  • I am not a museum person or a church person, but I found this visit completely worthwhile. The courtyard is simply stunning. I was there in January so it must be even more amazing in the springtime...  more »

  • Beautiful cloister in the center of Naples. The tiled benches and painted walls are stunning and worth the 6 euro entry. There is a small museum and archaeological area that explains the history of the cloister.
  • This is probably the most aesthetic place in Naples and one of my favourites. It's perfect to spend the most warm hours of the day admiring the characteristics Maioliche and walking around the cloister. In the inside there's also a double language video explaining the history of Santa Chiara and the abbey. Also the museum with the old Roman church's ruins is really worthy
