Castle · Historic Site
Castel Nuovo - Maschio Angioino is a medieval castle near the sea with iconic architecture. Many visitors claim the outside view is the most impressive, so be sure to stop for photos. Once inside, you can find a 15th-century bronze door with a cannonball embedded in it, historical artwork, and other antiquities.

  • I did not go inside, as I was not so interested in visiting the museum, but the castle is very beautiful, and worth a look on the outside.  more »
  • Unfortunately we did not go inside due to time limits, but it is very nice to see it even from outside, the architecture is impressive.  more »

  • Super awesome food! Great staff and Antonio was super helpful! The pizza and pasta was amazing. And they are conveniently located. Also open while everyone else was closed (around 12:30-1pm).This is a great find in Naples. Love this place it is a family run restaurant. We tried many places in Naples and have come back here a few times. They have great selections and very friendly.
  • Okay, now this place was pretty cool. It is one of Naples' three castles, and one of the two interesting ones, or at least the ones that you can actually go inside and have a wander around. In fact this castle also doubles as not only the city hall but also and art gallery. Another great thing about this place was that it didn't actually cost anything to go insider and have a wander around.
