Villa Floridiana, Naples

(2.8/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • The Villa is a pleasant Classical building set in a large Park overlooking the seafront. The ceramics collection is fair,labeling is awkwardly available only on room boards and not next to the objects...  more »
  • A neoclassical royal palace beautifully set in a park overlooking Naples. Inside very interesting collection of China from the times of Bourbons.  more »
  • We came back a few weeks ago at the Floridiana. Metro line 1 can reach easily (Vanvitelli), covering a hundred meters. I haven't we used foot. The Park hasn't changed much, a small difference we cordon off areas or closed to the public, perhaps undergoing maintenance/restoration. Hygiene so and so: some areas are really clean, there is a surplus of rubbish and waste (garbage bins are too small, would be doubled in number or "magnified" in form as with a high turnout becomes difficult trashing correctly). Walking through the Woods after various rides (in which we find the Museum and a bar) leading to the main attraction: the staircase with a view of the sea. A Pearl worth the highest grades. Finish off the stairs, a beautiful Fountain with turtles and fish. To follow the breathtaking view which includes Capri and a view that goes from the Castel Dell ' Ovo to the Hill of Posillipo. A fantastic Park with his sight, including Saint Martin and the Parco Virgiliano, must be visited in order to enjoy 360-degree views of the city. To restore and keep all of the above: should be reopened some areas (it seems the gazebo area, very beautiful, it was closed) and better manage the hygiene of high turnout. Plus the possibility to introduce food and drink (and please be kind enough to respect the environment). For the rest we are talking about a must visit attraction that in itself deserves the 5 stars.

  • 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
