Many people may bypass this museum on the way to the church to see the Caravaggio but stay around to visit the museum as well. Is a quiet, small sized museum with a wide range of artifacts including furniture, fabrics, painting and statues from the 1600-1900s.
There is an art gallery within the precinct of some interest but the main attraction is Caravaggio's masterpiece - The Seven Acts of Mercy - in the main church. The church itself is rather a strange octagonal shape and very tall.
This is the best Caravaggio in Naples. It has the benefit of a Euro1, English, interactive, video presentation explaining the 7 acts of mercy depicted in the picture. Definitely worth the entrance fee
By pure luck my mum and I dropped in to see the Seven Acts of Mercy and Mass was just about to start. We are Catholic so stayed for the service - us, the priest and about four others. It was unforgettable. No crowds, no one with phones - just the peace and serenity of the chapel. The complainers (below)... 更多
People come to this church to see Caravaggio's Seven Acts of Mercy. The painting is incredible, although I must admit that it's slightly disappointing in the flesh because you can't get very close, so the details are not all easy to see. Don't miss the surprisingly large museum above the church, though, which has interesting paintings, documents of the purchasing... 更多
I guess timing is everything, because I didn't have any of the problems mentioned in other comments. Mid morning on a Sunday and still I had no trouble getting in, waiting or fighting crowds. Although the museum staff where I got my ticket SEEMED to speak English, I still don't understand why they directed me to the other gallery of... 更多
The top of the collection is definately a single piece of Caravaggio, but what a piece indeed. You cannot miss it if you have any attitude towards the arts, so it's totally worth it.
You get to the church by walking all the way down the main ally/street in the historic area. (Tribolanni?) On arrival you have to buy tickets from the small gift shop before going into the church We were offered audio guides from the gentleman serving who didn't speak English. Once in the church a guard checks your tickets - he... 更多
Worth a visit to see the Caravaggio but it is overpriced to get in and the staff are very grumpy. Crowded and unable to really get a good look as everyone was holding up their 'phones to take photographs instead of just standing to admire the painting.
7 euro seemed a lot at first and our arte card expired yesterday so we had to pay full price. The pinacoteca is interesting but more for baroque aficionados. You're coming here for the Caravaggio's Seven Acts of Mercy. It's beautiful and mysterious... It's a pity they don't provide any leaflet about it included in price. So we ended up... 更多
