This private and comfortable tour will bring you to Caserta to visit the Royal Palace and the less known yet excellent site of San Leucio, a monumental silk factory. Between the visits, we will bring you to try the best pizza in the world at the award-winning restaurant “I Masanielli”.
The Royal Palace of Caserta
Charles of Bourbon was an ambitious King. He wanted to build a royal palace in Napoli that could compete with the Parisian grand palace of Versailles. In 1750 he commissioned the gargantuan project to the dutch architect Van Wittel. The result was one of the most splendid palaces in the world. Today, travelers from all over the world come here to visit the vast gardens and the marbled interors of the Royal Palace. A curiosity: Caserta has been chosen as a set for the Palace of Naboo in the first episode of Star Wars.
San Leucio was built by the Kings of Bourbon in the 18th century to host one of Europe’s most important silk factories. Now accessible to visitors, the factory was highly recognized in the 18th and 19th centuries: the British Flag in Buckingham Palace has been made here!
