“Worn Palace”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

I wish Italy had the money to maintain its attractions. This castle was dirty and worn. I know the castle is suppose to be inspired by Versailles but it pales in comparison. The city of Caseerta isn't great either.

“A Must when in the area!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

"La Reggia" is an absolute MUST for anyone visiting the region - the Italian Versailles! Although the delapidated front garden area might be a deplorable sight when emerging from the underground parking area and is a witness of the scarce resources to maintain the palace area, the interior and the vast gardens behind the building are stunning! Room after room is an example of the excellence of the artists; an overwhelming abundance of majestic splendour.
A guided tour is not needed - an independent walk through the apartments gives you the luxury of admiring at your own pace. Make sure you have time and leisure, also for the gardens. Picknicks are permitted.
The restaurant is spartanic, lacking every sense of atmosphere … but the food is just excellent with an authentic "fatto in casa" taste.

“Amazing gardens and royal apartments”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

We were lucky to go to see the royal palace in jan on a sunny day so we went for a lovely walk pf 6 km in the gardens. Please be aware that the gardens in wintertime close at 2 o'clock. We paid a bit extra and we did a guided tour of the apartments, money well spent ! Pretty amazing the terracotta flooring that looks like Marble . A shame that the palace is not look after as of should be ....but still worth a visit !

“Magnificent!”

If you happen to find yourself in this part of Italy please visit this complex! It is also very good for a day trip from Rome. Gardens are indescribably beautiful and huge!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

Seen many historic buildings in my life and I was doubtful about going since the palace looked quite boring from the outside. But I was surprised and the palace interior is amazing and well worth the entrance fee. Unfortunately I did not have a chance to enter the park since they close already at 2 pm in December. If I come back I would definitely rent a bicycle and tour the park. Its a looong walk...
