Caserta, located in the region called Campania Felix by the Romans, has very ancient origins. The province extends from the sea to the Apennines, rich in vegetation and great historical and cultural testimonies.

To get to know the Neapolitan culture of the XVIII century is essential to visit the Royal Palace of Caserta, one of the most famous in Italy. The complex, which includes the Royal Palace and Park, is located at the western end of Caserta, in the place where until 1752 there was a small village.


The Royal Palace of Caserta


In 1751 King Charles of Bourbon, in the vast work of reorganization of the kingdom of Naples, commissioned the architect Luigi Vanvitelli to design a palace that could compete with the large residences of European monarchs, particularly with the royal Palace at Versailles. They choose a more secure place for the king, because in 1742 the British fleet tried to bombard the threatened city of Naples. The work continued until 1774 under the direction of Charles Vanvitelli after his father's death the previous year. The great dwelling includes four courtyards and many rooms (1200), chapels, museums and theaters. The park has 120 acres and long avenues, with fountains and many buildings to be explored on foot or by carts.

In the atrium of the building is located the majestic staircase with 116 steps and marble statues that mark the way. From the staircase you climb to the upper vestibule and the Palatine Chapel, with vaulted ceilings and gilded rosettes. To the left of chapel there is the entrance to the royal apartments, decorated with a refined taste where the rococo meets the neoclassicism era. The best painters, cabinetmakers and carvers of the time, who contributed to create the highest decoration of the XVIII century in Italy, conducted the decorative works. This floor is divided into new apartment, apartment of the King, Murat's apartment, old apartment and the theater of the court.


The Park


The park replicates in total the majesty of the Palace in the fountains, in the sophistication of its waters and in its green vegetation. The sequence of fountains ends in Great Falls, said the fountain of Diana, which precipitates with a jump of 78 meters between a wooded espaliers. In the park is also the English Garden, commissioned by Maria Carolina of Austria, rich in rare and exotic plants, a picturesque lake and artificial ruins embellished with statues.

INFO

San Leucio


The village of San Leucio, famous for its silk production of high quality and housing numerous cultural events, was built by Ferdinand IV in the XVIII century. He built there the most important silk factory of the time and provided the place with an own statute that guaranteed equal rights for all the inhabitants, compulsory education for young people and health care for the sick and elderly.



Casertavecchia is an Italian medieval village that lies at the foot of the Tifatini Mountains located 10 km northeast from the city of Caserta at an altitude of approximately 401 meters. Its name means "Old Caserta". The sights of the town are the Cathedral of S.Michele, a magnificent example of arab-norman architecture with a polychromatic lantern and bell tower, the remains of the original castle and the Mullioned House, an example of a 15th century aristocratic home. Visitors can dine in local pizzerias with panoramic views o the surrounding countryside.
