Nice to walk inside and enjoy the views of Naples all around the Castel. There are expositions inside also that can be visited nothing too fancy.

Great for an after-lunch activity. A few stairs to reach the top but nothing too strenuous in my opinion.

Nice visit in an open castle free to access. Inside the castle, there was an exhibition of cribs that was very good.
