This fantastic palace and unbelievable gardens are an absolute must see. The place is one gigantic attraction. The gardens and fountains extend for kilometers. Dedicate a day to explore this wonderful place. You will not regret it.

The Reggia di Caserta with its far-flung park is a must for those artlovers who are receptive to baroque (and neoclassical) architecture, arts and gardening. The staircase and main chapel are absolutely magnificent (arguably Vanvitelli's masterpieces) but the interieurs of the state-rooms, although for the most part only completed in the 19th century, do hold their own as well (and...

A truly magnificent place - good fun to hire a bike and cycle around the gardens exploring all the different areas.

I have seen some of the most beautiful sites in Europe but La Reggia in Caserta is surely one of the top draws. The design and finish of the Palace is incredible - hall after hall of the most incredible treasures, all in perfect and original condition. After 3 or 4 hours of drooling over these gems, one goes out... More

Visiting Caserta Palace was an amazing experience. Every room in this grand palace is gloriously decorated and the grounds and gardens are amazing. Give yourself a lot of time... There's a lot of walking!

Wow. The grounds are gorgeous. The artwork is stunning! If you can walk to the top of the waterfall do it! It gives you an amazing perspective! You could spend days here and not even see everything there is to see!

We saw Monty Don's series on Italian gardens on TV and bought the book, we were really interested in its history and we just had to visit this unique, spectacular palace with its massive gardens. In fact, we made Caserta our 'base' from which to visit Naples by train and the surrounding area in a hire car. The sheer scale... More

I was really expecting something better after having seen several other castles in Italy. The castle itself is pretty, but it's run down. There are birds living within the castle, so you'll find feathers and bird droppings within the grand foyer. You can't access the entire castle and many rooms are completely bare (without furnishings, paintings, etc.). Despite this, the... More

Definitely not for summer time, badly kept parks, simplistic layout, dull long walk up the hill to see who knows what. Bicycle rent is good idea but horse or air conditioned car may be even better. Don't risk with kids or seniors. Maybe stop after just looking inside the palace.

Badly signposted. Gardens need some TLC. Palace and waterfall were amazing. Incredible decor. English garden only viewed with a guide which seemed unnecessary.
