Visit a well-preserved castle citadel that hosted a succession of conquerors and rulers from the Lombards to the Bourbon family at Casertavecchia. Beneath the Tifatini Mountains, you can explore the narrow alleyways and winding streets of this antique town, which arose in the ninth century.

  • A wonderful village historically, but degraded in various aspects. There is very little care of the Administration and the people. Some days it seems a Dantesque on movements of cars that almost come to church! Yet the Mayor and Council placed the ZTL, sin that has remained to the present idle and nobody knows why. Then the bushes defined pinewood which saw happy times decades ago, stray dogs and garbage varies. Deserves more than the old village!

  • In the clearing of the castle the filmmaker Pasolini staged filming of the Decameron and even today some of the lanes are lost in another time. There was the workshop of Panwitz that fascinated by the village remained there for years to draw inspiration for his art and for the colors of its Works. I liked to stop and talk more about feelings and past. In the Cathedral the tomb of an old Bishop reports engraved walls that once surrounded the city. Walk slowly and breathe the past

  • Casertavecchia is a small and beautiful old town, just a short distance from Caserta. The village is beautiful and full of history, but could be held even better. Very impressive landscape and wonderful evening.
