As one of the highest points in Naples, this castle provides excellent 360-degree views over the city and surrounding area. It is well organised and signposted within the grounds and, due to partial closure on our visit, a reduced fee. If you get an Artecard...More

If you can find Castel Sant'Elmo, you're already doing well. The lack of signs to the entrance is really quite impressive. It's as though they neither care for your custom, nor want it. If you can keep a sense of humour, you'll be ok. There...More

The only interesting thing is the view which is really amazing. The cable car can take you up to the top after what 5€ is the cost of the entrance. Nothing else to see beside the view. My advice is to visit by night time...More

This castle was really cool. There was a contemporary art thing but it was not the reason to go visit. The reason to go visit is the 360 degree view of the city of Naples. It is marvelous, from the water to the old city...More

You can get to the castle either by taking the funicular or the monumental stairs...the stairs are more rewarding but it was good to take the funicular down. Great views and interesting architecture and buildings. This is one of those times when the Neapolitan lack...More

Didn’t have it on my plan originally but saw the great fortress on top of the hill and had some time to kill so I went for it. There must be a bus or some other transport that can take you there but I just...More

This is the main reason you go there. You get smashing panorama over Naples towards Vesuvius, sea and islands. Castle itself is not striking - thick walls, nice gate but not much to see inside apart from some art exhibitions. Ticket is EUR 5 (you...More

We went here to get out of the city a bit, and it was a nice view over the bay. We wandered around the walls, but beyond that, there is not much else to do. There is some art inside, but nothing spectacular. We also...More

I'm not sure because it's a no working day in Italy, but I guess so. Opening hours from 8.30am to 7.30 pm but the ticket shop closes at 6.30.
