
