  • Impressive museum, carved stone sculptures & the church are incredible from an artistic perspective. 6 euro cost well worth it at entrance, good to spend a few hours before heading to Castel Elmo...

  • Make sure you visit this place. It's wonderful and only 6 Euros! Take a funicular up to Vomero and spend the day there! The Certosa is so beautiful and there is so much to see. We didn't get to see...

  • The church is a Baroque marvel. There is so much to see, the quality and the quantity of details is simply overwhelming. Visitors can go very close to the artwork (watch, take photos but PLEASE do not touch anything!) and see many rooms that elsewhere are not open to the public. If one loves Baroque arts, that's a must see.
  • Beautiful place inside and out. Lots to see, loads if rooms and chapels open to visit. frescos, lots of gold, and STUNNING views over bay of Naples. Best views in town. Entry fee only €6 and worth every cent!
