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.

We meant to visit last time we were in Naples but didn't get round to the journey as its some way north of the centre. Now there is an excellent shuttle bus from the centre, buy your return ticket and entrance ticket on the bus for €12. The gallery has an excellent collection of Medieval and Renaissance paintings in a...

You could spend days in here looking at the amazing art work. Just to see the Caravaggio was bliss. Make sure you check that the gallery is open. We got in the lift with a curator and I asked her where it was. She said we had just caught the gallery open at 12 noon for 40 minutes and then...

Beautiful park, gorgeous views, fabulous building and great art to admire including the famous Caravaggio. Worth to hang out here for half a day or so. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Well worth the visit, especially if you come with a picnic or to run or stroll.

Worth spending most of a day here. The collection is well-cared-for and arranged so the visitor can enjoy them. The only problem with our visit was the vast numbers of bored school groups who sometimes took up entire room.

I popped in here on my last day in Naples, realising that's actually where all the runners of Napoli go (since we hardly saw any elsewhere). Beautiful park, gorgeous views, fab building and great art to admire including the famous Caravaggio. I loved hanging out here for half a day. Staff super helpful and friendly too. Well worth the visit,...

I had lunch at the cafeteria of the Capodimonte Museum. The cafeteria comes frills free, in one of the lower rooms of the palace. I had a quick simple pizza and a coffee. Served very quickly, good, and dirt cheap. Very nice and considerate service.

If you are into European painting of the 14th to 18th centuries, you cannot miss this collection: its nucleus is the old collection of the Farnese princes, and contains a rich array of masterpieces by Titian, Giordano, Caravaggio, Raphael, Michelangelo and others. The great thing is that the museum is by no means as busy as any of the other...

It is a huge palace! Apart from some good painting, the highlight for me was the residential area with its big ballroom and dinning room and the exotic decoration in some of the smaller ones. The gardens are well taken care of and very beautiful.

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...
