Castle
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.
