Découvrez le palais royal de Caserta, un somptueux ensemble, considéré comme le Versailles de la région de la Campanie, également doté d'une université, de ministères, d'une bibliothèque publique, d'une magistrature, un grand théâtre, un séminaire, et une cathédrale. Autrefois résidence des Bourbons, le palais est désormais considéré comme un site classé au patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO et l'architecture offre des vues exceptionnelles, de splendides panoramas à couper le souffle, des parcs et jardins magnifiques.
To be hones, this is kind of a strange place. It is 'billed' as the Versailles of Italy and in size and setup it is, but it definitely looks run down and in need of lots of repair. The palace is in a part of town that doesn't seem real 'safe' - run down houses. It has a huge garden with the water fountain - the walk was 3 km from the back door of the palace to the water fall and fountain. So it is big. The inside of the Palace is really in despair. I don't think it has the tourist funding - doesn't get enough traffic to get money for upkeep. It is more like a place for local folks to picnic and walk around which is not bad, but if you are looking for it to be the same glitz as Versailles then you will be very disappointed.
It was a workout to walk to fountains and English Garden but worth it. We did not realize there was transportation available for people who had trouble walking. Information should be available. Also there are no maps or brochures available in English. I am glad I went but needed more information about the site before going
Gorgeous palace with lots of furniture, beautiful architecture, detailed molding, frescos, chandeliers... Huge palace and expansive gardens - note the length of the pools with fountains. For a small fee, a bus will drive you to the top.
