We visited here at the end the day, and we got in free as it was included in the Naples Art Card that we had. Its a very impressive castle - but you don't get to see much of the building itself. The view from the top is truly amazing - we were there are dusk fell and it was beautiful to watch the city moving to nighttime and all the lights turning on. Magical. We were with two hard to impress teenagers - but this was the highlight of their visit - they loved it. We enjoyed looking for places we had visited over the last couple of days - the view is immense. We didn't visit the art exhibition there - we were too captivated by the view!

If you wanna see all of Naples from above the St. Elmo is a definent! The drive up is entertaing and the Castle is Gorgeous although I was more sweap away by the views of Naples, you can see everything & it's more than worth it for 5 Euro a person & if you want to go to the museum right by the castle it's 6 euro each so you have plenty to view & is extremely close to downtown so you will never get bored! I say it's a don't miss, breathtaking sites!

The trek up the funicular and then to the castle is well worth it for the views of Naples and over to Vesuvius. The art museum is worth a browse but otherwise theres little more to seE

This castle/military museum has free admission for the last hour of each day. Just get a ticket first. The views are unsurpassed when walking the ramparts. Worth the hassle of getting here.

Absolutely the finest views to be found in all of Naples. I honestly did not go in the museum but instead walked the walls of the Castel. Easy to walk around the entire Castel and take photos of the entire town. Breathtaking!
