  • Ruined castle with the museum of ceramics and coins. Situated on top of the mountain, close to the sea shore so the views are great and worth seeing. However, the castle itself is nothing uncommon in itself - stone walls, staircases etc. Nice place for a stopping if you're travelling on A3 highway to Salerno, as it's really close.
  • View from the castle on a sunset is Amasing!
  • Fantastic view.
  • Nice views of the city but the castle itself is a waste of time, the path is not very clear and you often end at dead ends where there is nothing interesting to see. The museum is very small.
  • The view is incredible here. The museum is a little steep in price but walking through the castle is totally worth it.
