The most important library in southern Italy. Has about two million books, manuscripts and a collection of papyrus scrolls from Herculaneum. The decorative nature makes it compelling to idle. Lovely gardens outside.

Visited here after the Palazzo Reale as it's at the back, on the right hand side of the courtyard - green door. Entry is free with ID. Apart from the awesome Reading Room in walnut and gold , the ornate ceilings and doors and the vast shelves of antiquarian books, there was a Rossini exhibition on. Really enjoyed the exhibition, especially the documents/scores signed by the man himself and the portraits of the famous singers ( 1809 to 1816) who had been key to his success. An atmosphere of tranquility, as you would expect . Well worth a short visit and you can eat your lunch outside in the gardens afterwards.

utterly fascinating and wonderful serene gardens to relax in If the top floor is open, check out the globe gallery Unfortunately as I found out, you're not actually allowed to take down most of the books.

We visited the National Library (one of several with this name in Italy) on our way to the Officina dei Papiri (see separate review). The Library is a find. You need to show ID in order to get in, and you should probably ask for a map, as the place is a labyrinth of small rooms, large rooms, corridors, hallways, chocked full of old books and old stuff. and most of these rooms, since the Library is housed in a wing of what used to be the Royal Palace, are decorated with delicate frescoes, or filled with intaglio-adorned furniture. My favourite pieces are several world globes dating to 400 years ago or so (see photo). One puzzling aspect of the place is the complete trust placed upon the visitor to not touch and not damage the items. I just hope nobody ever abuses of such trust. Not mentioned in any tourbook (to my knwoledge) is the fact that in the elevated gardens between the Library and the back of the Royal Palace one can take a quiet and cool break from the hard day of sightseeing, enjoy the snack you had the foresight to pack while sitting in the shade and admiring an iconic view (see photograph) of the Maschio Angioino (castle) across the bustling car traffic.
