With the tour of the Royal Palace of Caserta you can witness the unbridled lust, refinement, love of beauty and patronage of the arts of the Bourbons, the last royal family of the Kingdom of Naples who lived there.
This experience is totally private and you can decide your pickup time and place. You will discover one of the largest buildings erected in Europe during the 18th century, considered the "Versailles of Italy". The Royal Palace was built by Vanvitelli and completed by his son.
It was located in Caserta, as the city was considered as a strategic point, protected both from the sea and the hinterland, but still close to Naples. Inside the building there are 1200 rooms reserved for the royal family, troops and guests. The furnishings are original and date back to the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
The tour of the Royal Palace of Caserta is designed for those who want to know the richness of the structure and furnishings that allowed it to be named UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. However, what distinguishes the Royal Palace from other royal houses is the garden, more than 3 km long. There are Italian and English gardens, adorned with magnificent fountains including the Ceres Fountain in Carrara marble. The long avenue finally ends with a large waterfall: turning around you will have a splendid view of the entire residence in the complex.
It was also the location of international film shootings such as Star Wars, Mission Impossible, Angels&Demons, Casino Royale. The palace is an architectural and engineering masterpiece that envies nothing of the most magnificent royal residences in Europe. The tour of the Royal Palace of Caserta has a total duration of 2 hours and 30 minutes.
