  • The Basilica of Santa Chiara is a monumental building of worship in Naples, one of the most important and largest monastic complexes in the city. Absolutely worth a visit!

  • Pricy place - 6€ per person. Students / seniors 2.5€, but for hour walk and view of paintings and museum- I was surprised for prices. Otherwise- beautiful and place of colourfulness!!!

  • Fantastic peaceful spot to enjoy the history of this cloister. The painted tiles are very pretty and we were happily surprised to find a small museum with archeological excavations available to walk around included in the ticket (which I believe was about €5). There are toilets and a gift shop here too.
  • Great place to take a relaxing walk in a peaceful atmosphere. It should you 45-75 minutes. There is a very small library, a museum with original pieces which belong to the cloister, and some archeological findings.
