Villa Floridiana, Naples

(220+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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 »
  • One of the most fascinating parks in Naples. Unfortunately it's partially closed, but I hope it will be restored to its full prestige ASAP.  more »

  • 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
