Itinerary

We will start with the visit of Pio Monte della Misericordia. A once important charitable organization in the city, this church houses Caravaggio's The Seven Acts of Mercy.

After we will direct to Capodimonte. Once the Bourbon Royal Palace, Capodimonte is one of the finest museums in Italy. The museum collection includes Caravaggio's The Flagellation of Christ.

At the end we will arrive to the Galleria di Palazzo Zevallos Stigliano. Built by architect Cosimo Fanzago in the 17th century, the Banca Commerciale Italiana bought this Palazzo in 1920.
