I invite you to visit the Royal Palace in the city of Caserta - a large-scale analogue of Versailles. Caserta lies away from tourist routes, so only sophisticated travelers can get here. Our goal is a masterpiece of neoclassicism - a fantastically beautiful palace and park ensemble, built in the 18th century by the Neapolitan kings from the Bourbon dynasty. Without crowds of tourists, you can enjoy the grandeur of its many halls and the beauty of the park, listening to my stories about the turbulent era of the Kingdom of Naples and the peculiarities of the royal life of the 18-19 centuries. Individual excursion for 1-4 people Duration 7 hours Children Allowed with children How it goes By car Rating 5 on 3 reviews € 385 per excursion Price for 1-4 people, regardless of the number of participants

This is the largest palace park in Italy and the largest and most luxurious royal apartments in Europe! And this palace is also a real "movie star"! You could see it as the residence of Princess Amidala in two episodes of George Lucas' Star Wars. In addition, the films Mission Impossible 3, The Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons were filmed here, and it was here in 1970 that Russian director Sergei Bondarchuk filmed Parisian palace scenes in his famous film Waterloo.

Program

  • Our excursion begins with a tour of the apartments and chambers of the king and princes of the blood, the size and interior decoration of which are often set in opposition to those of Versailles. I will tell you the turbulent history of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies and the interesting nuances of royal life. You will surely hear many interesting facts from the palace life.
  • Our walk will continue through the royal park. You will be amazed at its scale, paying tribute to the genius of its creator Luigi Vanvitelli, who had to globally change the terrain, create a huge aqueduct and even relocate an entire city in order to implement what Charles III Bourbon had planned. You will see numerous fountains, landscape delights, cascades and beautiful sculptural compositions. Explore the artificial lake, where King Ferdinand IV organized naval battles, and Queen Maria Carolina for some reason retired on an island in the center of the reservoir.
  • If desired, after the palace, we can visit the amphitheater in the city of Capua (next to Caserta), in the arena of which the most famous gladiator, Spartacus, performed.
  • If you are not too overwhelmed with impressions, on the way back, you can make a shopping stop at the city's outlet.
