Pompeii and Caserta
Campania is not just sea and sun. Campania is culture and here we find two extraordinary places that must not be missed. The Royal Palace of Caserta and Pompeii: two extraordinary places of incomparable beauty, rich in history and art, even though they belong to two different historical moments
An immense palace reminiscent of the Escuriale, built in square, with several courtyards: a truly regal residence. The gardens in the park are beautiful, in perfect harmony with a strip of land that is all a garden. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
The Reggia di Caserta
The Reggia di Caserta, the splendid royal residence of the Bourbons designed in 1752 by Luigi Vanvitelli. A structure that has nothing to envy the great European palaces such as Versailles, its interior offers beautiful rooms and staircases in pure Baroque-Rococo style typical of the second half of the 18th century. And outside, a huge, magnificent Italian-style garden.
Cinema in the Reggia
Did you know that the Reggia di Caserta has been the set of numerous famous films such as Star Wars, Mission Impossible and Angels and Demons? In addition to the extraordinary beauty of the Reggia you can immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the seventh art and recognise the places where the most beautiful scenes were filmed
The Archaeological Park of Pompeii
The extraordinary archaeological park at the foot of Vesuvius that bears witness to the life and architecture of Roman times completely preserved under almost six metres of ash that fell with the eruption of the volcano in 79. Works of extraordinary beauty that are true testimony to a flourishing and lively era, completely wiped out in a few hours
The House of the Vettii
The Domus Romana is one of the best preserved examples of ancient art. Dating back to the 1st century BC, its name derives from the ancient owners Aulo Vettio Restituito and Aulo Vettio Conviva. Inside are preserved incredible frescoes that give the visitor a real insight into the living habits of the Pompeians.
