Naples: San Martino Tour with an Art Historian Guide

6. Naples: San Martino Tour with an Art Historian Guide

On the top of one of the Neapolitan hills, the Church of the Certosa di San Martino is a casket to one of the city's greatest treasures. Built in 1325 at the behest of the Duke Charles of Angiò, it was the mother church of the Order of the Certosini. After gathering with your guide outside the front of the church, enter the structure for a 2-hour guided tour. Around the cloister of the Monastery, the small cells demonstrate the need for peace and prayer sought by all monks. The great renovation of 1590 led the church of the Certosa to be one of the largest artistic construction sites in Southern Italy. Workers from Rome and from all parts of the Viceregno were charged with renewing the great church. These works lasted for about a century, with several interruptions and modifications in between. Today it is obvious that these works paid off. From the vault to the wonderful floor, each side chapel and every room is a priceless treasure. The beauty here is overwhelming from the inside out, with the city skyline looking crisp and wonderful on sunny days, and poetic and fascinating even in the rain.

App works very slowly. But in general, the internet in Naples often disappears and is not stable, even if you are on the surface and not in the subway. We simply registered on the Artecard website and took a scan there. Everything in museums is first class, and in general the same applies to transport. The only thing is that the QR code cannot be read on the subway etc - but the staff always help and let you through. In terms of price-performance ratio: very good.

I just came back from Naples where I used Artecard for 3 days. It is activated on the phone once there but you must have taken steps a few days before. It allows you to go in front of everyone for visits, which is royal. One downside: the Villa of Mysteries in Pompeii is not included with Artecard, a big disappointment.

Great choice to get around in Naples, although there are monuments such as the catacombs or underground Naples that are not worth it because you access others such as the archaeological museum, royal palace or new castle. It pays off very well

We met 2 lovely Italian ladies today and they drove and informed us for 5 hours with many stops. It was excellent and the best way to see the beautiful viewpoints in Napoli. We would recommend this experience especially in the Fiat 600.

The card was really useful and allowed us to spend 3 wonderful days in Naples without the worry of queues at museums or transport tickets, the only precaution was to activate the passes before reaching the metro due to line problems.
