Sansevero Chapel Museum - Review
The Sansevero Chapel has been turned into a beautiful Museum. Home to some really amazing objects of art, the chapel itself is quite striking looking. There is a lot to see here so do make sure to plan accordingly. Located on Via Franscesco, it is quite a popular touristic site.
The sculpture of the Veiled Christ is definitely not to be missed. The sculpture is that of Jesus Christ after his Cruxification shrouded in a sheet. It is a heart-wrenching site that people from far and wide come to see. How the architecture has achieved this through a sculpture is a wonder. Besides this, there is a lot more to see as well. Statues, paintings, and the altar of the church itself are quite spectacular.
Also, visit nearby attractions which are covered in Naples itinerary 5 days.

Sansevero Chapel Museum, Naples Reviews
Tiny, tourist trap museum. Not worth the admission price and I do not know how you could spend more than 15 minutes there max. It has two veiled sculptures in a small-ish but pretty room, then you go downstairs to view a couple anatomical machines, and that's it! Other than the mandatory gift shop of course. We felt ripped off. Do not go - not worth the time or money. I don't know how it has so many good reviews...
Please please visit this place. I really believe that Naples is best discovered on foot. So just seek this place from the old town square and although you might be a little taken aback oby the small size of the place, do not lose heart. Because once you enter, you will find yourself in a room filled with the most intricate and delicate marble statues, you would've (probably) ever seen
The Veiled Christ is absolutely a must see. So happy I visited this museum. It can get busy during the summer months but so worth it. Amazing sculptures!
You really have to go there. It is a small place with some expensive price tag, but inside, some of the best executed marble statues in the world. Seriously, awesome level of sculpting. Of course, no photos inside... But still worth the visit. And btw, if you it go there for the anatomical models, then it is absolutely not worth it.
The best marble sculptures I have ever seen in my life (and I have seen many). If you've ever felt anything in front of the Pieta, you're going to be dazzled here. I advise to visit with audio guide because the explanation is very interesting, mainly due to the connection of the Count of S. Severo to the freemasonry and alchemy. It is particularly interesting to feel that the chapel is not finished when you see the different recording stages of some low reliefs.
