  • He is always fascinated by the beauty; If then is explained in a simple, engaging and precise (and here we thank our guide MariaElena-I hope I remember it well-) the whole thing is much more enjoyable

  • I visited the Museum a few days ago after buying a beautiful Rosary of San Gennaro to give it. Being non-believer I was skeptical to visit the Museum, but in the end I was very surprised by the beauty of the treasures inside. A clear example of Neapolitan art. They are very ancient treasures (1500) in which took part to presents also some characters belonging to the family of Napoleon Bonaparte. See why it's worth. It costs a little bit.

  • The Museum is not very large and while hosting a small number of pieces the artistic value of the works is top notch! There are statues and vestments in gold, silver and precious stones, some donated to the Holy Royal and Imperial families over the centuries in Europe. Out of all the statue of St Michael the Archangel, the worlds largest silver statue on a human scale, the MITRE and San Gennaro, the world's largest jewel of inestimable value! Altogether the Treasury exceeds that of the Queen of England and the Czars of Russia ... not to be missed!

  • I'm a local, living in a little town distant a few km from Naples and this Musem. I'm 44 years old and i did feel ashamed for viewing such a beauty only after so much time. The treasure keeped in this Museum is amazing and San Gennaro is one of the most iconic figure of Naples. After my visit i started to understand better why. I suggest to visist the museum with a guide, for me maked a huge difference. Without a guide, may be you don't fully understand the meaning of the exposed masterpieces that melt with the mystery and glory of this Saint.
  • very interesting tour!amazing jewels and the guide Fabio has been very very nice and funny! thank you!
  • The chapel contains a remarkable array of frescoes, paintings and sculpture from the 17th century.
  • Very nice museum! A home to the amazing jewls and diamonds, made by the masters of Napoli through the centuries and donated to the church and San Gennaro, protector of the city! Inside you can find a crown (Mitra di San Gennaro) that has more than 3.000 diamonds, rubins and other jewls! Nice experience for only 5e ticket fee!
  • Small museum with artifacts out of the treasury of San Gennaro.

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.
