Capodimonte Museum: O Caravaggio!

The largest museum in Italy is visited for both its extraordinary collections and the sheer splendour of the place, offering special access to the Bourbon princes' royal place.

Upon arrival, you will be captivated by the vastness of this 130-hectar park, where the splendid palazzo of Charles VII, King of Naples, stands. Friends and family love to gather in this hilly and lush place to play football, have a picnic or wander one of the 500 hiking trails.

Former home of the Bourbon dynasty, the striking pink stone building houses the museum and its priceless masterpieces. Let your footsteps guide you from room to room, where the grandeur of mirrors, crystal chandeliers and marble colonnades fade before the genius of the great masters: Bruegel the Elder, Jacopo de' Barbari, Artemisia Gentileschi and, of course, Caravaggio and his famous Flagellation of Christ

The Farnese Collection and Neapolitan gallery compete in their ability to trace the history of painting, from the 13th to the 18th century.

Do not miss the royal apartments and their porcelain from the renowned manufactory established in 1743.

Far from the hustle and bustle of the city, take a moment to relax and enjoy a cultural walk in the countryside in one of the most beautiful Neapolitan sites.
