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.

  • Nice building full of old painting. The modern art part on the last level is small and has like 20 pieces of art. One Warhol though. But that's it. Also, don't bother paying the entrance fee as you can enter as you wish and just take the central stair to visit. Weird. The garden around is great though.

  • One of the most fascinating public parks I've ever been to. The gardens are really well-kept, and the palace always hosts interesting events. Do not miss to visit, despite the difficulties in reaching it by pubblic transportation.

  • Bourbon palace in a very well maintained (though not huge) park above the city of Naples. Undoubtedly the best view over the city I've had so far (only without the Vesuvius in the background). Unfortunately, around half of the museum is currently closed for renovation (this includes the royal apartments on the first floor and Neapolitan artists on the second floor). Also, there is no air conditioning inside (or only in very few rooms), which led to temperatures above 40°C when we visited. Additionally, it is also very humid which can't be beneficial for the works exposed. The artwork we saw was impressive (Caravaggio and many (Southern) Italian artists of Baroque and Renaissance, Michelangelo, Van Dyck and Andy Warhol). Restrooms are inaccessible or unusable inside the museum. There is a very small restroom building installed in the courtyard next to the cafeteria (doors can not be locked and bins are missing). The cafeteria in the courtyard serves superb coffee and also has a wide range of ice-creams and cold deserts available.

  • Very impresive museum. Worth the trip from center of Naples. A lot of artworks of famous painters and other artists.

  • Interesting walk up to the​ museum from Chiaia. Great and varied historical collection, with a bonus of some fine contemporary art. The grounds around the Museum are beautiful and offer a wonderful vista.
