The Castel is a lovely place to visit while walking the Naples seafront. On top of the long history to think about, you get great views over towards Vesuvio and the bay of Naples towards Capri - maybe an interesting exhibition also. Don't miss it.

You cannot see much of the interior of the Castle but are able to walk up to the top of it to get some lovely views across the bay of Naples

Huge castle, very impressive walls and fortresses. Great place to visit and have some lunch afterwards at one of the restaurants along the shore.

This castle in the harbour is a nice thing to do if you are around or have some time left to spend. The scenery from the castle is nice but there are better places.

Very different from the two others castles of Napoli. Impressive. Have to see this place, one of the oldiest of the Town. The place is also great in the evening
