+ The Palace is very impressive mainly by it's size (1200 Rooms) Many of the rooms which can be visited are hardly furnished, but there are very impressive paintings on the ceilings. The gardens are much more impressive than the Palace itself. Do not miss the English Garden. Best is to take the bus (Eur 2,50) to the top of... More

We visited this palace a few days ago and we were enchanted by its magnificence! The garden is enormous and well kept plus the royal apartments are amazing! Every room is at the same time different from the others but in harmony with tge environment! The only thing that I will improve is the experience introducing virtual guides or more... More

The palace is hige and amazing, the park simply incredible. The same feeling when you try to speak with someone: people that don't want work and very ignorant. Zero languages, zero courtesy. The people on hourses are almost criminal from the street...incredible!

We visited en route to the airport, killing time for our flight later in the day. As other reviewers have said, the first impression is disappointing with scrubby lawns, lots of scaffolding and poorly signposted routes to the car parks. There seemed to be a number of unofficial carparks with dubious looking characters waving confused foreign drivers onto 'car parks'... More

First impressions mean a lot...the front lawn lacks grooming and the outside scalfolding is not appealing. The walk through the park is a healthy hike. The lakes and fountains are nice but lack TLC as they are dirty and the surrounding grass lacks manicure. As we approach the far end we realize that what appears to be an upright column... More

The sheer size of the palace and the grounds that surround it leave you breathless. Not to mention the opulence you find Inside. Marble everywhere - grandiose marble staicases, detailed marble floors, walls and ceillings. The rooms are huge and many have paintings on the arched ceillings. This is an architectural gem and unfortunately, preservation requires renovation and scaffolding, but... More

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
