So much to see - lovely frescoes all around, immaculate tiled columns, a great museum of artifacts. But be warned, do not sit on the tiles, or even put your belongings down on them! Well, you can understand why!

In the middle of noisy, busy Naples, this is an oasis of calm and beauty. The cloister is green, filled with beautiful hand painted tiles. Should definitely be included in any visit to Naples.
