Exploring Our Neighborhood

Atelier Inès. Arts & Suites is located in the picturesque Vergini district of Naples, which is considered an “open-air museum”. It is a place full of curiosities and contradictions, where the sacred and the profane have coexisted for centuries.

 

As soon as you step outside the property you’re surrounded by the extraordinary and still beauty of the city’s churches, palaces and monuments, yet within a typically lively setting. The district is also home to some of the finest examples of civil architecture in the Neapolitan Baroque style – Palazzo dello Spagnolo, for example, is famed for its grand double-flight staircase.

 

The monumental complex of the Vincenziano is an 18th-century structure rich in archaeological, spiritual and architectural history, and developed in the ancient sacred area for Greek-Roman burials. The area is also famous for underground catacombs such as San Gaudioso, the Fontanelle cemetery, the Roman Serino aqueduct, and the church of San Vincenzo. 

 

The property is just 100 metres from the nearest metro station, the Museum of Archaeology and the Contemporary Art Museum il Madre, and a stone’s throw from some of the most popular spots in Naples. Our guests can also enjoy experiences inspired by the city’s heritage and culture, such as exploring the city via Vespa, private wine cellar tastings and gastronomic tours.
