Not much to see. Another old building in bad conditions. Nowadays it is a residential house.
Don't waste your time.

The Spanish palace is considered a national monument since 1925 and before was, without any doubt, one of the most beautiful palace of Naples. The visits do not last very long and is strongly recommanded to be here with a guided tour. The most interesting activity is to climb the stairs and see all the apartment doors with their magnificent ornaments. Unbelievably, this palace is still in use as a place where, people lives as into an ordinary building and, probably, they will never fully understand that their apartment is part of an historical monument of Naples. I know that, elsewhere, this should be a museum and treated with more respect, but not here. God please, forgives the neapolitans for having forgotten the beauty they have.

If you are going to Naples and want to visit the Archeology Musuem and spend time in an authentic Naples neighborhood, teeming with a diverse set of people and shops, this is a special place to be. The hostess will welcome you, in Italian. There is an English speaking guest in the house as well who will be glad to help you plan your day.

The reviews you see here are from people who passed by and seem to have taken a peek at this amazing structure. No need to stop there--you can comfortable stay here and take in life as Neapolitans live it.

Walk in any direction from the Palazzo and you will find many neighborhoods of interest.
The museum is a ten minute walk away as are several churches of note. But you won't feel like a tourist here because you will be surrounded by people who call this home.

A note about Naples' famous pizza. Actually its always soggy on the bottom as we found in place after place. Most places just serve pizza and short of finding upscale dining we did not easily fine better local eateries. Ask for help on this and you may do better.

I searched it out as this trip to was to do all the unusual. It is within 5 minutes from the Duomo and the heart of Naples, so really not out of the way. Encountered the market first and it was lively and authentic. So where was the Palazzo? Like so many other structures hidden behind market stalls but not necessarily a bad thing.

Massive wooden door was open and peering in to see this elegant, beautiful white and green staircase was quite a contrast to the grittiness of the market at your back.

I thought it was stunning.

The structure was impressive, but looks like it's an apartment complex now. The wooden doors were open so we were able to peek into the complex but didn't want to go into the building and disturb the residents. As other reviews mentioned, stop by if you're in the area but don't go out of your way to see it.
