Duomo di Napoli, Naples

4.4
Completed in the 14th century, Duomo di Napoli was built on the foundation of two palaeo-Christian basilicas, traces of which can still be seen today. When you visit this Catholic cathedral, be sure to look for the fourth-century mosaics. The grand Royal Chapel of the Treasure of San Gennaro contains famous frescoes by Domenichino and a reliquary by 14th-century French masters. Those of a squeamish disposition should skip the caskets of human bones. The cathedral operates a strictly modest dress code.

  • There are so many beautiful churches in Naples that the Cathedral you can safely skip if you don't have much time left ...

  • Revenue and after touring for the Cathedral visit the chapel of San Gennaro and while you are there make sure to read his interesting story.

  • Not for nothing is the duomo, coming to Naples we couldn't not make a stop here. There is no guide service also having witnessed the explanation of a private guide in a group, I highly recommend you find a guide (if not one person at least one detailed paper version) for this church because it is rich in history and anecdotes that are not alone.

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.
