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.

  • 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.

  • The green in Naples, in contrast to other European cities, like London, is very little and often overgrown. It seems incredible, but cities that many Italians feel leaden gray and are laughing and full of green. London is a perfect example (try it!). Naples is the opposite extreme. The Green is short and all join hands to destroy it (especially politicians). La Floridiana, green lung of the historical vomeresi, is a small exception, perhaps because it kept (at a certain time the gates close). Gosh even la Floridiana is not perfect; There are dirty places and the maintenance of the paths and trees leaves much to be desired. However in terrifying green in Naples (where?) definitely deserves some consideration. About panorama; What is enjoyed at certain points in the ex-Bourbon villa is breathtaking. And speaking of Bourbon; are those who have left us the few things worth in Naples. What can we say? Maybe they were better than Renzi & co.?

  • In my second visit to the beautiful city of Naples I discovered this Villa: a must if you are fans of antique ceramics. There is one collection exaggerated, well laid out with functional legends withdrawn at the beginning of each room. All in an extremely bright, clean, with a spectacular view, in green parks (which could, of course, be a bit more polished). To see!!!

  • 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
