Among the most beautiful mansions ever built in the world, the REGGIA DI CASERTA is the dream realization that the king CARLO III DI BORBONE had since childhood.
The complex consists of an imposing rectangular building with a symmetrical structure, with four courtyards joined by galleries and a vast park of 3 km, divided into 3 areas (the parterre, with the so-called old forest, the central area, with large pools of water, waterfalls and sculptural groups, the English garden, with arboreal trees of great value, lakes and streams) ending with the Great Waterfall, a spectacular jump of almost eighty meters.
Our guided tour will take us to discover the most beautiful rooms of the imposing building built around 4 courtyards, connected by majestic galleries, the result of the genius of Luigi Vanvitelli, a great artist of all time.
The 50 rooms of the King’s apartments comprise the grand staircase, the majestic palatine chapel, frescoes, beautiful paintings, furnishings from the 18th and 19th centuries, four-poster beds, tables, thrones, princely cradles, sedans, worthless objects of decoration and even an ancient elevator, all of which will make us experience the luster, court life, love affairs and intrigues of the royal family.
