I would not have known about this but for the suggestion of my friend Grazia, who teaches art in Napoli. The elliptical staircase alone is worth a visit. It was designed by the same architect, Sanfelice, who created the Palazzo Spagnolo in the Via Vergini....More

Chiesa di San Giovanni a Carbonara is located a bit away from the main streets and probably not one of the typical tourist attractions. The church is rather unimpressive from the outside - still, the more beautiful it is from the inside: The walls are...More
