We had run out of a plan and suddenly we took that tour, Feli the best we could do!! It is a very important part of the religious history of Naples, and you understand a little better the Neapolitan character, the very complete audio guide and the spectacular treasure. RECOMMENDED

The treasure hold some beautiful items and the audio guide comes in a nice narrative style with anecdotes of people that are/where involved creating and caring for it.

Better than expected! Very good package. The only extra ticket I’ve paid was for Vesuvio trip.

Simply phenomenal. Absolutely to do with the audio guide. Very strong emotional experience.

Well structured and comfortable phones to listen to the whole story I highly recommend
