The Treasure of San Gennaro is composed of art works and donations collected in seven centuries of Popes, Kings, Emperors, famous and ordinary people, kept in a museum in Naples, Italy. According to studies done by a pool of experts who have analyzed all the pieces of the collection, the Treasure of St. Gennaro would be even richer than the crown of England's Queen Elizabeth II and the Czars of Russia. The Treasure is a collection of art works, kept untouched thanks to the Deputation of the Royal Chapel of the Treasure of San Gennaro, an ancient secular institution founded in 1527 by a vote of the city of Naples, still existing. Today, the donations are exhibited in the Museum, whose entrance is located on the right side of the Cathedral of Naples, under the arcades. By visiting the Museum, you can access the Royal Chapel of San Gennaro, where the two ampules containing San Gennaro's Blood are kept in the Major altar.

I'm a local, living in a little town distant a few km from Naples and this Musem. I'm 44 years old and i did feel ashamed for viewing such a beauty only after so much time. The treasure kept in this Museum is amazing and San Gennaro is one of the most iconic figure of Naples. After my visit i started to understand better why. I suggest to visit the museum with a guide, for me made a huge difference. Without a guide, may be you don't fully understand the meaning of the exposed masterpieces that melt with the mystery and glory of this Saint.

Very nice museum! A home to the amazing jewls and diamonds, made by the masters of Napoli through the centuries and donated to the church and San Gennaro, protector of the city! Inside you can find a crown (Mitra di San Gennaro) that has more than 3.000 diamonds, rubins and other jewls! Nice experience for only 5e ticket fee!

Small but outstanding collection of jewellery. The marketing campaign at the entrance (shaming the British Crown Treasure) is ridiculous and offensive. Not a must but a good artistic experience. Tour guides shouting and pushing you out of the museum rooms if they have to explain something to their customers because "you didn't pay for it"... If you can stand with these black spots and love diamonds and emeralds, try it.
