The Museum is located inside the Capodimonte Royal Palace on Via Milano n°2 - Naples.
Located in the Capodimonte Royal Palace, it is one of the most important museums in the Southern Italy which houses the Farnese collection with works of the most important artists from the Renaissance to the Baroque, the Borgia collection, and the Neapolitan Gallery.
In 1738 under Charles of Bourbon, king of Naples, began the works for the construction of the Capodimonte Royal Palace and, in 1757, there was placed the beautiful Farnese collection once belonged to the king's mother, Elizabeth Farnese.
During the French Decade (1806-1815) the palace acquired a destination purely residential and lived there personality like Joseph Bonaparte and Joachim Murat. During the years, works and enlargements of the building went on (creation of the monumental staircase, decoration of the halls...) until when, starting from 1840, was also created a gallery of contemporary art characterized by portraits of the royal family.
With the Unification of Italy (1861), the Royal Palace passed to the Savoy and the collections got notably rich thanks to Annibale Sacco, but only in 1957 born the real "National Gallery of Capodimonte".
The Museum consists of more than 150 rooms arranged on 3 floors, and houses paintings, sculptures, bronzes, drawings and prints, tapestries and armours; on the first floor you will found the famous Farnese collection with works by Titian, Masaccio, Botticelli, Parmigianino, as well as the precious "porcelain living-room" composed by over 3000 pieces of fine Capodimonte porcelain, and the Borgia collection.
On the second floor you can admire extraordinary works coming from the Neapolitan and southern churches that form the Neapolitan Gallery, with works by Simone Martini, Caravaggio, Caracciolo, as well as the collection of Flemish tapestries of Andrea D'Avalos. On the third and last floor there is the 19th Century Gallery (Domenico Morelli, Gioacchino Toma, Vincenzo Gemito) and the section of contemporary art (Andy Warhol).

The museum is rich with Italian cultural artifacts. The tapestry room is vast. The recovered artifacts from Pompeii is the largest collection outside Pompeii itself. The park outside is a delight in itself. Even if you are not venturing inside to soak up the culture, outside is perfect for reading a book, having a picnic with someone special or getting...

The best museum in Naples is the Museo di Capodimonte – a little out of the way, but a world-class collection of European and Neapolitan art. However, you can only view most of the second floor with a guided tour that runs at 10:15, 12:15, etc. And only the contemporary art collection that makes up the entire third floor is...

Beautiful building surrounded by a beautiful part with a great collection. Fine specimens of Renaisance and Neapolitan artworks. Lovely pottery and interesting modern art works. The palace is imposing, gorgeous and enormous, the park is probably the most of the nature you will see in the city and the position is just excellent. Good for a rainy and a sunny...

If you like medieval art or art in general, this is a very nice museum. It's not one of the best you will visit in your lifetime, but, but it really is excellent. And, even if only one floor is open at the moment (second floor) it is huge! So be prepared for three to four hours.

This Museum is comparable to the finest ones in the World. It hosts great masters such as Italian Pre-Renaissance and Renaissance Masters, Dutch Masters (you just name them - here they are), and many more. French painting is also well represented ad each Century is highlighted by more and more incredible paintings. On the side of 'Curiosities' the Pavia Battle...

One of the most important and famous artistic museums of Naples, with an astonishing collection of fine art between paintings, sculptures and manifacture throughout the centuries, in which are particularly renowned the Farnese collection, with operas of magnificent Italian masters of the Renaissance, and the Neapolitan collection, a real tribute to the traditional Neapolitan school of art and exquisite pottery....

This museum has several wonderful paintings which makes it worth the trip. But do be aware that there are rooms and rooms of religious art by lesser known (and mainly second-rate) artists which we found extremely tedious, and in the end we had to skip most before our eyes glazed over. There are also some Roman statues which again we...

Difficult to find on public transport. Take a C40 or Red Line bus but you will need to ask driver where to get off as it's not obvious.

I think we went to most of the places where there are Carravagio paintings in Naples (and we did the same in Rome). Don't know if it's a fad, but we weren't the only ones doing this! There's only one Carravagio in this museum, set in very lovely gardens, up high in Naples. It's worth a visit, but we walked...

Beautiful and updated museum in an old royal palace. Entry is difficult to find (R4 bus doesn't let you off there. Once in, take your time: there are some amazing pieces and all are displayed well. Unfortunately the Artemisia Gentileschi paintings were in a closed section when we were there--bummer, because that's really what I had come to see! The...
