Caserta is known as the “Versailles of Naples” thanks to the Royal Palace built here in the 18th Century by the Bourbon King, Charles III.
The enchanting palace overlooking the huge square is one of the most sumptuous buildings of its kind in Italy, it has over 1.200 rooms and is full of chandeliers, richly gilded frescoes, tapestries and history.
In 1945 the building housed the headquarters of the Supreme Command of the Allied Forces in the Mediterranean. The extraordinary gardens are 3 km long and their crowning glory is the great cascade, a 75 metres high waterfall that can be clearly seen from the palace.
