Full description
Nestled in a park, the National Museum of Capodimonte hosts one of the largest and richest art collections of Italy. Born as the Royal Palace, its rooms were always intended to accommodate all the legacies of the Kings of Naples throughout the centuries.

Walking up the monumental stairs, you will encounter the wonderful Farnese Collection, consisting of Tiziano, Masolino, Masaccio, as well as drawings by Raffaello and Michelangelo. The greatest art history is long the first floor, which ends with the Royal Apartments.

The second floor is dedicated to Neapolitan art, from the Medieval Ages to Renaissance and Mannerism, right to the light at the end of the corridor: the "Falgellation" by Caravaggio. The third and last floor hosts the contemporary collection, where one of the main works is "Vesvuvius" by Andy Warhol.
