  • Huge castle structure near the port area. Very visible as you are approaching the port from a cruise ship. Very busy traffic here with lots of cars so be careful.

  • This castle/fortress was built in 1279 and since then has been occupied by kings of Naples, Aragon and Spain until 1815. Inside are bureaucratic offices, a museum, Palatine chapels, Neapolitan...

  • From the outside this castle Nuovo looks very beautiful. I do believe that the story about this castle is very unique, but unfortunately this is not visible on the inside. You need to buy your ticket online (€6 p.p) and glad we choose the one without a guide. Nothing inside those walls could blew me away of beautiness, so it was a 1 time visit for inside. On the other hand, the outside has some real nice spots to look at and the total view is amazing. Positive is that sightseeing Napoli has its starting point at this location. So easy to hop on to your next location in Napoli.
  • One of the most important sights in Naples. It used to be the palace of King Alphonse who put a lot of secret symbols all around the castle. I highly recommend the guided tour. It' only 10 Euros. Friendly local young guides explain you in details the history of the castle and all the symbols build in it.
