    it needs a higher rating
    There are no words to express this Museum. You should be prepared for breathtaking workmanship. You are best to go with a tour, be patient and if anything make this top of your list- you only get 20 minutes, so ask the guide to tell you a bit about it outside so you can take as much as you can in while inside.

    Extremely impressive, wonderful museum
    This place was an absolute shocker to me, because I hadn’t really seen it in any travel guides. The sheer amount of art, architecture, sculptures, history and beautiful views of the city and surrounding scenery absolutely blew me away. Although I’d hate to lose the peacefulness of almost having this whole museum to myself and a few others, I think that this attraction should be up there on the top places to go in Naples. Definitely one of the best uses of 7 euros so far! Absolutely would go back again, this time for a longer period.

    Worth the 1/2 hour to tour
    A private chapel, it doesn't take long to visit (20-30 minutes) but I recommend getting the audio guide to understand and appreciate the works of art. It's a "must" to pre-book the timed ticket during any busy season. Going late in the day gets you more time as we chose the last available time slot of the day and it wasn't especially crowded.

    Get the audioguide
    An amazing collection of sculptures. I would recommend the audioguide which gives the historical and religious context to the works as well as highlighting features of the sculptures to look for. However, the ticket is a bit expensive for its size and how crowded it is.

    Beautiful!
    Beautiful but very small museum. It is only one room which you enter through and there you see the magnificent sculpture. I understand why but it was such a shame that no photos can be taken. You really won’t need longer than 15-20 minutes in here.

    For Art lovers
    Really nice museum/church/chapel depending on what you want to call it. Lots of art and beautiful architecture to the building, not a very big space so you can easily see this in under an hour. Located on heart of a Naples and easy to get to.

    Stunning
    The Sansevero Chapel is incredibly beautiful. The Cristo Velato sculpture is truly mindblowing, but this tiny space is also festooned with many other interesting artworks and curiosities. It is worth getting the audio guide to get the most out of your visit.

    Wonderful
    Truly awesome veiled Christ carving and all the exhibits worth seeing. I would advise you book online for the €10 before you go and pick your time slot to beat the queues. Quite hard to find but a true gem. Brilliant masterpiece

    So touching!
    We had reserved tickets ahead of time with an audio-guide. It was worth it to skip the line. The audio-guide was great, as we could learn about the veiled Christ, but also the other paintings and sculptures in the Chapel. Its a quick visit depending on how much you listen to the audio-guide. You can do a good visit in about 1 hr I would say. It is beautiful and and must in Naples.

    Totally stunning
    At the moment, you can only get timed tickets online. Many tourists arrived at the ticket office to find that out!! No photos inside and they are very strict about that. Inside is quite small so only a certain number is allowed in at any one time. Most come to see the Veiled Christ- it is stunning and you have to marvel as to how the sculptor did it. Well worth seeing.

This place is hard to find even with a map and there are hardly any signs for direction. Even when you do find the place, then there is the rude awakening that reservations ARE required. If you are just a casual tourist, not a connoisseur willing to set aside your schedule to be here at a specific time just to view the artwork, you are better off spending your time and money somewhere else.

Beautiful Chapel. A must see. However if you pull out your phone they chastise you thinking you’re taking pictures of the works.

Amazing statues and art, the Veiled Christ is like nothing I have ever seen. There are fascinating life bodies too that were an extra surprise!

Book your ticket online on the time slot you wish to visit. There are limited slots, and usually, they sell out.
The church is tiny. It takes 15 minutes to visit.
The highlight of the church is the veiled christ, which is a masterpiece.
The church also is decorated with beautiful sculptures.
Videos and photos are prohibited inside the church.

It seems like a beautiful place, it's a shame I couldn't get in! The number of visitors is controlled, hence there are daily ticket limits. However, it's necessary to buy tickets in advance. I visited on a Friday and the earliest available ticket was for the following Monday.

Place is worth seeing, no doubt.

But at EUR 10.- for 15 minutes to see a chapel (in size) it is a rip off. Especially considering that the audio-guide is an additional EUR 3.50.

That's why only 3 stars.
