For art accompanied by fabulous city views, head up to the hilltop Vomero neighborhood and the vast 14th-century monastery of San Martino. The complex incorporates a glorious Baroque church decorated with intricate marble intarsia work, an art gallery with some fascinating early images of Naples, the sunny, wide-open Chiostro Grande and peaceful terraced gardens with unparalleled vistas over Naples and beyond. Don’t miss the collection of antique presepi (nativity scenes).
