In the atrium of the building is located the majestic staircase with 116 steps and marble statues that mark the way. From the staircase you climb to the upper vestibule and the Palatine Chapel, with vaulted ceilings and gilded rosettes. To the left of chapel there is the entrance to the royal apartments, decorated with a refined taste where the rococo meets the neoclassicism era. The best painters, cabinetmakers and carvers of the time, who contributed to create the highest decoration of the XVIII century in Italy, conducted the decorative works. This floor is divided into new apartment, apartment of the King, Murat's apartment, old apartment and the theater of the court.
