This is a beautiful Royal Palace with incredible well kept decorations, furnitures and original art. I wish they would protect all of them and the floors with some kind of fiberglass panels. Beautiful marbles and enjoyable gardens.

A group of friends and I visited this palace about a month ago, and enjoyed every bit. A quick 5 minute walk from the train station, it took us about 3 or 4 hours to explore the entire magnificent property. After we visited the beautiful interior, we grabbed delicious pastries and espresso to recharge. We then chose to pay a... More

If you want to see the full extent of the gardens take a taxi. My wife and I decide not to and I can tell you that it is quite a walk. It will take you severl hours to get to the end casade and walk back

It was very easy, quick and cheap to travel to Caserta from Naples and the palace is right next to the train station. Not a huge crowd either which made the whole experience much more enjoyable. I heard the royal palace at Caserta described as the Versailles of Italy and I would fully agree. It was beautiful - vast and... More

The Royal Palace is absolutely one of the most majestic palaces in the World. Maybe only Versailles can be of higher artistic value. While some repair works were undergoing on the facade of the building, the English gardens and the fountains were left in a pathetic degraded state. The fountains were dirty with lichens left uncleared likely for decades... Beautiful... More

A real piece of megalomania which we now can enjoy from. Huge building, huge rooms full of frescoes, paintings and decorations. The gardens are great. You can tour some of the building for free, but it worth going in. Same for the gardens, take a bus tour or rent bikes. Worth 2-3 hours.

The royal palace of Caserta is a masterpiece of Italian artwork. Breathtaking architecture, huge sculptures, classy art, and a wonderful garden with more art to discover. You can truly feel how much work was invested in order to create this beautiful place. Definitely worth a visit when being in Caserta!

Am not sure what all the negative reviews are about, we went yesterday and were amazed at the beauty and workmanship there. It took us hours to see the beautiful gardens and rooms inside. If you get the opportunity to see it, it's well worth your time and just a as all amount of money. Be sure to rent a... More

Easy to get to ample underground parking then it went down hill from there. The toilets in the parking area were filthy and had to pay to use them! The parking area led to the front gardens these were run down and unkept what shame as they could be a magnificent first impression. The front of the palace is being... More
