Embark on a 3-hour exploration of the Royal Palace and Park of Caserta, commissioned by the Bourbon King Charles III in 1752 and designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997.
The excursion starts inside the Royal Palace of Caserta, one of the most grandiose of Italy's royal residences. The Royal Palace was commissioned by the Bourbon King Charles III in 1752 and built by Luigi Vanvitelli. The nearly 475,000 square foot palace comprises of 1,200 rooms, 1,742 windows, and four courtyards. Some of the highlights include the Stairwell of Honor, the sumptuously decorated Royal Apartments, Throne Rooms, the Royal Chapel, a Theater, a Library and a precious collection of antique Neapolitan presepio figures (characters from the nativity scene).
Annexed to the Royal Palace is the Royal Park, which was also designed by Luigi Vanvitelli. Throughout the 300-acre complex you can admire esplanades, formal gardens, ornate fountains, the Large Fish Livery, the Miniature Castle, a botanical garden referred to as the "English Garden", an Open Air Theater and a magnificent waterfall which Vanvitelli himself enriched with many sculptures of Roman gods, goddesses and realistic animals. The Royal Palace and its park were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
