We took a very long walk to this building from the Port but its well worth it! If you go on a Tuesday there is a discounted ticket price. Great viewpoint of Naples.

We visited here on our last afternoon/evening in Naples, travelling up by funicular. We paid 1.25 euros each with our artecard - not sure if this is the usual price, but we arrived quite late so may have been cheaper. Nothing really to say about...More

I'm not sure because it's a no working day in Italy, but I guess so. Opening hours from 8.30am to 7.30 pm but the ticket shop closes at 6.30.
