Castle Historic Site
Enjoy the views from the seaside Castel dell'Ovo, the oldest standing fortification in Naples. Its name comes from a legend that a sorcerer placed a magical egg in the foundation of the castle. If the egg breaks, the building supposedly will be destroyed, and Naples will experience a series of disastrous events. Study the tiled map of the landscape to identify the many landmarks you can see. Put Castel dell'Ovo and other Naples attractions into our Naples trip builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

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.
