  • Walked around and in the rain, but strikes don't scale the most beautiful that can be seen in Naples, but the kinds of fascinating!

  • Known as Maschio Angioino (by the French family of Anjou) is one of the emblems of Naples. The door between the two main towers, is richly decorated. The patio is headquarters of artistic performances in the summer. In the Castle runs the Societá Napoletana di Storia Patria, with its rich historic archive.

  • Beautiful Castel Nuovo. If you want to take a little trip, it's free! If you want some historical information worth to spend 10 € for the guide! They're young, competent, friendly and tell the history of the Castle and the meaning of its components immersed in accurate historical moments. Very good and congratulations again for the passion with which you know forward history and its symbols!
