Visit this sight when going to Certosa di San Martino. Great views of the bay, while visiting a well preserved fortress. However, be sure to have on comfortable walking shoes. The walk to and within the castle is all uphill. The walk itself is made of stones, so good shoes will make the going more comfortable.

We came here as we wanted tl see the incredible views of the bay of Naples. To get here find the funicular line at Auguesteo off Via Toledo then take the line to Piazza Fuga and its about a 5 min walk from the station. Once there its 5 euros to get in which is well worth the money just for the views alone. The Castle is in fantastic condition and you can walk around the castle taking in the 360 views of Naples. There is also a art museum up at the top but we didnt go in. So glad we found the time to come up here

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.
