Things to know about Royal Palace of Caserta
The Royal Palace of Caserta was built by the King Charles of Bourbon during the great reorganization of the kingdom of Naples, and committed the design to the architect Luigi Vanvitelli in 1751.
The basic idea was to create a building that could compete with the great residences of the European monarchs: the huge palace, in fact, includes four courtyards and 1,200 rooms. Exploring the apartments of the Royal Palace you can admire the majestic marble staircases, the adorned ceilings, the court theatre and the refined decorations of the rooms made by the best painters of that time.
The tour of the Royal Palace also includes a visit to the 120 acres Royal Park, which stretches for along 3 kilometers long avenues, adorned with fountains and monumental sculptures.
