This former royal villa is now a small museum and conference centre with an attractive landscaped garden. It was originally built for an englishman, Sir John Acton at the end of the eighteenth century. The coach collection is worth the trip alone.

This house, in the middle of a park (most Italian houses have their gardens in the center) gives some idea of aristocratic living in Naples in earlier centuries. The house is lovely and well-preserved. But the really interesting part is the museum of "carrozze", i.e.,...More
