Built in the late 1500s, this gem of Italian artistic heritage was greatly influenced by the famous Raimondo de Sangro VII, Prince of San Severo, a genius of science and invention.
This place was like a mason's hall or something similar. The commissioned a bunch of artwork. it is some of the best that I have seen. The Jesus statue in marble is actually amazing. And the one on the wall with the fisherman is possibly more amazing. No pictures are allowed but it is awesome. And it's small so it won't talk you long.

Il Santuario di Sant’Antonio, elevato successivamente a basilica pontificia, è stato edificato agli inizi del secolo XVII° unitamente all’annesso convento dei frati minori riformati, dell’ordine francescano. All'inizio la struttura fu dedicata all’Immacolata Concezione, indi a San Francesco ed infine a Sant’Antonio da Padova. L'edificio si presenta in stile barocco con gli interni interamente rivestiti in marmo. La struttura, che si articola su tre navate con l’abside e le cappelle che sono state realizzate sul lato sinistro, è affiancata da un campanile abbastanza recente essendo stato edificato nel 1915. Internamente alla basilica è custodito un crocifisso, opera di frate Umile da Petralia, dalle virtù miracolistiche. Notevole dal punto di vista artistico la statua lignea rappresentante Sant’Antonio da Padova. All’interno della sacrestia trova posto un dipinto raffigurante l’apparizione di Gesù Bambino a Sant’Antonio. Interessanti gli affreschi che decorano la basilica opera di Vincenzo Severino. Di un certo interesse sia culturale e sia storico, è la biblioteca che trova posto all’interno del collegio serafico dell'attiguo convento.

Napulitanata is a concert hall dedicated to Neapolitan Music Heritage, especially to Canzone Napoletana and Tarantella. Everything comes from the need to set up a place in the heart of Naples where everyone can have full access to the great local music heritage in an experiential way, a sort of model after the Spanish Tablao or the Portuguese Case de Fados.
This is a wonderful place run by passionate, talented, warm and professional people. We went twice. The music is beautiful and the talent incredible. They have clearly put so much work into transforming this venue from an old taxi garage to a thriving music concert. The best 10 euro you will spend in Naples for an hour of music, wine, and taralli. You will meet great people and learn a lot about the city and its music. We can't wait to go back.

My guide was an extremely kind young lady and the visit was very very interesting. You'll hear the stories of young girls saved from prostitution and of a powerful corporation and you'll also see one more hidden masterpiece: a wooden altar with an amazing perspective.
Very very nice.

Touring the subterranean Miglio Sacro is one of those unique experiences which you may experience in ancient cities like Naples or Rome. Exploring this completely underground netherworld is fascinating and very informative. Great for all ages and interests. ...

Around the origin of our Catacombs much has been discussed, they were simpleburial and never were quarries or underground ways; the first note of the monumentis repeated since the death of St. Agrippino our bishop in the II century, when hisbody was buried there in a noble tomb. Many miracles the saint operated by thetomb, so it became a place of reverence and neapolitan wished to be buried in thatplace.
A wonderful glimpse into the early history of the city. The tour is offered in both English and Italian - I had to do the English version. The guide was excellent. She spoke clearly and presented all of the pertinent information about the layout and the history of the place. I walked there from downtown but only because I wanted to. There is a bus stop right in front of the church where the ticket office is located and where the tour begins. Your ticket also gets you into other Catacombs (San Gaudioso) which are worth visiting as well. Although not quite as extensive, they are unique in their own way.
