  • Left there, not valued and many times too haphazard. Shame because it is a diamond in the rough with the different sections that would become a museum itself in other Nations. Much more charming of the Royal Palace Museum. Shame, really too bad. breaks my heart seeing that I live it every day.

  • I visited this place on the occasion of the event "Domenica di carta", completely free and with which I saw the show with guided tour, entitled "Arcadia vs Nature". The Guide explained that cultural movement that has affected all forms of artistic expression, literary and flilosofiche between ' 600 and ' 700, extolling the bucolic life (pastoral), based on simplicity and daily joy. The temporary exhibition, was concentrated in a single room where they had been stationed shrines where were the texts of Sannazzaro, father of the movement in Italy, and more testimonials divided by geographical area, the dawn of the movement up to Windward of agriculture late eighteenth and early nineteenth century, between rational. The library contains a priceless heritage of books making it the third largest in Italy after Rome and Florence. The current headquarters in Palazzo Reale (and from where you can enjoy a wonderful panorama) was strongly desired by Benedetto Croce negli anni ' 20, who at the time was Minister of education. Over the years it has been enriched with collections from private libraries, Royal and ecclesiastical ones. One of the most valuable is the one of the manuscripts of Leoparti, guarded by his friend Ranieri and then donated to the library. This section, however, is not easily accessible. You have to ask what is open to the public. Another exciting section is dedicated to the Duchess of Orleans Elena d'Aosta, complete with a large permanent photographic exhibition of shots taken from the same Duchess during his travels. Beautiful furnishings and antiques as the music rest vertically and horizontally and two globe hand-painted. It was also possible to visit the restoration workshop. All free of charge.

  • This is lovely
  • A gem of Neapolitan pizza inside the Royal Palace in the plebiscite. Huge silent library organized and easily accessible to all. Free but above all comfortable. A must to visit and to take advantage of if you are looking for a perfect place to study

  • Huge library, open to the public with free admission. Nice interior. There are many historical books, and some of these deal with the history of Naples

  • For research and study in peace and quiet this is the perfect location in the Centre of Naples. Study and concentrate in a historic place.
