The Royal Palace
The Palace of Caserta, in Italian Reggia di Caserta, is a former royal residence in Caserta, constructed for the Bourbon kings of Naples. It was the largest palace and probably the largest building erected in Europe in the eighteenth century. In 1996, the Palace of Caserta was listed among the World Heritage Sites on the grounds that it was "the swan song of the spectacular art of the Baroque, from which it adopted all the features needed to create the illusions of multidirectional space".
Casertavecchia (in the municipality of Caserta) is a medieval village rising 10 km North-East of Caserta on the “Tifatini” mountainside at
an altitude of about 401 meters.
The suburb of Casertavecchia is a tourist attraction because of the famous “via del Duomo”,
its bell tower, the ruins of the castle and the streets of the whole village which are reminders of its past glory.
You can enjoy the amazing landscapes from various points of the village, and the numerous restaurants, pubs and pizzerias entice
the inhabitants to spend their Saturday nights among the streets.
Some folk events such as the “Knight comeback” and the “September in the village” that take place in the Summer, contributed to the
revitalization of the territory.
