Our guide will meet you there with your entrance tickets and begin the tour of this masterpiece that is considered to be one the largest royal residences in the world. The visit of this enchanting and majestic palace will last two hours.
Next you will reach the second site, the Belvedere of San Leucio. This monumental complex, the "Real Colony of San Leucio", constituted in 1778, is the representation of the first experiments of industrial installations, socially revolutionary for the collaboration between the Monarchy and the Enlightened Kingdom of the Bourbons. With its own statute, it became an admiration throughout Europe for its originality and innovation.
After the extraordinary uniqueness and beauty of the two previous sites (both UNESCO World Heritage sites), the visit of the medieval village of Old Caserta is up next; but not before a stop at a restaurant where you’ll get to taste “dell’oro bianco”, Caserta mozzarella, and a local pasta dish.
The last stop is Old Caserta (Casertavecchia), a village of Lombards origin.
