We had only a few hours before taking a train and had a great experience on the Castello Nuovo, Michele from IVI was a great guide, showed us very interesting things and symbols from the castle! Great visit.

We walked a 9 mile round trip to get there and was not disappointed, cost us 8 euro to get in that was for two. Lots of things to see and views from the top awsome.

The museum has a great collection of roman and Greek artifacts, statues, jewelry and much more. Jewels are very pretty.

Walked all the way up from town on kinda a sidewalk littered with broken glass and dog sh•t. Not impressed. Only to find everything closed. Hours are only in the morning. Go figure. Another walk down through the glass menagerie.

This beautiful site which used to be Caesar's Summer mansion opens mainly in the morning. Be aware of the peculiar museum schedule. Then choose your day: it is so that even on a 'bad' day the view is awesome. On a gorgeous day the view...More
