I would not have known about this but for the suggestion of my friend Grazia, who teaches art in Napoli. The elliptical staircase alone is worth a visit. It was designed by the same architect, Sanfelice, who created the Palazzo Spagnolo in the Via Vergini....More

Chiesa di San Giovanni a Carbonara is a lovely place. It is several hundred years old and it contains some really magnificent art works. It is a site you should visit if you are in the area.
