What is it? Behind the restored Gothic basilica of the same name, you’ll find this network of cloisters belonging to the closed order of Santa Chiara. Bombed by the Allies during the Second World War, the vast complex’s walkways are lined with blossoming orange trees and covered in bright majolica tiles depicting typical 18th-century Neapolitan scenes.
Why go? Smack bang in the city’s chaotic centre, the ornately decorated cloisters provide a much-needed slice of calm after a long day avoiding mopeds and three-wheeler Piaggio Apes.
