  • The tiled cloisters of the monastery with the beautiful citrus smell of the lemon trees and gardens are well worth the cost of the admission ticket. As you wander the grounds it is hard to imagine you...  more »
  • To visit in toto: The Majolica cloister, the choir of the nuns and the church. Absolutely agnifici.

  • 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
  • A fabulous walk around this cloister with a great museum within. Fun to see monks walking about, educating the visitors. A nice quiet spot within the craziness of Naples.
