Villa Floridiana, Naples

3.0
#19 of 36 in Museums in Naples
Historic Site Specialty Museum
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.

  • This morning I was at the Floridiana after a lot of time no was soaked, he was a great surprise to have to review this place held in extremely well. Very green and so fresh. I recommend it to all people who pass from Naples.

  • From this villa you can admire the Gulf of Naples from different perspectives. Striking is the fountain with the turtles, the belvedere and the ceramics Museum

  • Green Park in the Vomero is placed near the terminus of the funicular station (closed for years) that can be reached by subway (stop Vanvitelli) offers a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Naples. At a glance embraces the entire Gulf from Mergellina and Posillipo in Sorrento with Capri and Anacapri. The view alone is worth the trouble of a dirt and many steps

  • Not worth the way! Most of the park is closed without further notice why and if it's going to open again. The rest of the park is scruffy and with not enough benches. Would be a good spot to escape from the city but this so called park is a joke
  • Very nice place ,,, an area for relaxing ,, a beautiful fountain with colored fishes and turtles ,,, with the best view over Napoli bay
  • a beautiful green park for a quiet respite from the chaos
  • A nice oasis of scilence on top of the city in the elegant Vomero district.
  • Rich in historical heritage and a fabulous sea view, with Capri in the distance

Where to stay in Naples

Naples' lodging options include everything from turn-of-the-century historical mansions to hip boutique hotels. For a five-star experience in the heart of town, book a centrally located luxury hotel. Less expensive but just as comfortable, traditional inns just outside the central area offer peaceful comfort, private parking, and private outdoor space ideal for quiet dinners and small parties. If you are looking for a less urban experience and prefer to stay in a leafy neighborhood, consider the city's residential suburbs.
