A journey in the eighteenth century


THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR NEEDS AND REQUESTS.

In 1751 King Charles of Bourbon with the vast work of reorganization of the kingdom of Naples, commissioned the architect Luigi Vanvitelli to design a palace that could compete with the large residences of European monarchs, particularly with the royal Palace at Versailles.

The great dwelling includes four courtyards and many rooms (1200), chapels, museums and theaters. The park has 120 acres and long avenues, with fountains and many buildings to be explored on foot or by carts.

CLOSED ON TUESDAY

Itinerary

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.
