NAPLES: hidden treasures under everybodys eyes

Two days ago I visited this incredible place with my clients, in the harbour of Naples where three big cruise ships, but we were the only visitors of this incredible monument with free entrence only 500 meters from the harbour away. 
Dear Visitors when you arrive in Naples, don't follow the mass, look around you and you will be surprised positively

Some information.....
"Castel dell Ovo is Naples oldest castle.
According to one of the most fanciful Neapolitan legends, the name of this castle derives from the egg that the Latin poet Virgil apparently hid in a cage placed in the dungeons of the castle. The
egg was locked up and kept hidden because "the fortune of the Sea Castle depended on that egg".

Since then, the destiny of that castle has been in parallel with the fate of that egg. Chronicles report that, during queen Anne's reign, the castle was heavily damaged when the hump-backed bridge connecting the two rocks the castle was built on collapsed, thus obliging queen Anne to reveal she had made sure the egg would be replaced so as not to spread panic among her subjects who feared further troubles and disasters."
