  • Naples is a museum where discover small and large jewelry of ancient splendor of what was once the capital of the Kingdom. I had often seen, from the outside, Villa Pignatelli which stood between lots of green. I finally got to see his Majesty, visiting the entire building, including the Department of carriages of the time. Villa Pignatelli is considered a House-Museum where are depicted various styles: at the rear are of Doric columns modeled on the Pompeian peristilli and in the main, lobby, neoclassical style. The design of the villa was commissioned by Admiral Ferdinand Acton in 1826 to the Neapolitan architect Pietro Valente. Later the House passed to Rothschild banker who ceded later and definitively to the principe Diego Aragona Pignatelli Cortes. In 1952 the Princess Rosina, sold the stable Italian State. The salons are immense and glitzy parties were owners and guests could enjoy the large garden. I imagined all the guests who were attending with outfits and dancing accompanied by period music by candlelight. Beautiful damask chairs and sofas. In the living room Windows with vases and glassware and stemware of the era. Upstairs are the bedrooms with toilets. There is a marble basin for Prince and another for the Princess. This House-Museum reflects the canons of the era, all with great pomp and sobriety. I felt involved, imagining how it could be life. Next to the villa we find the Museum of carriages with all the trappings and personnel figures. Beautiful and carriages of all types. A new world for me, accustomed to the roar of the engines. Almost felt the patter of horses and the people who ascended and descended. We are talking about a century ago where they cruised in great luxury and poor people who had to make ends meet to survive. It was a unique experience that has enriched me inwardly, and making me realize once more that Naples is a city to be discovered with its contradictions. but always to love. Who's coming to Naples, don't miss to visit this gem of antiquity and will understand the magnitude of the history of Naples

  • Surrounded by a beautiful park with plants, overlooking the Riviera di Chiaia, the villa has amazing Interior for the richness of the fixtures and furnishings. Some rooms on the upper floor are home to art exhibitions. Very well organized the carriage Museum, with pieces of great merit and some curiosities. It is a destination that I consider a must for anyone visiting Naples, also for the interesting history of which was the star. Well worth the modest price of admission and kids get in free.

  • Beautiful villa located on the waterfront, both French bourgeois families such as the aaprtenuta Rothschild, which in local noble families like Pignatelli. The ground floor houses rooms still well preserved and decorated according to the taste of the time, the first Prime houses temporary exhibitions. Remarkable collection of carriages, which also gives much information about a conveyance from the past. Careful though, because many of the collections that are still on the official site of the villa, are no longer present. The thing I was most impressed with is that the number of keepers present is far higher than the number of visitors ...

  • Didn't visitit, because The villa itself Is closed till October.
  • Even in this wonderful place, when you pay for your ticket, you don't provide any paper that you be your guide inside the mansion/Museum. It's true, you pay € 5.00 per person though, like abroad, it would be preferable if there was even a small pamphlet that face a little guide to the visitor. Inside is very well maintained furniture and fine materials. What amazed me were the views that the Princess has received, during his stay at the villa. The photos are stored in a room of the villa and refer nearly all Royal families. Funny even the menus written in French that accompanied the gala dinners. The villa consists of the apartments where they are on the ground floor, all rooms in the home, the room devoted to the carriages, outside the villa but always inserted in the museum complex, and finally the second floor (when we visited us the villa there was nothing) exhibitions of various kinds. It's definitely an experience to do, given that you are walking by a promenade envied by many.
