There's not much to see here but it's free and the view from the top is spectacular. There is a very good diagram showing all the major sites across the bay. It was a Sunday when we were here and very hot. Lots of people out in boats and swimming in the bay or sunbathing on the rocks. Naples looked beautiful.

Across the bay of Naples ,as there isn't a fee it's worth a visit .Very good for photos ,a professional photo shoot was taking place when we were there .As a tourist you should be careful as we did see someone being pick pocketed ! Impressive Castle and you can see evidence of battles of the past the city of Naples is a short walk so I would recommend .

The building has not much to be seen. However the entrance is free and you can enjoy a nice view to the bay and Capri island, and also a good view to the city. You will find many couples having photos there (it seems newlyweds go there for good luck).
Since I was staying nearby it was really worth the visit.

On our first day in Naples we went down to look at the seafront, and found ourselves in here. Free entry, and we had no idea what we'd find but wandered in. Nothing much inside apart from some nice windows overlooking Mt. Vesuvius on the way up. The route through takes you upwards, and out onto flat roof terraces with lovely views. Then you reach the very top, and can look out over the Bay of Naples; fabulous view.

We went here on a tuesday and almost had the whole place to ourselves which was lovely. Its free to get in and is definitely worth wandering up to the top to see the views across the bay and watch the fishermen nearby in the pretty little harbour. Its only a 20 min walk from the historical centre and one of the nicer walks around Naples as you walk along the seafront with Vesuvius in the distance. There are loads of lovely restaurants nearby serving great local food and fresh seafood.
