Once you travel up out of Naples to the Capodimonte area you know you are letting yourself in for something special. The Farnese collection is excellent and it gives a very good overview of a period of history when italian art was developing and changing. Don't miss their Caravaggio, but they have so many other special italian artists it is worth it even without seeing this picture.
The building itself is an ex-palace, so lots of grand marble staircases and huge rooms. The only downside is that once you get the ineviatble school and tour groups the sound levels really rise as acoustics were not set up for lots of chattering voices all at once.
