The building is a Versalles' like palace, with interesting ceil paintings and sculpture walls. A 3 km avenue with monumental fountains leads you to an artificial waterfall, and to the English Garden, but you don't need to walk all this way, there is a minibus service.

In my family, achieving the age of 11 meant that you could go on a trip anywhere in the world with your grandmother! I chose the Holy Land and my grandmother threw in a Mediterranean cruise as well. Caserta Palace is unforgettable, and 2 years ago, I took my wife and the twins to see Pompeii and Caserta and Pisa... More

If you haven't seen enough marble on your Italy vacation, then this is an amazing stop! The building is absolutely stunning! I'm not going to say the palace is "spectacular" because it's incomplete and lacking in ways. It was started and then never finished. (It's huge! Add political change and the fact that they just never needed the full size... More

We enjoyed a horse and carriage ride around the grounds which I would definitely recommend if you are pressed for time or if it's hot - we were both!! The gentleman who brought us around on the horse had his 6 year old cousin, Aniello, with him. Aniello was amazing as he told us of the grounds and its history... More

We visited the palace with big garden - we read it is like Versailles, but it is unfortunatelly sad story. You pay 12€ for the ticket. The garden is really big, so you can take a shuttle bus from the start to the end (2.5€) - which is really good. The condition of park is really terrible! The English garden... More

Impressive entrance, marble galore. Inside rooms are lushly decorated, yet slightly disappointing. A bit of everything thrown together. The gardens are not well kept. You have to take a bus for an extra 2.5 euros to get to the interesting part. A lot still to be done!

Walking about a stately home in baking heat is not my usual favourite past time by any means. However, certain areas of this palace simply made my jaw drop. The garden with it's stupendous water features and statues is like nothing I've ever seen and the architecture of the interior is ranges from the beautiful to the decadently ostentatious. If...

Very nice castle with a lot of history, however I was shocked to see the gardens and the grounds are not maintained and the grass is a foot high, very disappointed

Few travellers take the time to visit the Palace of Caserta, which merits only half a page in guide books despite being the biggest royal palace in the world, and filming location for Queen Amidala's palace in Star Wars. Unfortunately the palace's ridiculously whopping size and low visitor numbers leads to its slight air of neglect - the acres of... More

What an amazing hidden Gem. This place is breathtaking. I would rate this close to the sistine chapel. Amazing.
