The walk getting to this place was such an eye opener- we went via Vicco della Pace, a narrow alley with lots of friendly ladies beckoning me in for what, I have no idea! This was mid-day! Caravaggio is amazing- it's not cheap. The museum...More

This small octagonal church with 7 chapels is spectacular. The main attraction-on the main altar is Caravaggio's masterpiece 'Le 7 opera di Misericordia'-the 7 Acts of Mercy. The other 7 altars feature paintings by local painters who were greatly influenced by Caravaggio. It is easy...More

There isn't much to say, except that the Master is always a pleasure to look at. Interesting building with its eight-sided shape and dome. Recommended

This massive altar painting by Caravaggio occupies centre spot for all the right reasons and although there is an entry charge, its worth it to see this masterpiece. The museum occupies the upper floors and its worth a wander around but the really special experience...More

This is an opportunity to see works of art hung where they were intended to be hung rather than in an art gallery. There is more to see than the paintings - even if you are not interesting in artwork, there is the building itself...More

While the Caravaggio contained within this church is magnificent, it is required to purchase tickets to the museum above, containing a picture gallery and church vestments. The gallery is interesting, but average in quality, affording views outside that are more interesting. Perhaps only worth it...More

This chapel and small art gallery is just round the corner from the Duomo or Cathedral in Naples. The elegant, circular chapel houses what many believe is Caravaggio's greatest masterpiece. You'll be able to identify it immediately as it simply jumps out at you. The...More

Napoli is rich in religious structures; whether medieval, gothic or baroque. This chapel stands exceptionally aloe in its intimacy, beauty, quiet and the fact that it holds one of Caravaggio's masterpieces. G.
