I won't even try to explain how to get here. It is a true adventure, but worth it for the view. The tourist bureau gave us directions and a map. Found the funicular just fine, but they had marked the wrong stop on our map...More

Fantastic views of Naples, half price with the Artecard, either take the steps up, catch the funicular or take the tube to Vanvitelli.

If you make it up there -- either on foot or with the 'funicolare' -- you will be rewarded with a magnificient view of Napoli. It is really worth it! As with all public museums, on the first Sunday of the month entrance is free!...More

Hadn’t planned on visiting here, but as it was on the way as we were walking (from the Quattro Giornale area), decided to pop in. It’s quite an impressive structure, huge towering walls and all that, and when you get to the top (which is...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.
