Easy to get to, at the top of the Vomero hill from where there are great views. An interesting museum, with a couple of well-preserved elegant horse-drawn carriages. Lovely 'hanging' gardens along the cliffside within the complex. Well-preserved cloister. And an excellent collection of old...More

The place is in a state of repair and partially closed so it's not really worth visiting at the moment unless you're going to visit Castel Sant'Elmo anyway.

Set high above Naples in the leafy area of Vomero, this is best accessed using one of the funiculars unless you are feeling really fit! The views are just spectacular, there's a beautiful church with an outstanding floor, and the priors quarters feature some truly...More

We entered thinking we had access to the castle, and thought what we were seeing was a nice bonus. When we found out we did not have access to the castle, we actually didn’t care as what we had seen was way worth the money,...More
