Villa Floridiana, Naples
(2.8/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Take a stroll through Villa Floridiana, a large, lush park overlooked by a picturesque, 19th-century Neoclassical residence. Originally built as a vacation property for King Ferdinand I and his wife, the park and villa are decorated by planted oaks, pines, palms, cypresses and a large selection of flowers in the gardens--the work of Friedrich Dehnhardt, director of the botanical gardens. The park offers views of the nearby bay, and wide paved pathways intertwine among dense trees. A grand staircase leads you the front door of the residence, which today houses a museum of Italian art. Villa Floridiana is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Naples Edition.

  • For visitors to Naples a stage cannot be missing in the upper part of the city to Vomero. You can get there easily from the lower part of the city with the new line of Metro or one of three funicular railways. Once here you can reach easily the Park of the Villa Floridiana that besides the Villa the same gift of Ferdinand de Bourbon to his second wife Lucia Migliaccio, also houses the National Museum of ceramics: Duke of Martina. The whole complex is surrounded by a beautiful park with a spectacular lookout over the city of Napoli. Besides visiting the splendid Villa and Museum that collects the most prestigious brands of European porcelain and other small works of art, you can relax with a nice walk in the Park.

  • The park is beautiful, with paths and benches. The area in front of the villa is (or at least was this morning) filled with toddlers and their mothers, grandmothers and nannies. We enjoyed watching th...  more »
  • Nice Park open to the public at the end of which is a ceramics Museum with admission fee. A round, although fast, X see precious objects even though they are not my thing.

  • Beautiful view
  • At present it is far too neglected. Many areas are pretty much a bunch of Scrubs harshened. Belvedere practically nullified the neglect to plants and fences that have been applied. To act immediately to return the pomp and the potential at a place originally beautiful.

  • It was once larger. Now it's closed in part because it was dangerous. But anyway a nice green place in a very densely populated district

  • The reopening (even partial) has finally given an acceptable size. We wait trusting openness of space still closed
