Caserta

The Versailles of Italy
Although the city of Caserta is known worldwide for its Bourbon Royal Palace, famous as the Versailles of Italy, arrived in Caserta, the medieval village of Casertavecchia at the foot of the Tifatini mountains is also worth a visit, which is only 10 km from the Royal Palace of Caserta.
 
In Casertavecchia stands the Cathedral of San Michele Arcangelo which combines the Romanesque style of the early Christian tradition with decorative elements of Norman, Arab and even Byzantine origins. In the village of Casertavecchia you can admire the Duomo, the bell tower, the remains of the Castle and the beautiful streets with a medieval atmosphere in the Sicilian-Norman style.
 
Royal Palace of Caserta, a Unesco heritage
The Royal Palace of Caserta, located in the north of Naples, is a beautiful baroque palace with vast gardens and park. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, the Royal Palace of Caserta was built by the Bourbon king Charles III to compete with the Palace of Versailles (near Paris) and Royal Palace in Madrid.

The Royal Palace of Caserta was built between 1752 and 1845 on a project by Luigi Vanvitelli and, in addition to the architectural complex considered the last masterpiece of the Italian Baroque, it is surrounded by a beautiful park of 120 hectares.
 
Covering 5 floors, the palace boasts more than 1,200 stunning rooms. Not to be missed the Throne Room and Grand Staircase, the water features in the extensive gardens, including the Diana and Actaeon Fountain at the foot of the Grand Cascade.
 
Also to be admired is the Theater of the Royal Palace of Caserta which is a scale reproduction of the San Carlo Theater in Naples and an example of 19th century theatrical architecture, the only room in the Palace built entirely under the control of Luigi Vanvitelli.
