Enjoy a short drive through the city of Naples and on to the provincial centre of Campania, to visit the Royal Palace of Caserta.
Discover the beauty of the former Royal Palace, also referred as the ‘Versailles of Italy'.
This architectural masterpiece was designed by Luigi Vanvitelli in the 18th century, with 1,200 rooms each connected by 34 staircases and illuminated by 1,970 windows. A guided tour of the Royal Palace will show you its beauty, the grand staircases and vaulted frescoed ceilings.
Afterwards, you will be transferred by shuttle for a visit to the Palace park, which begins from the back facade of the Palace, flanking a long alley with artificial fountains and cascades. The park is a typical example of the baroque extension of formal vistas and was inspired by the park of Versailles. As you stroll through the grounds, admire the marble statues and enjoy the calming sound of the fountains' cascading water.
The short shuttle ride will then take you to your vehicle for the return drive to the pier.
This tour involves approximately one hour of walking, which includes uneven ground and steps. In addition, there is a 15 minute walk to and from your vehicle park to the Palace. Depending on the number of visitors, guests may experience a wait for the shuttle bus to the Palace park. Flat, comfortable shoes are recommended.
