Absolutely incredible! The gardens are fabulous, the grounds are breathtaking and the inner rooms are a true reflection of how amazing Italian art is. 12EUR entrance to visit the entire palace. the shuttle from the palace to the gardens (3km one way) is 2.50EUR return trip. Had this been in the northern part of Italy, it would have been absolutely... More

This attraction is not on the usual tourist trail but is well worth the visit. It looks quite unkempt as you approach it but the ceiling frescoes in the rooms are beautiful. One drawback is that there is no audio guide in English, but in each of the rooms there is an English description. The best thing about the palace... More

If palaces and grand buildings are your thing then this place would be of interest. We were advised by an English lady while at Herculaneum, so thank you to her. It is signposted off the Motorway, brown sign "regio" though there are other brown signs for attractions in the area as well. Caserta North exit. Drivers in Caserta seemed a... More

Spent two days exploring the garden and palace (free entry with Artecard 365) the audio guide is worth having - the bookshop had no guidebooks in English making this essential

In Italian it is called Reggia di Caserta Palazzo Reale (close to train station), which rivals Versailles - 1200 rooms, 1790 windows, 34 staircases, 250m facade and marble of every colour throughout. It was huge, spectacular.... I couldn't even imagine what it was like in its day. Such beauty at every turn. It was a delight to visit and not... More

Wow. What a grand palace. We first took a walk of the grounds and fountains and then finished with a tour of the apartments. The grounds are spacious and a very pleasant walk. Note that there are several WC s out there. The palace is quite stunning from afar. The apartments are well worth the tour cost. The number and... More

the palace itself is very beautiful but was very disappointed by the fact that the metro station was unsafe and to top it all the toilets were occupied by young couples!

The Royal Palace at Caserta is one of the most extraordinary attractions any traveller is likely to visit, but it is also a wasted opportunity for the Italian people and Italian tourism. The engineering, the architecture, the art and the building features are brilliant and that is probably an understatement. The sheer size of the palace archiving the length of... More

The Palace is incredibly huge and beautiful. Unfortunately for me, I went during some of its renovation time. Half of the exterior of the palace was under construction, so I ended up not taking any photos of the Palace itself. The gardens, on the other hand, were perfect and breathtaking. Definitely make the trip!

1. On the territory of the museum there are African immigrants, selling clothes. 2. The palace outside is in a very unkempt condition. Even though there are several beautiful rooms in it and interesting exhibits (along with broken and dirty tiles on the floor), the stairs and the entrance are in the best condition and are the most impressive parts....
