My partner and I visited Naples for a weekend in January 2017. On the Sunday we decided to visit Castel Nuovo, a 12th century castle near the centre of town. There we decided to go on a 45 minute tour led by one of the group of guides, who all study the castle's history as archeologists. Our tour was great,... More

It's an incredible view from an amazing castle. Inside the castle there is an exposition of art. Following some comments from people i don't get inside, but only to see it from outside is worth it.

When it rains in Naples it really rains! We were on our way to catch the Ischia ferry and had some time to kill when the heavens opened and we scurried into Castle Nuovo not having planned to see it whilst we were in Naples. We were pleasantly surprise with the place. It's an imposing medieval fortress overlooking the harbour... More

We chose to visit this beautiful castle with a guide, Marco, who was very attentive, precise and friendly. We went through some areas which didn't seem to be open to non-guided tours and had a fun experience visiting the different chambers and hearing about the history of the city. I definitely recommend it.

Unless it's very rainy, you can enjoy this Castle standing outside and saving 6 euros. Most of the floors are closed

My wife and I took the €10 (per head) tour of the castle, which was worth every penny. The tour was about an hour and included a walk of this historic castle from the parapet to the dungeon. Our guide, Marco, was well informed and spoke excellent English. We're very happy we took the time for this!

Good first castle experience. Not extremely captioned but authentic defensive structure which is well filled with Cannon facing inlland (?) Some statues, etc. .Didn't allocate time for art exhibit. .Kids are beyond teens. (20-30's).
