  • Aesthetically doesn't look like a castle and a Palace. From the 12th century it was the seat of the courts, now the police. From the portal with the tower and the coat of arms of Charles V leads to a large arcaded courtyard. I knew you could visit the chapel Summary with its frescoes of the 1500s but unfortunately it was not possible because of renovation work. Too bad!

Where to stay in Naples

Naples' lodging options include everything from turn-of-the-century historical mansions to hip boutique hotels. For a five-star experience in the heart of town, book a centrally located luxury hotel. Less expensive but just as comfortable, traditional inns just outside the central area offer peaceful comfort, private parking, and private outdoor space ideal for quiet dinners and small parties. If you are looking for a less urban experience and prefer to stay in a leafy neighborhood, consider the city's residential suburbs.
