Castel Nuovo - Review
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.
Also, visit nearby attractions which are covered in Naples itinerary 7 days.

Castel Nuovo, Naples Reviews
Nice to see from the outside, especially at night with a beautiful sunset. Iconic and lovely. There is construction around right now which makes it a little bit difficult to walk around but it’s still very lovely. Right near the port of Naples and lots of nearby restaurants to walk to you for lunch or dinner. Also pharmacy nearby. Be careful with the traffic and the crazy drivers
Medieval castle in a surprisingly well preserved condition. Unlike most historical buildings this one looks much better and more promising from outside than inside. Entry is 6 EUR that tells you something. (Main archaeological sites in Italy hardly ever charge less than 20 EUR.) The view is nice. Otherwise the art exhibitions inside are rather small, not too well organized, and not too interesting. They have some medieval artworks that are pretty good. That's it.
There is not much exploring to do except for what you might get curious for. For minors there is no ticket you need to pay for. There are art pieces arranged in a museum way for you to look at and see the feels of the artist while making them. The place has a vibe of it's own that is sort of creepy. It feels like this castle was used for many unconventional things. The castle won't be crowded so you'll be able to observe without interruptions. It's not a bad place to visit.
Incredible castle. Once was surrounded by a moat. Really let's you know what it must have been like back then. The triumphal arch at the entry way is beautiful. Very intricate and detailed. Looks like something right out of king Arthur days. Well worth the time to explore it.
We liked it here. Good value for money, fresh water fountains to top up your fluids and shade to eat your snacks in. Take loo roll ladies as none to be found just like the loo seats.
