I was there on a rainy day with lots of fog. It was nice to walk the castle but the views were next to nothing. It would probably be a lot better on a sunny day.

Amazing 360 views of Naples. Took some stunning photographs. The castle itself is massive but there’s nothing in it! The only thing is a contemporary art museum in the middle- not what we were expecting. You are paying for the views... nothing else.

The views of Naples are truly amazing from up here. It’s an interesting visit as a whole but the 360 degree view from the walls is the star. It’s beautiful on a clear day. You can see the line of Spaccanapoli cut through the old...More

On our last day in Naples, we took the funicular up up up the escarpment to the castle. It had been recommended to us for the views, and it didn't disappoint. The views from the battlements of Naples are just amazing - you can walk...More

This is probably the highest climb we did during our trip. The rain in Napoli did not deter us in climbing up those many hundred steps of cobbled stone to this Castle. Once on top you are greeted with many bazaar of original handcrafted Cameo...More

Saint Elmo's Castle is located at Via Tito Angelini, 22, 80129 Napoli. We made our way to the hilltop Castle by riding the funicular from Stazione Napoli Montesanto. The castle dates back to 1329 and was built by order of Charles of Anjou and is...More

Staggeringly beautiful 360 degree views high above Naples and across to Mount Vesuvius and Sorrento on one side and the island of Ischia on the other. The Fort itself is enormous. Well worth visiting.

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.
