Amazing views of the harbour, mount Vesuvius on one side and the city on the other. Worth a visit and on most days the entrance is free.

Must visit while staying in Naples. On one side you have great view on Vesuv and on the other to Capri.

Nice old castle but without much going on inside. But the views from it are very good of Naples and Vesuvius.

Don’t miss this place! It has great views of Naples. It is really great when you are on a family trip!
