Sansevero Chapel Museum

The enigmatic Sansevero Chapel is an important part of the Italian artistic heritage and is located in the historic part of Naples.

Do & See

The historic centre of Naples, with its splendid palaces and its popular and lively working-class districts, is now on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Naples also boasts an underground city, as well as its famous panoramic views. Moreover, this hospitable city is marked by contrasts and popular traditions, such as the annual miracle whereby San Gennaro's 'blood' becomes liquid in front of the eyes of his followers. Naples is famous throughout the world primarily because of pizza (which, you'll discover, only constitutes a small part of the rich local cuisine) and popular music, with famous songs such as 'O Sole Mio'.
