The city at hand. Naples seen from above

The National Archeological Museum, housed in one of the large and most fascinating monumental palazzi of Naples, is the most important arechological museum in Europe.

The museum houses archaeological materials of unique beauty and value from Pompeii and Herculaneum, and bronze statues of great prestige.

Old coins, mosaics and collections of Etruscan, Egyptian and and prehistoric art.

The Museum of San Martino, housed in the Carthusian monastery of the same name, is located on the Vomero hill and offers a unique view over the city of Naples. The museum is divided into several sections. The most typical and famous are those dedicated to Most; characteristics are known and one dedicated to crèches and carriages.

Do not miss the splendid church of the monastery, one of the best examples of Baroque art /strong> in Naples, the prior's quarters, the cloisters and the gardens.


One of the most mysterious places of Naples: Sansevero Chapel.

The Sansevero Chapel was founded in 1590 and has always been considered a treasure chest containing unique works of beauty and prestige.

It now houses 700 masterpieces and sculptures, as well as examples of anatomical machines. But the most famous and celebrated work is certainly the Veiled Christ by the young Giuseppe Sammartino, one of the greatest sculptural masterpieces of all time.

  • The Museum Complex of Santa Chiara occupies the Franciscan Citadel, as the religious complex of Santa Chiara, with its Basilica and Convent has always been called. The museum area include the Museum of the Opera, archeological excavations with the remains of the hot spring spa on which the convent was constructed, the hall of the 18th-century crèche, which contains an enchanting example of nativity scene art from the time of Ferdinando IV Bourbon.
San Francesco al Monte - Services

It has an ancient history whose roots extend into the heart of the mountain.

The Hotel San Francesco al Monte is the result of a project to rehabilitate and convert the left wing of the ancient monastery of Santa Lucia al Monte directed by the architect Luciano Raffin.

The monastery’s dates from the 16th and began with the first single cell that Friar Augustine Miglionico of the Order of Friars Minor Conventual, also known as the “Barbanti” for their flowing beards, carved in the side of the hill of San Martino, in an isolated area known as the mountain. Over time, the first cell became the Church of Saint Lucia Virgine e Martire, and a more extensive and organised religious complex grew alonside it on the side of the hill.


The project to adapt the ancient monastery skillfully preserved fascinating and artistically important areas such as the Chapel of San Giovan Giuseppe della Croce, patron saint of Ischia, the Hall of the Oven and the frescoed Refectory. You can see fragments of frescoes, ancient majolica and decorations in every corner of the hotel.

  • The third floor also houses the cell where Giovan Giuseppe della Croce spent the last 12 years of his life. Remembered for the miracle of the apricots that grew around him even during the winter, he was beatified in 1789. That same year, his cell was turned into a votive chapel and, today, it is one of the most enchanting areas of the entire hotel.
