I visited this castle with my boyfriend and whilst it was beautiful and gave you fantastic views of the bay (for free, might I add which was a bonus!) it was a disappointment as a historical monument. There was no structure or diagrams explaining what each part of the castle was so you had no idea what you were looking... More

Free entrance for a change, amazing views, in the process of being restored, worth a visit especially if you are planning to walk along the coast beforehand as it's an ideal rest stop and not too busy.

Once you make it to what you think is the top, the views are stunning. Lots and lots of space for photos of beautiful scenery in the back ground. Some of the rooms are in use as exhibit halls, and I think there is a library as well. Its worth it just for the views and it was peacfull and... More

We walked all the way from the train station to this castle. The Castel dell’Ovo and the surrounding area was beautiful compared to the rest of the old city. Had the best Neapolitan pizza (Margherita ) just at the bottom of the castle, where you’ll find very reasonable priced restaurants by the water. Great food and great service. On the... More

My expectations from seeing the outside wasn't very high but I was pleasantly surprised by the inside. Don't expect a museum but the views from each side & from the top are stunning!! Free to get in on that day, thank you San Ginarro!!

After a nice walk next to the sea you walk up this massive Castle to have nice pictureviews over the bay and the city of Naples and take in some of the seabreeze. Liked it and was for free.

This castle was great. We were able to go at any point and just walk ourselves through at our own pace and the best part is its free. Once you get to the top you could hang as long as you please and if you prefer like we did to watch the sun set. Isn't a lot to see as... More

Great place to visit directly on the water. A lot of nice places where to eat and/or drink immediately around it. Highly recommended.

As a fan of something free, I took a stroll around here early one morning when it had just opened. Such a solid looking building, it seems bigger once inside. Not much to see, but the windows make good frames for the many photos you will take of the views over the bay. I was surprised by the number of... More
