Yes, it is great views. But that is it. Not worth the cost of admission. Nothing else there. The good news it is one way to avoid the Napoli crowds.

We took a very long walk to this building from the Port but its well worth it! If you go on a Tuesday there is a discounted ticket price. Great viewpoint of Naples.
