  • 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.
  • Visited both the church and the religious complex. Entry fee was reasonable. Really enjoyable complex to walk around and relax in, while travelling around Napoli. Would recommend visiting!
