Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Campania / Province of Naples / Naples / Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte
The 18th century Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte 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.

The exhibits during my visits were awesome. I enjoyed the sculptures and contemporary art most. There are thousands of paintings and they were beautiful as well. I found the stitch work the most impressive. They look like rugs... These are ginormous and span an entire wall with high ceilings. Each of them tell a story. But the details are what captured me most.
Both the museum and the park were a wonderful surprise. The museum houses a great collection that is very well displayed. It was almost empty of visitors at the end of the day so it felt like we were at a private viewing. The park is beautifully maintained and is a convenient spot to get some respite from the Neapolitan heat. One thing to note is that the café does not accept cards.
Look to spend at least four hours walking through and reading up on some of the most eye catching displays. If your smartphone has the space and your cell network has the reception, I suggest downloading their museum app guide. On the business side, it's a great idea that they offer this instead of providing headsets and hand carry narratives. So, good luck if you're a foreigner with an outside network ;)
The museum is beautiful and Management is doing an incredible job with it. While I was there, we also had the pleasure and surprise to listen to a stellar pianist playing in front of all the art... Truly unique, must visit.
Beautiful large open space. Lovely walk. I had forgotten how popular these ornaments were.
