If you are going in expecting Versailles you will be disappointed. If you go in just to experience it this palace is truly spectacular. The grounds are beautiful with their lakes and waterfalls. The palace is wonderful in its simplicity. Though don't let that put you off, it is still a palace and while it is simple compared to others... More

We spent almost an entire day visiting this beautiful palace ... and we enjoyed every single minute. From the huge garden distributed on different levels where every single one has something new and more exciting then the previous one, till the royal apartments where you end up feeling overwhelmed in front of so much history stored here. Was a wonderful... More

It is absolutely stunning. If you are in caserta , for sure it's the first thing to see. You need a whole day to see it, you have to visit the inside as well the outside of the palace. Personally i think that the big garden is one of the best gardens i have ever seen in my life, we... More

The architecture is astounding. The gardens are beyond your imagination. The museum.......meh. Recommend renting the bicycles for the gardens because it is a long walk and you will want to see it all.

We were advised to have a look at this place as it was described as a mini Versailles. Well, we started with the gardens which we found to be very disappointing and had a distinctly unfinished and unloved air. We then sort of wandered inside, a little unsure of what we might find next. What a surprise we had! The... More

This palace was built to show off, the design brief was 'build something bigger than Versailles', and they did. It is huge. The five anti-rooms, and the throne room itself are just fabulous. The very biggest and best of the day, designed to impress, and it still works. We visited late November, and the park was closed, but it was... More

We visited the Palace on a beautiful day in late November and was really surprised as this was not anywhere on our 'must visit' list. This is like a mini Versailles but really gives you a good perspective of palace living by the royals of the day. We were told there are over 1,000 rooms at the palace though only... More
