  • It is a palace next to the Station Caserta. The art exhibition is good. The English garden is excellent. BTW, you could also find a good restaurant in old town.  more »

  • Royal apartments are great and the gardens are huge - there's even a bus if you don't fancy the walk. Descriptions are in English in some rooms but not all and the cafe is alright. Can easily spend an afternoon here.
  • Beautiful structure with some beautiful rooms. Of the 1200 rooms you can visit only a few. The ceilings and floors are particularly interesting. If possible visit the theatre it realy is worth while. During the period of our visit there was also a small exhibition of modern art. If necessary you can have a snack in the self service bar. The quality of food isn't typical of the high quality of Naples. The gardens are well worth a visit.
  • I would urge you to take a visit to the stunning gardens at the palace. If you're in the vicinity of the palace, make a detour and visit the gardens. The English garden, created in the late 18th century, is a true marvel. I would recommend walking from the palace up the 2km pathway to truly take in all of the beautiful fountains along the way. We did this on a day when the temperature was 37c and I would probably suggest you only do this if you've got water with you and you're in half-decent shape. There is a bus that takes you from the palace up to the Diana fountain (which is amazing) which costs €2.50 each way. It saves a lot of time but you will miss the fountains along the way. When you get to the English garden, I hope you are as captivated by the bath of Venus as I was. It was breathtaking.
  • This is breath taking construction, very well conserved. The audio guides provide rich context and commentary on the structure and contents of the palace. Get your tickets on the main ticket office. The gardens are impressive. There's a bus that provides transportation to and from the beginning of the external gardens for 2.5€ per person. Totally worth it.
  • The most beautiful monument I have visited in all of Italy. The decorated rooms impressed me more than the Vatican Museum (or maybe it was the lack of the crowds). The nicest part, though, is the man made garden and fountains that make a very pleasant walk that culminates in a waterfall. Check their website as they have a few days per year in which the entrance is free
