Santa Chiara Church Reviews & Ratings
The garden in the center and the walking route around it are the one of the most suggestive places of Naple. Interesting to read about the life conducted in this monastery in the past. We found Monastero by luck, it looked welcoming, we tried it. And good thing we did. The host welcomed us warmly and speaks fluently in at least 3 different languages.
The monastery is really a beautiful location to visit. It has several rooms with different themes. The garden in the center and the walking route around it are the one of the most suggestive places of Naple. A very serene monastery to look around and relax in towards the centre of the city.
Incredible garden, honestly breathtaking! The museum was small but interesting, there is a small viewing room in which a 15 min video about the history of Santa Chiara is being played. Ticket prices are 4.50€ for students and 6€ for adults.

A strangely beautiful and fascinating glimpse into the mind and mastery of artists unique among their contemporaries. The sculptures, particularly the Christo Velato, show a technical mastery that has yet to be surpassed. Get there early, or book in advance, to avoid the queue.
