We went there when touring the area and didn’t expect anything so it was a good surprise. Great views on Naples and the bay. Really enjoyed the visit!

Visited both coastal castles and in our opinion this one was the best by a clear mile and then some. Absolutely loved it and would recommend it to anyone to visit. Not only interesting but great views from it.

A lovely seaside castle, a great place to wander and feel the breeze. You get some gorgeous view over the coast from different angle, and best of all it’s free to enter!

I would recommend stopping by as you walk along the seafront. It is a castle in its rawest state. Take it or leave it. The views are impressive and offer good photos of the gulf and the city. There was an interesting art exhibition. Beyond...More

Castel dell'Ovo in Naples. Site of one of the worlds oldest fortifications, an amazing sight with views over the harbour but that's about it. A few sculptures and a trip to the battlements. Apparently one of Naples treasure houses but now doesn't seem to have...More

The position of the castle is fantastic, the castle is very beautiful you can watch it from outside if you don't want do go inside. Nothing exceptional but very beautiful

Probably the best view of the Naples bay. The Castle itself has not many art to offer but you can really get a sense of the history from this amazing site. Many good restaurants close by . The walking on the shore is beautiful.
