I had an apartment on the road to the castle so it seemed stupid not to visit. It was easy to buy tickets. Be warned there is only one slow six person lift to the top of the castle and it was a lengthily wait to clear the party ahead. However when we got out and were able to explore... More

Located on a separate island connected by causeway to Ischia, it offers beautiful panoramic views of Ischia, the sea, and Napoli shoreline. Very pleasant walks include gardens and remains of the historic buildings that comprised the caste. Absolutely worth the visit.

A pleasant castle to visit make sure that you get there early to avoid the crowds. The lift up is tiny. The castle has some amazing views of the town.The cafe at the top is a well deserved treat when you reach the top. The pomegranates growing In the castle grounds was a lovely find.
