Museum and Royal Wood of Capodimonte



Designed by the Bourbons from 1738 onwards, the Royal Palace of Capodimonte is built around the Farnese collection, with extraordinary masterpieces by Titian, Parmigianino and Carracci and a sumptuous display of decorative arts. Over the centuries the museum was enriched with major works of art from churches in Naples and Southern Italy (Simone Martini, Colantonio, Caravaggio) and prestigious acquisitions, sometimes of entire collections (Borgia, d’Avalos). On the first floor, alongside the Farnese collection, you can see the Royal Apartments with an array of Bourbon craftsmanship, including the celebrated porcelain ware; on the second and third floors there is the Neapolitan Gallery and displays of 19th century and contemporary art.
