One of the places in Naples that surely you cannot miss is the imposing Royal Palace overlooking Piazza Plebiscito. It was one of the four grand residences used by the royal house of the Bourbons of Naples during the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies in the nineteenth century. During its history, the palace was originally the residence of the Spanish viceroys, then those Austrians and, finally, of the Bourbon kings. After the unification of Italy, it became the Neapolitan residence of the Savoy. If you want to visit something really special, then you have to visit to the Church of San Gennaro that is located within the beautiful park of Capodimonte. Built in the mid-1700s, it is a monumental church dedicated to the people who lived at the beginning in the park and houses into its bright interior several statues and a painting representing San Gennaro.
The city of Naples is famous not only for the churches, the undergrounds or squares, but also for its spectacular museums such as: the National Archaeological Museum and the Museum of Capodimonte. The first, located close to the historic center, houses the largest and most important collection of artworks and artifacts in Italy; it is considered, with its complex exhibition area of 12,650 square meters, one of the most important archaeological museums in the world if not the most significant regarding the history of the Roman period. Instead, the Capodimonte Museum is located within the same park on a hill overlooking Naples. Inside it you will find the National Galleries of Capodimonte, one of the most important in Italy. The galleries guard the incredible Farnese collection, with works by the greatest Italian masters from the Renaissance to the Baroque; the Borgia collection; and finally the collection of the history of Neapolitan painting, with the Neapolitan gallery (second floor) and the eight hundred century gallery (third floor).
