Described as the Italian Versailles, this beautiful reggia certainly worth a visit. Do not be discouraged by the route to get there: as often in Southern Italy, the surroundings are dirty and decadent, and even the first impact with the Reggia itself might be disappointing, as it is nearly totally covered by scaffoldings. Still, the visit in the palace goes... More

We have toured a lot of castles but this was our first palace Wow! We started our tour with the garden. We rented bikes for an hour. It was a joy to ride bikes surrounded by this beautiful scenery. The bikes weren't in the best condition & the gears wouldn't change. So we ended up pushing them the last third... More

As you walk up to the exterior of the gardens and castle you are immediately turned off by the overwhelming scaffolding and unkept grass. After paying a hefty 12 euro, you walk through the equally unimpressive inner courtyard which has more scaffolding. Don't worry, it does get better. The over a mile stretch of you fountain and walkway on the... More

This is one of the best architectural example in the world. From here architect Vanvitelli started the Neoclassical style (Neoclassico). This is the trait d'union between the past and the future. It deserves great attention by visitors and also by public administration. With its surprisingly garden, it's a jewel we can't miss. Let's support the great "Reggia di Caserta" to... More

They say the palace was created to rival Versailles in France. From what we saw the inside of the palace was absolutely beautiful. From the throne room to the chapel the entire palace was amazing. If you are in the Naples area I would try and check this place out. The palace gardens were also nice although some sections were... More

We were a little apprehensive at visiting as we had heard reports of deterioration. We were pleasantly misinformed. If you get over the exterior scaffolding, Caserta is fabulous. The staircase ( as in Star Wars) and entrances are magnificent. The Royal apartments are extensive , with ceiling frescoes are superior to many European palaces. It's history is eccentric and the...

We did a side trip to Caserta with a friend who acted as a guide. It is a lot of walking but the statues & waterfalls are well worth it. The pitch of each waterfall is different. Listen closely :-)

We stayed Caserta only for one day, we are happy that we visited this castle. First look of this castle,considering that there were lots of restoration work was going on(which was good) was not so impressive. This is as big as Versailles but unlike other such big castle, not lots of tourists were there but because of that you can... More

The Royal Palace at Caserta is very impressive indeed for a 200-year edifice. One can spend a whole day walking the palace grounds. It is enjoyable using carts at €10 per person to tour the extensive palace grounds Elaborate restoration activities were on going at the time of visit but we found the tour exciting and the palace well-appointed
