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....

Unfortunately we were so pushed for time the day we visited that we chose between viewing the palace or the gardens. I chose to view the gardens and I was so pleased I did! We visited in November and it was like a beautiful summers day, it was all so picturesque. It was quite a long walk though being so... More

Yadda-Yadda..... five floors of castle with four coartyards, 1200 rooms, 34 staircases and 1742 windows, gives this palace the right to crow "that this is the Versailles of the Bourbons" The sheer scale has to be observed from the rear facade which overlooks a park covering 300 acres offering up grassy parterre, natural woodlands and an English garden. Its amazing... More

The Palace with the Grand staircase makes you feel like Cinderella at the ball. The grandness of the palace is only diminished by the cascading fountains and gardens which stretch for over 2km. Best way to experience this is to hire push bikes and marvel at the vista from the top of the Cascades looking towards the palace and Mt... More

This palace is quite beautiful with lovely frescos, paintings, furniture and architecture. Grand on a grand scale. The gardens and waterfalls are not to be missed.
