Access to exclusive areas of the castle *Protective helmets
The Castel dell'Ovo (Castrum Ovi, in Latin), is the oldest castle in the city of Naples. It's one of the area's most impressive local landmarks, not least because of its incomparable views over the Gulf of Naples, with Mount Vesuvius looming in the background. Legend traces its name back to a story involving the Roman poet Virgil, who had a reputation as a sorcerer and fortune-teller in the Middle Ages. * On this exclusive guided tour, learn more about the importance of the egg in the basement (yes, really), and the castle itself. See the tower that was built in the Norman era. Witness a series of arches from the Aragonese period, and stand before the Church of the Savior. Enjoy exclusive access to three rooms that are usually closed to groups, and discover the history of the site, from royal residence to prison, and more.
