Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web
The 18th century Capodimonte Museum offers an extensive collection of Neapolitan art set within a grand palace. Before entering, wander through the park surrounding the building. This was once a forested hunting ground for Naples' Bourbon rulers. Inside, marvel at paintings and other pieces dating from the 13th century--perhaps the richest collection of Neapolitan School artworks in the world.

  • We picked this as the second of 2 sites to see in Napoli. It was quite a trip to get up the hill. The building and grounds are charming, however I didn't find anything special in the artwork. The Cara...  read more »
  • The Museum is vast, you'd lose a day, driving, if you decide to take it, it is better because it will direct you on the most fundamental things to see such as the Farnese collection, the Egyptian Museum, the ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii and the famous statue of Hercules

  • We visited the Museum after having wandered in Pompeii. The rooms are spacious and the collection of Egypt is beautiful. Too bad that the numismatic collection was closed.

  • The staff were wonderful. From the young lady at the ticket office to the young lady at information who not only called a taxi but arranged for it to come through the gate when she saw my cane. The museum is beautiful with works very well displayed. I think the Michelin Guide should up their rating to a 3 star rating. .I had a wonderful experience.
  • Beautiful palace overlooking Naples containing an amazing art collection. I spent all day here. Because of it's location the gallery is also very uncrowded and peaceful and the grounds are lovely too. A breath of fresh air after the madness of the city below.
  • One of the most important museums in the world with some masterpieces that cannot be missed. Check out Caravaggio! But my favourite remains Bruegel.
  • One of the best museums in the world! The Farnese collection on the 1st floor is just a great lesson of Western Art History! The Caravaggio on the 2nd floor, La Flagellazione di Cristo, is a must-see too, probably, the best Caravaggio of all. Enjoy also the surrounding area, the luxurious park of Capodimonte.
  • This museum houses the painting, tapestry, furniture and porcelain collections of the National museum. It is housed in a royal palace and the grounds comprise a wonderful park. The collection is quite large, so make a plan for your tour. Some of the rooms are not open at all hours, due to Italian budgetary constraints. Definitely worth the effort of getting there.
