Not much to see inside the castle but we went on a Saturday and 4 weddings were being held there, seemingly together, with the local press and TV. Good views from the top.

Beautiful views of the Bay of Naples, but not much else. The castle is well preserved and you can see for miles from the top.

Apart from the view, there is nothing else to visit in the castle. But it is close to the harbor and easily accessible, in particular if you come back from one of the islands by ferry.

Key reason to visit this castle is its view over the harbour and the boulevard. Great place to bring some food and drinks and hang out for a bit. Entrance is free. Not that much to see at the castle itself.

Time trip advisor gave it its proper name.... Free to visit! Nice views of the bay , and the Naples promenade. And ,at the base ,are some nice(overpriced) restaurants for lunch. Dreadful toilets.
