Nice to look at from our hotel breakfast and nice to go inside with some stunning views over the bays on both sides and of Vesuvius rising up ominously. There does not seem to be an entrance fee which struck me as odd but upon closer inspection it would appear that the castle gets used for business seminars and also by various local government agencies by the nameplates on various doors around.

Walking along Via Caracciolo you can deviate into the so called "Borgo Maqrinaro" and pay a visit to the Egg Castle. The story of this Place is a legend but the beaty of this Place is true! When you get on the top of the castle you will become part of the sourranding nature: the sea and the sky and the sun...Close your Eyes and Dream!

Free to walk around. Offers great views of the bay and the city from the top. There is some information around, but not a lot. Definitely worth a visit. Plenty of restaurants and cafes in the area.
