The outside of the Castel Nuovo is really something - it dominates the Piazza Municipio and is probably the most impressive castle in the centre of Naples. Unfortunately, we didn't see it at its best, as they are currently doing a lot of roadworks and...More

I was there with my husband during January 2012 before heading to Sorrento on the next day. We really enjoyed the stunning view of the harbor and romantic sunset experience. After sunset, we were also attracted by the night view of the castle front.

Like so many things about Naples, this place manages to be interesting despite itself. There is really not that much to see. The Hall of Barons is quite impressive and the views over the Bay are good. When you pay you are given a photo-copied...More

This is the huge castle in the centre of Naples that you see as you come into the city from the ferries. Inside there's a fair amount to see, but it's not one of the best attractions in Naples. There's a small art gallery, a...More

To be honest, it was very nice but not something marvelous. The castle is really enormous and symmetrical, the marble doorway arch is really an outstanding renaissance piece showing the triumph of king Alfonso of Aragon. Unfortunately the former main attraction, the Giotto frescoes at...More
