  • Wonderful museum with a breathtaking view over Naples and the bay. The museum, the courtyards, the church and the gardens are true splendors that require a little time to visit. What we did see of the museum before they rushed us out the door was impressive indeed. Not happy about the closing down of sections as we went while still taking in paying customers.
  • If you want to see all the museum en enjoy the view, you need maybe 1h30 to 2h. You can also enjoy a small garden. It’s a nice place.
