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.

Castel Nuovo, Naples Reviews - Write a Review

  • Really great place with interesting history. Well worth the small entrance fee. To be honest this castle / museum only cost 6€ and it was way better than some of the museims we went to in Rome for 15€. And its a beautiful walk by the ocean to get there.

  • Audio tour is boring. Public access points are in disrepair. Staff would rather play with their phones than help you find the bathroom. When you finally do find it, there's absolutely no toilet paper and it's filthy and there was poop in the walls. I felt sad for the poor castle to be honest.

  • Partly ok partly sad or dilapidated. Not a lot to see here, so admire it from the outside and save 6 euros a head. Don't bother looking for the toilets no toilet paper, no lavatory seat nothing to dry your hands and the ladies' had been out of service for so long the out of order sign was dirty and fading. Great however for taking photos of the port and Vesuvius.

  • Amazing structure overlooking the sea. We arrived to late to go inside but would definitely come back and do that

  • Part art gallery, part city council chambers, and complete renaissance castle, in a pretty good condition as well. Free to enter which is a bonus.
