Full description
The Royal Palace of Caserta, commissioned by King Charles of Bourbon to emulate Versailles, is the largest royal residence in the world, a huge building with 1200 rooms, 34 flights of stairs and 1742 windows and since 1997 has been declared by the UNESCO heritage of humanity. Inside, admire the halls and private rooms of the kings. The route will include a detailed visit to the representative and private rooms of the Bourbon kings, where you will be able to admire the furniture, ornaments, chandeliers and sculptures of great value.

Walk through the 800 rooms with historical paintings, precious gilded stuccos and precious objects that testify the skill of local and foreign artisans. The second part of the route will be dedicated to the Halls of the '700, furnished with precious silks, watches with curious shapes and refined porcelain. In this environment, Ferdinando and Maria Carolina received their friends.

Relive the glories of the Bourbon era for a charming experience, visiting not only the rich reception rooms, the throne room and those dedicated to diplomatic meetings, but also the private rooms and corners that will still speak to you about life more intimate than the king and the queen. The complex also includes the scenic royal park, 3 kilometers long, enriched by fountains with sculptural groups inspired by the "Metamorphosis" of Ovid with places of entertainment for the royals such as the great Peschiera and the Castelluccia in addition to places of leisure and tranquility like the English Garden.
