Travel Tips for Caserta
The whole place appealed to my imagination
I think that starting at the gardens might be the way to go because we ran out of time to see them and the medieval section. You can see these sculptures on the way in the bus but instead of walking up the mountain to investigate the water source (which was a steep and exhausting climb), you can still view that from the underside and save some energy for the rest. I would leave the look through the castle until last but check the opening and closing times carefully in order to not miss out on this. There were many things that I enjoyed and as I said I would have loved to have seen more. Something that always sticks in my mind though is this clock that was dangling from the ceiling in one of the palace halls........not so strange? Well, the face was toward the floor??
Here is another of the sculptures, she could easily have been holding a lamp, a flower or a ribbon?
La Reggia - Maze Room
This room is just before the Throne room and it is called Maze Room because there's a big labyrinth on the floor.
The legend tells that people should find the maze exit to be admitted to the Throne Room
Caserta, Italy (near Napoli)
My great grandparents are from Caserta.
Caserta is the capital of the province of the same name. It is in the Campania region which is beautiful hills overlooking the Mediterranean.
The official Caserta Website: http://www.comune.caserta.it
80000 people live in the district around Caserta which includes about 20 villages.
Back in the old days (1000 AD), the region was owned by the Prince of Capua. Later it replaced Casertavecchia (old Caserta) as the local seat of power. And still later (1750s) it was the center of the Bourbon kings of Naples and Sicily who built great fortifications and palace buildings.
the town shield shows the tower that the Prince of Capua built and the cornicopiea as symbils of power and wealth; the cornicopiea are also the symbols of the province of Caserta
STAR WARS AND THE ROYAL PALACE OF NABOO?
"Shaking at the palace"
Caserta is an interesting place. The palace, the only palace that I have ever been in, is just so huge it is hard to imagine people ever living in it.
The garden is also huge, just seems to go on forever. You can catch a little bus to travel to the water fountain source.
"A shaking at Caserta"
Two claims to fame. Not only was Caserta rockin and rolling with an earthquake on the day that I visited, but I have since discovered that the Castle is a movie star.
"The Palace at Caserta"
The Palace at Caserta is amazing. Beautiful furniture, statues, paintings, libraries vases and clocks etc., all beautiful.
