The location is very convenient being close to other attractions but it's disappointing. The best thing about the castle were the views of the city, coast and port area.

To be honest, apart from being an interesting landmark this didn't attract us to explore further. But who knows maybe we missed out on something!

Nice to visit when there is a sunny day. The views are great and you can reach the top terrace by using a free elevator.

This place will be the best way to finish a long walk through Naples, there is nothing inside but an ancient structure who finish in the very best view of Naples in so many ways, the domes in the downtown, the Naples bay and, for sure, the Vesuvius volcano, it will be a little strong walk but for sure you...

Friends brought us here to show us the magnificent views over Naples, Vesuvius , the bay and the islands. We were not disappointed. Amazing views and because you can walk around you get different views each turn

The castle is a famous and popular choice for the backdrops... More
