  • The are views of some of the harbour from the terraces but you only get a small window of sight.... and is it really a nice harbour anyway? The castle itself can only be called that for the exterior. ...  more »
  • We did the new tour of the mystery of the Grail that deserves 10 euro spent. Money which are reinvested in further research within the Castle. The guides are highly skilled and at the end of the tour the Castle look through different eyes. Congratulations to Francis for the dedication and sympathy

  • Particular 2017 Palm Sunday with visiting real and virtual, with the novelty esoteric, the Maschio Angioino. Another wonderful find in Naples that I thought I knew and visited Castle many times, but I've known under other "garments". Tantissini aliens and foreigners could enjoy one of the many wonders of my city. We support these new associations that are enhancing our city. IVI-INTERACTIVE VIDEO TOURS NAPLES

  • Impressive castle-museum complex with many interesting components, however, they are not all always accessible and the civic museum suffers from poor lighting design (like many Italian museums) which makes it difficult to fully enjoy all the exhibited artworks.
  • Castel Nuovo is probably the most fascinating medieval building among the seven fortresses built during the centuries. The tickets is a bit expensive (€6), and the setting-up may not be exactly "wow" but it is really worthwhile
  • A castle to visit. It only cost € 6, because the building is quite small. However, there are many interesting things and a very nice view from the terrace (sea view). Even more beautiful than the Tower (one of six). Inside there are also two exhibitions of paintings, with several works. The first contains Renaissance paintings, the other, more beautiful in my opinion, southern artist paintings of the nineteenth century and early 1900.

  • In a dominant position, stands on piazza Municipio the imposing structure of Castel Nuovo, better known as the Angevin Tower. Built precisely during the rule of the city by Charles of Anjou in the 13th century, is distinguished by high walls and towers and massive, widely projected on the glass surface.
