I am endlessly nostalgic for the Italy of my youth. Come to Caserta, which still offers an authentic Italian experience. Apart from the wonders of the Reggia, the medieval city, Caserta Vecchia, is remarkable.

Don’t miss a meal in the garden of Antica Osteria Massa. This elegant family run establishment since 1848 offers exceptional food and wine, excellent service and in a beautiful setting. Well worth a stop, just for a meal!

We spent an afternoon in Casertavecchia and were delighted to find such a wonderful little hill town a short drive from Caserta. The drive up the mountain had spectacular views if you dared looked over the sides! Our GPS took us through some very interesting and very narrow challenging streets to get there and on our way back, not using the GPS, we found an easy, straight forward route back to our accommodations. But overall, the town is worth a visit to see the main square, the tiny streets that are barely wide enough for two people to walk side by side and these little cars zipping around the town. Also, it was surprising for such a little hill town there were many restaurants to stop and eat in.

Caught the #103 bus to Casertavecchia, which leaves just near the railway station, takes about 40 minutes to get there and buses run frequently. This is a very quaint little village and it is picture perfect. It was very quiet, only saw about 10 other people in the time we were there. We had lunch up there, then wandered around for about 2 hours and that was more than enough time to spend there.

One Euro is all it will cost to get the private bus from Caserta train station up to Casertavecchia (also spelt Caserta Vecchia). It is worth the trip.

The small hilltop village is a designated Italian National Monument, an historic snapshot of a past era with beautiful small cobbles streets, a stunning cathedral and the remains of a fort on the hill top. The village dates back to 861AD.

We visited on a damp weekday in Spring and managed to miss the bus load of noisy school children so we felt like we were the only people there - it was so peaceful.

If you are after picturesque scenery rather than shops, this is the place for you. The views back to Caserta confirm just how big the Caserta Palace is too.

We reached Casertavecchia by bus from Caserta. We took the #103 bus by CLP company from Caserta train station (the bus stop is located left of the train station exit). The journey was bumpy and lasted about 40 minutes. We used our Campania artecards for the ride, but you can also buy tickets from the ticket booth at the bus station.

The village is beautiful and wonderfully preserved. The main attraction is the gothic church, which has changed very little from the medieval times. The village also offers nice views of the Caserta valley and Vesuvius in the distance. We walked all the village streets in about an hour.

But besides wondering down the small alleys and visiting two village churches there is not much else to do here. There are no shops or museums. We were literally the only people in the village (we met only a couple of cats and dogs). But we spotted many restaurants, so I suspect Casertavecchia becomes more alive in the evening, around dinner time. I suggest you visit this village towards the evening and have a dinner in one of the restaurants with panoramic terraces.

I can't believe this isn't on the travel blogs' radar. It's a great place to stroll around. Nice little church, restaurants, shops and small streets to get lost on. However, make sure you ready for an uphill hike from the parking area to the village. It's not all that bad but if you have any physical difficulties, you should be aware of the walk.
This village is also not far from Caserta, which is a "must see" as well. If you're traveling between Rome and Naples, this is a great area to check out.

Not far from modern Caserta , up on the hill you will discover the windy old village. One to two degrees less than in the valley it is a refreshing moment in summer. You eat very well there.

And interesting drive from Caserta up into the hills with great views back to Naples and Mount Vesuvius and also the Island of Capri on a good day. The old town is not as touristy as some in Tuscany but still a nice walk through the narrow streets of antique with churches and towers
