The Museo Civico inside the Castel Nuovo is a great stop for history lovers.
- Also known as the Castel Nuovo, the Maschio Angioino is a huge fortress built by the French Angevins during the 13th Century. The castle features 14th and 15th Century sculptures and frescoes as well as the Museo Civico. The courtyard highlights the Palatine Chapel and the Apartment of the Viceroys. Once a prime political and cultural venue in Napels, Castel Nuovo is now a popular tourist attraction and filming location for portions of Pier Paolo Pasolini's"Il Decameron" (1971) and "The Gospel According to St Matthew" (1964).
