Royal Palace of Caserta (Reggia di Caserta)

Viale Douhet, 2/a, Caserta CE, 81100

The Basics

The 18th-century Royal Palace (Reggia di Caserta) was built by the architect Luigi Vanvitelli for the Bourbon kings of Naples. It sits majestically on a hill overlooking its 300 acres of undulating grounds, including ornate fountains and water features and the English Garden, one of the most important botanical gardens in Europe. The palace, inspired by Versailles in France and similarly opulent structures in Madrid, includes 1,200 rooms on five floors, including royal apartments, the Throne Room, the Palatine Chapel, and the Grand Staircase, all sumptuously decorated with frescoes, marble, and gold leaf. The Royal Palace and park are among the most popular attractions in the region of Campania; the best way to fully appreciate its architecture and history is by taking a private guided tour of the palace and its beautiful gardens.

Wonderful Tour
We really enjoyed our 3 hour tour. Without the tour, I don’t think we would have truly appreciated the historical and artistic aspects of the Royal Palace.

This is a beautiful tour. The garden is a must. Be prepared to walk 4+ miles. There are also water filling stations along the way and a bathroom at the end of the garden as well as in the palace.

Caserta Royal Palace: Day Trip from Naples
Very beautiful and not to be missed. Take the bus up to the top fountain and walk down. You can stay in the shade along the roadway or walk in the roadway if it is not too hot. A lovely walk with lots of photo ops.

I have only one disappointment, as you sold tickets, though it was a free admission day. The palace and especially the gardens and fountains were worth seeing.

Caserta Royal Palace Entrance Ticket
The expansive gardens and beautiful fountains are stunning. Be prepared to walk or grab the bus or horse and buggy. The palace itself is an awesome experience in every room. Lavishly decorated room after room with paintings on the ceilings and gold decorations. There are also many original pieces of furniture and artwork that astound. Well worth a visit.

Caserta Royal Palace: Day Trip from Naples
Seamless day trip & entrance to amazing royal palace and gardens outside of Naples. If you have extra time in Naples, this is a great alternative!
