An attraction like this would command a high entrance fee in many countries. However, the good news is that it’s free! A beautiful sloping walk to the top is broken up by a number of small galleries and art exhibits. The view out to Vesuvius...More

Absolutely amazing view from the top of the castle. We were lucky enough to be there in a bright day even it was an October's day. Free entrance. If you're in Naples do not miss this place.
