Simply beautiful

The castle is magnificent. The entry fee is ridiculously cheap. Very beautiful light especially if the sky is clear. You will enjoy the beautiful view overlooking Naples harbor.

Walk, see and enter to the most colorful Castle in Naples ! Just on the beach... My recommendation also is eating in restaurants near the castle, outside of it, many of the most original ones !

Our visit here was mesmerising. This castle offers a fantastic view of the surrounding city, coastline and even Capri. A must visit if you're in the area, for sure.

We visit Naples often and my son asks each time to visit the "egg castle", free entry and amazing views of the city and Capri. Some little bars and restaurants situated at the foot of the castle, well worth seeing

while everything else was closed on 1 Jan, this castle was open and it's free admission as well there was a small exhibition, otherwise you are free to explore the area the view over Naples, the bay and the islands is amazing ...easy to combine with a walk along the waterfront

One of the few things open on New Years Day and well worth the visit. Plus it's free (although we would have gladly paid an entrance fee).

this whole area of the city is beautiful. we stayed at the hotel transatlantico which was right on the water near by, the castle itself has a lot of history, but I wish there had been some written history at the location. the view from the top is fantastic, they had a viewing of paintings in one of the rooms...

While walking towards "via Francesco caracciolo", This beautiful Castle was always within the sight. On a bright sunny day, it looks even beautiful with the sun in the backdrop light sea breeze and with many people sitting around the rocks or on the pavement. Definitely worth a watch

Took a walk by the small island looking like, there are lots of restaurants, its a nice romantic walk, get to see the boats parked there. The staff that works in different places are gentle and friendly. At night its kind of cold, so wear something warm.
