The Castle Tour

Four medieval castles give downtown Naples a princess and dragon flair: Castel Capuano, Castel dell’Ovo, Castel Nuovo, and Castel Sant’Elmo. For those who live in Campania, I recommend visiting these castles over a series of several weekends, but a day-long tour of all four works just as easily.

Castles abound throughout the region. Outside Salerno, you can walk to charming views at Castel Arechi, in Baia visit the Archeological Museum of Campi Flegrei, or spot abandoned edifices just about everywhere.
