About Castel dell'Ovo

The finest of the many castles  of Naples this impressive 15th century building stands on the site of a 6th century BC Greek colony, and later a Roman fortress.

Today the castle is best know as a sightseeing destination, a place to hold events, and of course a romantic backdrop for newly weds taking photographs.  Just a short walk from other attractions of the city.


Many visitors come to Naples but don't even realize that the Castel exists, so to provide a focus for them to understand this important place in the city we decided to make a dedicated website. So here is our FastFacts guide!
