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).

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...

If you going to visit Naples than this museum is really worth going to. It is one of the best museums of Europe. On the ground, you'll find many Roman statues from over 4 centuraries before C. When I visited the museum there was on the top floor of this place an exhibtion about Pompei. It was a true amazing...

You walk into the first gallery and there is a room full of Titans and Raphaels - how do you improve on that?? Especially the portrait of Pope Paul III and his Grandsons - the first group portrait in the history of western art! The wonders unfold with every step. Don't miss this place.

This is one of the must see stops in Naples for art. One of the three Caravaggio's in Naples is here, but so are many other works worth the time and effort it takes to get here. Plan on several hours at a minimum. There is not much close by for dining.

I went there to see one of Caravaggio's later paintings and it was there at the end of long wing. You can see it from far. It was so moving to see this piece. But more surprising was to encounter one of Goya's portrait! What a treat it was to just discover this beautiful painting hanging in a corner of...

After a half day tour of Pompei, we went to the museum to see some of the artifacts taken from the Pompei site and put on show in the museum. The museum was a university and taken over by the museum. There are thousands of amazing items from the Roman period, the mosaics were absolutely fantastic. There are stairs in...

Astonishing art. Absolute must see. Quite why it is housed in a building with the ambiance of a civic centre remains a mystery. Enjoy searching for the toilets!
