While thedice history of the castle is extremely iteresting, the sights are rather poor, and most of the efidice is closed for the visitors.

Nice to walk inside and enjoy the views of Naples all around the Castel. There are expositions inside also that can be visited nothing too fancy.

Great for an after-lunch activity. A few stairs to reach the top but nothing too strenuous in my opinion.

Nice visit in an open castle free to access. Inside the castle, there was an exhibition of cribs that was very good.

A very nice fortress on a prominent location by the see. Climbing the stairs and watching the view was a joy. Definitily to visit if you're in Naples.

We walked here from old town in about 30 minutes. It's a great slow paced linear exploration of this ruined castle. From the top you have access to many photo ops and views.

Nice views. The walk is ALL up hill, untill you're done then its all down hill! There are plenty of restaurants at the base of Castel dell'Ovo, unfortunately we didn't rat at any of them because they were closed. We were there around 2pm./1400.
