It is a big castle at the top of the hill, the view is great so it is worth to climb up. There is a "lanovka" that goes up from downtown or a bus stops not far from the main door of the castle. Inside...More

A legközelebbi metro állomás a Vanvitelli (1-es vonal). Innen mozgólépcsőkkel (a lépcsők mellett jól láthatók, ingyenesen használhatók) is fel lehet jutni a Stazione Montesanto-ig. De innen már nincs mozgólépcső, hegynek felfelé kell haladni a Castel Sant'Elmo-ig. Út közben néha kicsit elveszve éreztem magam, eléggé labirintus-szerű...More

Come in the afternoon for the best light on the city, Vesuvius, and the Bay and its islands. Better views than from the Certosa di San Martino.

It is great fun to take the funicular up to this castle and take in the views - well sign posted and very welcome elevators to the top. Interesting modern art gallery too.

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.
