It's an extraordinary palace and the gardens are remarkable. You'll need a golf cart to take you there. This will save you a long and tiring walk, especially after visiting the castle. If you're lucky enough to do it with the same person as us, you'll discover the famous English garden, brimming with secrets and mysterious corners. Our only regret was not being able to visit the opera house. It's a must-see palace! Julien and Bertrand

Constructed in the 18th Century, The Royal Palace of Caserta or Reggia Di Caserta was built by Baroque architect Luigi Vanvitelli on the Vitruvian Principles of strength, utility, and beauty. It was commissioned by Charles III of Naples of the Bourbon dynasty and designed to rival the splendor of the palaces of Versailles and Marid. This colossal building contains 1,200 rooms and is known for its glorious facades and its sprawling promenaded gardens replete with marble sculptures, fountains, and cascades. Learn more about your visit to Reggia di Caserta below.

The Royal Palace of Caserta is huge, to say the least. It’s easy to get lost while exploring it. So here are a few things to keep an eye out for.

The Grand Staircase of Honor

You will feel quite like a monarch yourself while you ascend the long parallel marble staircases of the Royal Palace of Caserta. Thirty-five meters high, the grey marble chiseled to perfection, the staircase leads to a spacious arched vestibule and three majestic statues at the top. From there you can truly admire the aesthetic dimensions of the structure that has inspired the designs of grand staircases worldwide.

The English Garden

Cozied in the immense manicured lawns outside the palace is the English Garden, a landscape design wonder meant to take you on a journey of colors and scents. Designed by British gardener John Andrew Graefer, the garden is an ambient escape, encapsulating 25 hectares of rare plants, bamboo forests, and ponds. Also, check out the Crpytoporticus, a false ruin while you’re there.

Carolino Aqueduct

The Carolino Aqueduct was commissioned by Charles of Bourbon to supply the nearby settlements, mills, and agricultural lands with water. It was also used as a decadent water source for the lush gardens and unending cascades of the Palace grounds. Nevertheless, it was considered an important public work created by the Bourbon regime.

The Diana and Actaeon Fountain

At the bottom of the grand cascade is a depiction in marble of the greek tragedy of Actaeon. The pantheon of sculptures features a shocked Diana, the goddess of virginity, at the appearance of a man while she is bathing. Nearby we see a scene in which a terrified anthropomorphic stag is chased by frenzied dogs. The stag is really Actaeon, who was transformed by Diana for his intrusion.     

The Grand Cascade

The undulating slope of the Royal Park’s vista has a waterfall at its helm, running down a forested mountainside that feeds into its rectilinear waterway of cascades and fountains. The waterway is lined by promenades and embellished with sculptures. Viewed from the end, the observer notes the scenographic beauty of the assemblage where the flowing water seems to originate from a point high up in the mountain. 
When you are done viewing the vast establishment of the Reggia di Caserta (if you ever manage to), you might want to check out these other attractions in and around Naples.
