The city of Caserta is best known for its magnificent palace.  The Reggia di Caserta was commissioned by King Charles VII of Naples (a member of the  Bourbon dynasty) who later became Charles III, King of Spain.


This sumptuous royal residence was designed by Luigi Vanvitelli, an Italian architect and engineer, who took inspiration from the great palace of Versailles and it is indeed referred to as the “Versailles of Naples”.  


The construction work commenced in 1752 and was completed by Charles’ son Ferdinand in 1774.  Vanvitelli died in 1773 and the work was continued by his son Carlo.




The palace is situated in the centre of Caserta, near the railway station. It has an impressive facade, 5 floors, 1790 windows, and 1,200 rooms, of which about 95 are open to the public.


A monumental marble staircase, guarded by two carved marble lions, leads up to the Palatine chapel.
