Seeing a work of extraordinary craftsmanship and beauty like the treasure of San Gennaro is not an everyday thing. Entering the "museum" one is breathless to see so much beauty.

Inestimable works of unparalleled beauty. Here you can see the genius and mastery of those who, through meticulous work, give life to masterpieces that last over time

We didn't take much advantage of our Naples Pass due to personal reasons and therefore lost some money but in itself it works very well.

In Naples everything is amazing, the chapels and the treasure of San Gennaro are very interesting, the staff very helpful.

Really nice small museum. Worth visiting when seeing the cathedral.
