This private tour regards the visit of the Royal Palace of Caserta, better known as the Palace of Caserta: an architectural masterpiece designed by Luigi Vanvitelli in the eighteenth century. The itinerary includes both the interior of the Palace and the fabulous park of over 120 hectares; both declared UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The tour will begin with a visit to the fabulous interiors of the Royal Palace, which represent one of the highest points of the Italian Baroque style and that leave every visitor agape. The huge house has four courtyards and many rooms (over 1200), chapels, museums and theaters. Everything is connected by 34 magnificent staircases and by 1970 windows that provide the necessary lighting.
In the lobby of the building there is the grand staircase with 116 steps and marble statues that indicate the way. The staircase leads up to the upper vestibule and the Palatine Chapel, with vault ceilings and gilded rosettes. You can admire the royal apartments, decorated with a refined style where the rococo merges with the neoclassical. The best painters of that time contributed with their arts to create the most sublime decoration of the eighteenth century in Italy.
The park respects completely the majesty of the Palace, with its fountains, the subtlety of its design and the greenery. The gardens extend for over three kilometers and end with a 78 meters-high waterfall that flows into the terrific Fountain of Diana. Within the park there is also the English Garden, commissioned by Maria Carolina of Austria, full of rare and exotic plants, a picturesque lake and artificial ruins decorated with statues.
