Castel dell'Ovo x Maria Francesca = experience you don't wanna miss!
Nov. 2021
We went for the guided tour in Castel dell'Ovo, even though we were the only non native visitors, maria Francesca always took her time to explain us the history and interesting side information about the castle and city. Great tour, great and engaging tour guide :) thank you !

Nice fortress
Nov. 2021 • Couples
Located at the seaside near the big harbor where the cruise ships dock, is this 18-19th century fortification. At the moment there is an exhibition about the Epytian pharaoh Tutankamun. Around the fortress are some restaurants located.

No real wow factor
Oct. 2021 • Couples
Like many many such castles with nothing special
I guess you must see if in Naples but you need only 1 hour
It was relatively quiet bring October so no problems with crowds

It deserves a visit
Sep. 2021 • Solo
I had the oportunity to go there but could only visit the inside in a guided tour. They told me that's because Covid19: as I hadn't reserved previously it was already full and I couldn't enter on my own. But they offered me to be added in a guided tour that it was about to begin. For 10 € the guide, Teresa, explained both in italian and english a brief history of the castle and led us to the top of the buildinng to admire the views and also to a very interesting room articulared by columns, that, otherwise, I couldn't have seen if I could have entered on my own. All In all, it was great I cojld enter. Teresa was concise but very nice. The lack of two stars is because I missed written panels about the building and its history and because I would have liked to see a little bit more of it. It's also a nice walk to arrive there so it deserves a place in the list "what to see in Naples".

Nothing special
Sep. 2021 • Friends
Nothing awesome. It is pretty from outside but 6€ compared to all the other city’s attractions are too much. You just pay for it cause it’s well known but nothing that good. If you want to go upstairs and see the view you have to pay an extra 10€

Guided tour is a must!
Aug. 2021
As it was so hot, we were undecided whether to wait for the guided tour, but we did, and it was a good idea, as the rooms as basically empty, but with the guide you get a fascinating history lesson on a part of Italy that is perhaps not so well-known.
Spectacular views from the roof.
