    St-Thomas Aquinus cell
    We booked this visit for its history. For a small fee, we booked the visit of the museum as well, and of the St-Thomas Acquinus room. The church was nice, and the museum was cool with the sarcophagus. It was very impressive. But the best was the St-Thomas Acquinas room, where such an important event took place. With the long tour and visit of the church, you can calculate 1:30 minutes.

    Interesting, Expensive Historical Tour
    Famous Dominican church in the heart of historical Naples. You can enter the church itself for free. To see the interesting stuff - Thomas Aquinas’s “bone”, his cell, the coffins of various dignitaries, the burial place of the 1st Bishop of New York (who never got to the Big Apple) , various tatty ancient costs and hats - you have to pay a fair whack - €10. But you do get to visit the crypt and, if you’re lucky, get it all to yourself along with a (disinterested) guide. Overpriced, but I enjoyed the quiet and the history…

We only visited the church which is free. It features a dramatic altar with an elaborate gold detailed organ. There are additional charges for visiting the sacristy.

Guidance was great. It was one of the most interesting parts of my trip to Naples. I’d highly recommend it. Glad to have seen Aquinas’ cell, the Carafa crypt and the burial site.

The guide was absolutely, she apologised for her English but it was absolutely fine and she was so friendly and helpful, she’s a credit to this place.

The ticket is totally worth the price, you get a behind the scenes tour with many fascinating artefacts and history, so glad our hotel recommended this.

Impressive structure both inside and out, and the tour was well worth it. The guide was extremely polite and knowledgeable. It’s an insight into one of the many layers of the city that is really worth the visit

An unexpected beautiful hidden gem in Naples with stunning architecture and artwork. Possibly the most impressive church in the area apart from the Duomo. Would highly recommend visiting.

We found this at the end of the day sightseeing and so we were quite weary.  However, so pleased we managed to fit this in at the end of the day.  We walked from the University train station which found us in the middle of a large piazza area with lots of lovely restaurants even on a Sunday which was a surprise.

The entrance to the cathedral is actually across the piazza at the left hand corner up a flight of steep steps.

We were surprised as the entrance was quite simple.

However, once we got in the cathedral was quite stunning.  We discreetly had a look around the church and kept quiet to avoid disturbing people who were praying as it was Sunday after all.

Stunning windows which sent prism effects across the church with the sun shining through and also the crystal chandeliers.   Looked stunning with one of the statues of Christ lit up in rainbow colours.  There is a lot of art on display from across several centuries which is very impressive.

Also stayed for a few moments of private prayer which was lovely and peaceful.  The church ask for donations which are so needed especially these days.

Definitely worth a few stops on the train and a 10 minute walk to get here to see this stunning church.

There is also a museum and crypt here, but we ran out of time to see everything.  At least it leaves us something to see next time. Also worth having a look at the gothic spire in the piazza.
