Nice view

Nothing overly exciting, but the view is nice and entrance is free. It's close to royal palace and one of important squares.

Good view but this part of a nasty city is dirtier, graffiti covered, and more crowded than the rest of this dump. Our advice....go to Po pie, stay in Pompei and avoid Naples at all costs.

We visited it on a rainy day. There was a nice underwater photos exhibition (free entrance). Close to the Castle are several restaurants and pizzerias for a lunch or dinner break.

This is a fascinating old structure with lots of history to tell. You will have to read up on it beforehand however, as there is little on site to make the place make sense.

The castle grounds are free to visit, however it was not possible to visit the inside of the castle. From here one can enjoy spectacular views of the city of Naples, mount Vesuvius and the islands. There were also some interesting statues decorating the passageways. On top one can also find a fantastic map of the city painted on tiles.... More

The views of Naples, Vesuvius, Ischia, and the harbor from the top of the castle are great. There is no cost to enter and there are art exhibits in some of the lower rooms.

The castle was closed but the grounds were opened. We walked up and there was a lift on the right. Took us up saving our legs. Walk up to the canons and rake photos of Mt Vesuvius and Naples. On a clear day, take photos of Sorrento and Capri. It was raining all day with thunderstorms so our views were... More
