REGGIA DI CASERTA

The Royal Palace of Caserta is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Designed in the 18th century by the architect Luigi Vanvitelli for Charles III, Duke of Bourbon, it is a real masterpiece of architecture and decoration and it houses many works of art. It is amazing to stroll the different rooms of the royal apartaments full of stucco works, bas-riliefs, frescoes and sculptures. It’s also very suggestive to walk through the park. It is a typical example of an Italian garden: wide lawns, squared flowerbeds and, above all, a triumph of water games with the Great Waterfall. Then the surprise of the English Garden,  requested by Maria Carolina d’Austria,  which bursts with indigenous and exotic plants, including the wonderful Cedars of Lebanon.
