Reggia di Caserta, Versailles of south Italy? Aug 08, 2003
Almost every tourist that arrives in Caserta goes there with one target: to visit the Palace of Caserta (Reggia di Caserta). It is called the Italian Versailles because of the palace and the garden as well. The Royal Palace was designed by Vanvitelli in the mid 18th century on commission of the king of Charles VII, King of Naples and Sicily. It's said that he wanted his own Versailles, the most beautiful palace at the time.
But, you can't fool yourself, South Italy is quite different from North France, and the Caserta Palace is not so well preserved as Versailles is.
Nevertheless the Reggia di Caserta worth a visit, most of all the gardens, really beautiful with spectacular sculptures in the fountains.
