Beautiful interior and unbelievable sculptures. The reclining sculpture of the shrouded Christ is truly incredible and the sculpture is so fine that the shroud appears transparent. Seven euros to enter the church was a little expensive. Not as much to see as expected. Other sites...More

A very small and "intimate" setting for a museum. The Museum is extremely busy, as the famous marble sculpture "Veiled Christ", by Giuseppe Sanmartino is here. There are other art pieces to be seen, especially downstairs you can find "bodies" with only the veins remaining,...More

The veiled Christ is one one the most beautiful statues I have ever seen in my life. This is a must in Naples

Set in a narrow street to the right of Chiesa di San Domenico Maggiore very easily missed. But do try to visit. The box office is next door. The chapel is quite small but what greets you inside is truly memorable. In the centre lies...More

Everything the guide books say and more. No pictures allowed. I usually don’t “buy the book,”but worth it here.

An absolute must see. The Veiled Christ is worth traveling to Naples in itself. The tape (5 € for 2) is worth it. Helps understanding the creation context greatly.

Must see without any excuses. Get a guide or buy a guide book before (8Euro in the nearby bookshop).

In the comparison with all local churches this one is tiny. But you will not see such sculptures somewhere else! It’s touching for sure. If you don’t like long lines and overcrowded spaces - first half of the day work better. Tickets are 7 Euro...More

Although the chapel is charming the main attraction of the site is none other of the statue "The veiled truth" on the tomb monument in the center of the chapel. There are are other scluptures around the walls but not as impressive as this. It...More

tough question. All are so different. Agree with PawPaw Slim, that for first timer Rome probably is place to start. Depending on how long you have, the high speed train from Rome can get you to both Florence and Napoli in... More

To me, Napoli is the truest expression of how fun Italy can be, how great the food is over here, and how open and friendly the local residents are. However, the cilty can be a bit startling for many people. Rome would... More
