  • Pricy place - 6€ per person. Students / seniors 2.5€, but for hour walk and view of paintings and museum- I was surprised for prices. Otherwise- beautiful and place of colourfulness!!!

  • Gorgeous gardens, worth taking a guided tour to learn more about the history! We didn’t wait in a long line to get tickets (€6 per person), and the tour guide was super friendly. Worth visiting for a moment of peace while in Napoli!
  • Very nice and calm place. Comes as a great break from the busy streets. The museum part was insightful. Wish we could see more rooms from the actual convent.
