All reviews castle walls degree view short walk to the castle actual castle funicular ride modern art museum great view of naples bay of naples entire city vomero hill follow the signs cable car awesome views worth the effort via toledo sunny day worth the trip

We were in Naples for a cruise and had a little bit of time to explore the city. We saw a castle sitting on top of the major hill in the area and decided that it would be cool to walk to it. It was...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
On our trip to Naples a visit to Castel Sant'Elmo was not planned, but my girlfriend convinced me to change our plan and pay a visit, and i am glad we did.

It is a bit steep to come up here but there is also an elevator. Especially useful for little kids and strollers.

Hi it’s on the hill over looking the city and the bay of Naples ,so take the funicular railway up and walk round...at at the ticket office then enter the castle from the bottom...walk to the top there’s not a lot to see on the way up BUT you’re rewarded with the most spectacular views once there....once you’re done head back down go to the monastery next door have a look around there too ,that’s quite interesting then walk down the Panoramic steps they are fantastic too
