This pretty castle looks like it is straight out of a fairy-tale. The towers and turrets of the castle give it a very unique look. In many ways it is quite an iconic site to the city of Naples. It is also called the Maschio Angioino.
Built in 1282 this castle served as a replacement for the Palermo close to the sea. It has a rather illustrious history since it was the cultural center of the city at one point. Now it is home to the Municipal Museum but still has a lot of cultural events taking place in its premises.
It is certainly one of the most memorable sites in Naples which makes it a definite must visit.

Very majestic structure. Mighty lock, made powerful and strong. The castle is especially beautiful in the evening and at night when it is illuminated above the sea. Against the background of the temple is great to make wonderful photos. This fortress is one of the business cards of Naples. It is worth returning here. Good place!👍
Great history and a fantastic structure. However, before you are even allowed inside you are pressured into listening to descriptions of three tours and then you have to decide. You are then marched over to post and have to wait around. We opted for the quicker dungeon tour which was quite interesting but the guide didn't really seen to be into it very much.
spectacular building! It looks so majestic! I love the mix of those huge columns and white frontal part, it is perfect in its disharmony! Behind it there is amazing view of the Vesuvius so you will have tons of great photos :)
Well it's a tourist trap for sure, but very pretty. I wouldn't recommend taking any tours, as it's a waste of money. If you speak Italian, the staff are easier to communicate with, but most speak English anyway. So check it out, or don't, it's up to you. It's just as pretty from the outside and within it. Maybe even more so.
Excellent place to see. Entrance was free but I recommend paying the tour guide to see some places you can't access, learn more about history and especially to be on roof; the sight is incredible. Was lucky the tour was half price. On the 3 tour guides, the two girls were having perfect English speaking.
