Visit the colossal Palazzo Reale of Caserta is The compelling reason to stop at this otherwise nondescript town. Royal Palace of Caserta is one of the greatest – and last – achievements of Italian baroque architecture.
Known to Italians as the Reggia di Caserta, this Unesco-listed Palace began life in 1752 after King Charles VII of Bourbon ordered a palace to rival Versailles. The neapolitan architect Luigi Vanvitelli was commisioned for the job and built a palace bigger than its French rival, with its prestigious halls and its rich apartments (1200 rooms) seems like wrapped immense garden, designed by majestic gardens and monumental decorations.
Its film credits include Mission Impossible III and the interior shots of Queen Amidala’s royal residence in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace and Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones.
