Going to the chapel itself took us through the little streets of Naples which was very enjoyable. The chapel itself is small but crammed with lovely sculptures but The Veiled Christ is awesome ! It's so realistic you can still see his veins pumping !...More

Unassuming Cappella on a sidestreet off a main thoroughfare. Blink and you'll miss it. Ticket booth is next door. Enter directly into the main room where the Veiled Christ is directly in the center. Oh and ahh as much as you'd like but no pictures...More

We paid 9 euros each to visit the fascinating crypt but misunderstood the lady at the kiosk and entered via the right hand side rather than hers to the left. We did not want to wait 45 minutes for a guide but missed to chance...More

This beautiful and very small chapel has an interesting featured sculpture but that's it. The guards bark at patrons not to take pictures and it's overpriced.

We had a day trip to Naples while holidaying in Sorrento. We were recommended locally to visit this museum to see the veiled Christ. I would say that seeing the veiled Christ is probably one of those "bucket list" things that you have to do...More

The centerpiece sculpture is amazing and worth a visit but this is only worth a short visit and not as exciting as some of the other amazing attractions in the city so plan your time carefully.

I had been told this was worth a visit and I agree. The carving involved in creating that wonderful creation is amazing. The rest of the statues were wonderful as well. I really loved the netting on one of them. I was sorry that no...More
