What To see

Royal Palace of Caserta

The Royal Palace of Caserta, included in 1997 in the list of UNESCO heritage sites, is today one of the most impressive and visited monuments of our country. Designed in the eighteenth century by Luigi Vanvitelli, commissioned by Charles III of Bourbon, the Royal Palace represents the triumph of Italian Baroque and is one of the most important works of the celebrated Neapolitan architect.

Belvedere San Leucio

The Monumental Complex of San Leucio, better known as Belvedere, rises on the homonymous hill not far from the immense gardens of the Royal Palace of Caserta. Also recognized as World Heritage in 1997 by UNESCO, with the Royal Palace of Caserta and the Caroline Aqueduct, it is a must for tourists who visit Caserta

Caroline Aqueduct

The third monument recognized in 1997 by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, along with the Royal Palace of Caserta and Belvedere San Leucio, is the imposing and majestic Caroline Aqueduct. The construction of an aqueduct, which brought water from the Frizzo springs to the waterways of the Royal Palace of Caserta, was an extraordinary technical success which gave even more fame to the architect Luigi Vanvitelli, who succeeded in denying many scientists who had theorized that Fizzo’s water would never come to Caserta.

Campanian Amphitheater

Attached to the Amphitheater is the ‘Gladiators Museum’ where, with innovative expositive solutions, the surviving elements of the decoration of the Campanian Amphitheater are shown to the public.
