The Capodimonte Museum And Park - Review
The Capodimonte Museum is one of the most significant museums of Naples. It has the distinction having the huge collection of Farnese and Borbone treasures. The museum is found in the Palazzo Reale di Capodimonte, which is located in a peaceful park on a hill overlooking Naples. It is home to an amazing collection of paintings. Charles III inherited the far reaching Farnese Collection in 1735 and moved it to this city royal residence. From 1759 to 1806 the royal residence was both a home and a museum, in which the important collection of Farnese was exhibited.
This royal residence’s rooms were outfitted for the new rulers. You will be able to see different canvases that were included from the Pinacoteca Nazionale di Napoli to the existing paintings. On one side on the ground floor of the museum, you can see evolving displays. The collection of the several artefacts like paintings and other objects of art of the nineteenth century are found on the mezzanine floor. Goya and Botticelli are amongst the many prominent artists displayed here. The Museum also holds the extraordinary craftwork of the Capodimonte School like porcelain and glass and earthenware tableware. The adjoining park is the place to explore unparalleled beauty.

The Capodimonte Museum And Park, Naples Reviews
This museum was meant to be a palace. Now is hosting artworks of great importance. We bought our tickets online to skip the line but we wouldn't have to wait anyway. It was not crowded. It will be good to pay attention to the opening hours for each floor. We couldn't enter the first floor exhibition because it was closed during the afternoon. There is also a break around noon and the entrance to the exhibition is not possible but a visitor can exit and enter the museum with the same ticket all day long. The artworks are displayed in aesthetically impressive way. The organizers and curators excelled displaying every single piece of art playing with the light in an exceptionally atmospheric way. An unforgettable experience.
If you are in Naples, you can’t miss this stop! This museum has a huge gallery where you will admire the best of the Neapolitan art and of the Neapolitan Baroque. There is even a stunning painting of Caravaggio! If you are underage you will not even pay the ticket! Outside the museum there is a beautiful Royal Forest where you can walk and enjoy the view!
I work on a cruise ship and have a little bit of free time each week in Naples. I visited the museum and park and hope to come back with more time to explore. This is a tiny island of heaven in a very noisy and lively city. The views are sweeping and Vesuvius and Capri both beckon. The museum is divine. Both the underrated Neapolitan art and the museum itself are worthy of a long visit or several visits. The grounds and the collection are cultural heavy weights but the crowds do not know this.
Disappointing Visitor Information! Without a doubt a stunning building and collection. However, only after we paid 12€ entrance fee, we were informed that the complete first floor (holding the collection Farnese, that we came for) was closed. They should have announced in advance or reduce entrance fee. When asked about it they only shrugged. This behaviour doesn't go with a world class collection.
Other than the small section of contemporary art, this museum was a pass for me. After having been to several other museums in Italy, like the Uffizi in Florence, there are only so many religious paintings I can handle. The building itself is lovely, but the Royal apartments were closed when we were there and they didn't give any discount on the extortionate entrance fee of €12. Not really worth the cost, in my opinion. Walking around the royal wood is free though, and highly recommended.
