RE: opening hours of Caserta Gardens
According to the official website, the gardens at the Palace at Caserta are open everyday except Tuesday. See http://www.ambientece.arti.beniculturali.it/guida_reggia/Xenglish/info/4001.htm
So the Gardens will not be open on October 31 (being a Tuesday) but should be open the next day. Note the reduced winter hours that start November 1st.
I do not see any restrictions about holidays, but November 1st does not strike me as a holiday that would cause museums to close.
If you prefer to read Italian, see http://www.ambientece.arti.beniculturali.it/guida_reggia/ for the same site in Italian...
P.S., I have not been here (too bad), but I hope that the official website is correct...;-)
Travel Tips for Caserta
Slightly of the main walk - on the right when descending, you will find a rather huge pond with an island in the middle. It was built to provide military education, housing mock sea battles and entertainment - parties were thrown on the island.
Reggia di Caserta: Pt 4 Gardens Walk- Extra
Warning: this 'extra' part of the Garden's walk is not recommended is you are not able bodied, or in a large family group with kids! There are risks involved in the part of the climb.
Apparently there is a path leading right up to the top of the waterfall at the end. It has been blocked off with wooden planks on both sides, but people (like me) still attempt the climb up. It was easy for me to decide to do the climb because people had already broke some planks off so you could just skip underneath it.
The paths up have not been maintained probably since the closure so it's not entirely safe. The paths are quite steep slope paths (they're not stairs), and in some areas near the waterfalls, the water spill over on the paths making it very slippery due to the algae.
Then as you reach to the top, you'd still need to climb through a fence hole by the waterfall. Take note that this is just beside the top of the waterfall so extra care is needed. Once you're in you just need to get to the second floor of that monument up there. It's quite a workout since you start from the palace right to the end and then still do this steep climb.. The view is amazing. Definitely the highlight of my Reggia di Caserta Trip!!!
Caserta - La Reggia
Caserta is the capital of the province of that name in Southern Italy, situated in a fertile and pleasant region about twenty miles from Naples.
It attained a certain importance under the Lombards and later under the Normans, and the counts of Caserta were once powerful lords in that vicinity.
Later it was held as a fief by various noble families, last of all by the Gaetani, who made it over to Charles III of Savoy, King of Naples, by whom it was transformed into a second Versailles.
The most intresting attractions of Caserta are "La Reggia" and "La mozzarella di bufala"!
