This was one of the most amazing places I have been to. The gardens were beautiful, the walk was long but not too strenuous. The inside of the palace was filled with beautiful art and furnishings. The parking was expensive, although I'm sure there is cheaper. It was worth every penny. Simply stunning!!!!

We took a train to Caserta from Rome, and the trip was about 1 hour. A ticket cost 7.70 Euro one way. It's not true that you can see anything there without paying entrance fee. You do need to buy a ticket for 12 Euro to get inside to see park and the palace. You can pay 10 Euros for... More

We where here on a beautiful day, not too hot (25*C.), at the beginning of october. We loved the long walk from the palace till the waterfall at the end ( it takes 1 hour!! One way!) At the end is a nice english garden, look for the very nice 19th century "roman ruins" in it). (You can easily walk... More

We started with the gardens, which alone will take several hours as it involves a few kilometres, plus the English Garden at the end. Unfortunately, it all looks as if it needs a bit of money spending on it; it seems the minimum is done to keep it open. Despite what was said at the official entrance, I believe it... More

I can only assume that this place was so quiet in September because you have to make an effort to get here from Naples or other areas. We made a special trip from Positano to get here. Unfortunately due to traffic around the outskirts of Naples it took us 2 hours to get here. It should only have been a... More

If stupefying late-Baroque grandeur is your thing, Caserta is worth the 6 Euro round trip from Naples Centrale. The best part of the palace architecturally, the stair and central vestibule, can be seen without paying the admission to the "Apartments" which are really something if you are into décor, but after a while, all ceiling frescoes do begin to resemble...

This was our third visit to the Royal Palace. It is impressive in size and in art display. You have the opportunity to take your time to admire all the details without being pushed by large crowds. It is not as well cared for as it should. It does need some repairs and up keeping. The gardens are massive but... More

Caserta Reggia is a Baroque Palace very nice to visit. I recommend to stop by if you visit Naples. Kind of a copy of the one in Versailles, in fact I think Louis' XVI wife got it done for summer house, what a summer house! The day I visited entrance fee was free but I think they usually charge. Apart... More

Worthy of the designation. We took our bikes, but you can also rent them on site (4 Euros per hr for regular bikes, 6 euros for electric bikes)-there are no signs at the ticket gates that say bikes can be rented. You only see the rental spot when you get near the (terrible) cafeteria. The bikes are extremely useful as... More

Caserta Royal Palace is giant. Great stairway, fine decorated ceilings. Really unexpected beauty. During our visit there was also an exhibition of modern Italian art and black and white photography from Paris in the seventies. The garden is fine for a stroll when your head is full of images of the palace.
