The Church was among the most breathtakingly beautiful that we have seen in all of Italy. No expense spared, intricate marbles, frescos, floors, you name it. The museum is also a must see, a collection of elaborate nativity displays like nothing you have ever seen. Tons of interesting displays of art and Naples history and culture. Spectacular views of the entire Bay of Napoli. Not to be missed. Located close to the Castle, which is also not to be missed.

The most beutiful panorama view I ever have seen. Originally it costs money to visit the top but since we where a school class we got it for free. Even if you have to pay I recomend you to go to the top because the view is amazing. Make sure to visit in good weather and in sunset its amazing.

The monastery sits on a high hill overlooking the city. It is in the shadow of the nearby Castell Sant’Elmo. There are magnificent views from the monastery, as well as some wonderful museum exhibits.

The church was incredible in size and so full of beautiful decoration. We enjoyed the monk's graveyard and the scull sculptures. disappointed that the gardens were shut as we got to them as we were late on our visit. The climb to get the view over Naples was worth every step. Shame we had to rush the last part of our visit as the museum had lots of interesting things on display, especially the street scene of Naples and figures going to heaven.

Not the best of either, but the views and church were interesting. The art collection was a little disappointing.

Easy to access by taking the funicular railway from Montesanto station. It’s only a ten minute walk from Morghen and worth visiting. The highlight is definitely the Presepe Cuciniello which is stunning.
The main courtyard has seen better days, but the views of the bay of Naples are fantastic.

After long climb up the stairs thowards Castle of Sant Elmo I realized I have plenty of time and I decided to just see how much is the museum ticket. When entering the security guard said its free the day. So I decided why not must be a sign. It was well worth it. There were caridges, boats, ship models weapons and pieces of art that is so wowee to see. I am fan of the historic artifacts and being able to see the swords, pistols and so many other pieces of history gave me big pleasure. The chapels that are also part of the museum were majestic, all the paintings, altars, the yard there is its all just so grand. There was rain and it made the views out of the windows and from the balcony so beautiful. If I had more time I would just have enjoyed sitting outside in the yard. It is a must see place.

This place was not too big, but has a great selection of artefacts in the museum. The ceilings are to die for in the main church building. Even has a maritime section with a couple of boats and models size ones too.

Nice little finish coming down from the Castel Sant'Elmo!

The best way to get to this gem, perched on, literally, a small urban mountain, is by cablecar (funiculare). Once you're up there it's already a treat to have the whole of Naples, Gulf and all, at your feet. The Certosa complex then is a wonder to experience. The monastery itself is a retreat of tranquillity. But the interior of the several halls behind the chapel are something else. There is so much art and artefact that you would need several hours to take them in properly. And even if you're not an art buff, you can allow yourself to be impressed by the quality and the concentration of works under one roof. After you're done, make sure to descend the 'mountain' on foot using the old stairs that take you down to not far from where you came from.
