Naples: San Martino Tour with an Art Historian Guide

4. 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.

What people are saying about Certosa di San Martino

I liked everything very much. An unforgettable experience. An excellent audio guide. Convenient to get there by bus and train. In the beginning, the construction crane, which hangs over Pompeii, interfered with the atmosphere, but at the end of the excursion, it was he who suggested that even after 2000 years , life on the slopes of Vesuvius continues.

If you intend to use the ticket extensively (for example, I was in Pompeii, Herculaneum, Paestum - including the train - and in the Archaeological Museum of Naples) it is definitely worth it, so I can only recommend it.

It is a very good saving option and it makes it easier for you not to have to buy tickets or tickets, POMPEII and HERCULANO for free and all the transport of metro, bus, discount in museums etc ...

Pompei was very interesting, the catacombs of San Gennaro were also impressive! With the ARTEcard we could use the metro and all trains, that was very practical!

Pass very suitable for means of transport (train, bus, metro) plus entry to museums or sites. economical and practical
