Review of Palazzo Correale

Palazzo Correale
Reviewed July 23, 2013

The palace is in need of restoration but if you go through the arch to the back you will find an 18th century tiled wall that is beautiful and hints at past glories.

Lots of beautiful inlaid marble and tortoiseshell cabinets, roman artefacts, china, glass and paintings (which could do with a good clean - many were dark and murky). A huge former villa with cool rooms to wander around. The gardens are full of lemons and agapanthus and the path leads down under the road into the terrace of a smart hotel overlooking the sea.

This is quite an interesting visit to what was formerly a family villa. Ancient sculpture, ceramics, paintings, furniture and local inlaid wood work. The variety of artifacts and manageable size of the museum made this an easy visit. Be sure also to go through the gardens down to a terrace overlooking the sea, wonderful vistas from here and from the house itself. The house and garden together give a flavour of the lifestyle of the wealthy family to which they belonged.

We were in Sorrento for the week of May 16 - 23, 2012. Except for shopping, there's not much to do in the city, but there is one good museum, Palazzo Correale (7 Euros/person). It was donated to the city in 1902 by the last remaining heirs of a wealthy family that lived there, and its five floors give some idea of what it must have been like to live there. The museum is also filled with forgettable paintings, but it has lots of interesting ceramics and exquisite inlaid furniture. Look for a clock made specially for some pope who wanted to know what time it was when he woke in the middle of the night. It's like an 18th or 19th century digital clock except that it's lit by a candle in back.

As you climb higher (or take the lift), the views of the Bay of Naples become more and more breath-taking. After, be sure to wander in the well-maintained garden in the back. It leads to a terrace maintained by the hotel next door, so you can get more great views from there and exit through the hotel--or stop for a very expensive meal!
