Capodimonte Museum, Naples
(4.3/5 based on 1,400+ 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. Try to book your tour ahead of time, because tickets sell out quickly. Arrange to visit Capodimonte Museum and other attractions in Naples using our Naples tourist route planner.

  • Beautiful the Palace of Capodimonte. Beautiful rooms with notable frescoes by Titian, Botticelli and the flagellation by Caravaggio. Not to mention the collections of porcelain and figurines of Capodimonte. It is also surrounded by a forest which was the hunting seat of King Ferdinand of Bourbon. Well worth a visit.

  • What should be one of the jewels of the city always leaves blown away to neglect and approximation. The rooms dedicated to the 19th century can be visited only by appointment (tel 0817499130) but you only discover when it is too late to do so. The rooms of the 17th century, reason of the visit for many, can be visited only fixed and you need to wait for an agent that is to open the rift and who will follow you all the way-to be performed implicitly as quickly as possible. Meanwhile, the halls echo with the clamor of the same staff that moaning about being undersized, you group by shouting as themselves in an alley.

  • Extensive collection with a number of masterpieces. Beautiful setting inside and outside. Accessible by public transport. Can easily spend there half a day. Quite a contrast to the bustle of the city. Enjoyable.
  • 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.
  • A very nice garden to escape the hectic city for a bit, plus a great view of the city, plus some great art pieces = 5 stars
  • Wow! Beautiful museum in a beautiful palace. So many rooms and things to see! Some rooms where closed : (
  • The artwork on display was wonderful with works from Michelangelo to Caravaggio along with other European masters.
