Capodimonte Museum, Naples

(1,700+ reviews on the web)
Art Museum
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.

  • 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.
