“Worth a visit!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

I'm a sucker for Castles and this one didn't disappoint. The views were great and there was an art exhibit in one room with sculptures by a Napolitano artist. Great stuff!

“Excellent Backdrop to Dinners”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Didn't go inside it but loved spending evenings at the Castle's feet, next to the gentle swaying of boat masts, having a drink or good food! Lots of restaurants and bars to choose from.

“Great Views”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Smallish castle on a little island in the bay. Climb the ramparts and get good views of Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples.

Combine this with somewhere else in Naples as the visit does not take long.

Only disappointment was that you could not go in individual rooms inside.

“Great views”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

If you climb to the top, you get a great view of the Gulf and you can see for miles around. A great place for taking photos.

“The Egg Castle. Go figure.”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

You should go to the Castel dell'Ovo not only to see the medieval fortress, but to see the Bay of Naples. There's nothing inside the castle, but it is an important piece of the history of Naples. Then walk along the Lungomare, and eat lunch or dinner at a restaurant near the castle. Or buy some panini and sit and watch the locals.
