This enormous Palace of 1200+ rooms just for the bourbon kings holidays could have been spectacular with its marble floors and expensive decorated panels. However, it was a nightmare visit, From the start we were accosted by sellers of holiday tat and then jostled by thousands of local school children at the entrance. The tour through the rooms was not... More

This castle was overwhelming. They call it the second Versailles and it is not an exaggeration. To say that it is impressive would be an understatement, Everything from the art, the marble statues the gold gilding the furnishings,the floors and the ceilings was awe inspiring. It was raining when we were there therefore we couldn't walk through the gardens but... More

If you just close your eyes and imagine what it was like for the fortunate to live like this. Then you open your eyes to find how run down the grounds and interior are and you feel overwhelmed by sadness. It's more of a local spot where locals can go walk the grounds for free. I recommend you renting bikes... More

Poor, neglected and dirty gardens. One can see that once it was beautiful. A ticket cost 12 euros. Not worth the price.

For 12 euro you can spend the day visiting the Royal apartments and the magical Royal Gardens. Hint. If you intend to visit the Royal apartments go early to beat the hoards of school children and tourist that decent on the place throughout the day. Once finished visiting the Palace you can spend the rest of the time you allocate... More

Absolutely incredible! The gardens are fabulous, the grounds are breathtaking and the inner rooms are a true reflection of how amazing Italian art is. 12EUR entrance to visit the entire palace. the shuttle from the palace to the gardens (3km one way) is 2.50EUR return trip. Had this been in the northern part of Italy, it would have been absolutely... More

This attraction is not on the usual tourist trail but is well worth the visit. It looks quite unkempt as you approach it but the ceiling frescoes in the rooms are beautiful. One drawback is that there is no audio guide in English, but in each of the rooms there is an English description. The best thing about the palace... More

If palaces and grand buildings are your thing then this place would be of interest. We were advised by an English lady while at Herculaneum, so thank you to her. It is signposted off the Motorway, brown sign "regio" though there are other brown signs for attractions in the area as well. Caserta North exit. Drivers in Caserta seemed a... More
