Hosts really nice collection of 18thC paintings, furniture, some clothes, antique sculptures, and amazing selection of porcelain. Not to mention a large garden.

“Viva Artemisia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

On the second floor (top floor) in the absolutely furthest corner from the entrance is a small room with one painting: Artemisia's painting of Judith slaying Holofernes. This picture says it all to women who have been abused.

“Plan first or lament your losses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We spent hours using the internet in Australia beforehand planning our arrival in Naples, so we could hit the ground running. The visit to the palace and museum at Capodimonte was a big success. You can use the Artecard to enter the museum. We bought ours at the info point in the Naples Centrale Station. Not all museums listed on the Artecard website have the cards for sale.

We used bus 2M (178 is also Ok) from via Broggia up to Capodimonte. This is the turn-around point for the busses, so if you get on here, you should get a seat. Nevertheless, do wear a moneybelt. Use Google maps to make sure you you know where to get off the bus and ask on the bus as well .The bus stop is at Via Miano. There is a large entrance gate.You walk past a white building and then through some woodland which opens to a red palace. This is it!

The return bus stops opposite on Via Miano. Probavly you will exit the palace from the other side. Be mindful to exit the grounds the same way you came in.

Most parts of the museum are open at any given time, but in order to see everything, you will probably need to make a return visit. It is closed of a Wednesday.

The toilets are on the first floor, just before you reach the royal apartments section., but well hidden. Just ask the museum staff. The staff are are quite friendly. There are usually some exhibitions happening. Very worthwhile to see is the "art-lab" down in the basement where you can see what they have been restoring this year.

The gardens around the palace are extensive and you are allowed to sit on the grass. It is one of the few open areas in Naples, indeed any European city where you can make a picnic.

“High quality exhibits.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

The art is of the highest quality and there is so much of it that we spent the whole day there. Tip - unless you have plenty of time and like tightly squashed buses, take a cab. There is a cafe and shop but they are pretty low-key. The views over the bay are impressive. There is also a park but we didn't explore it as it started raining as we left.
