Vespatour 2006 part 17: Caserta

Reggia di CasertaA 3 kilometers-long garden, with an incredible view both towards the hill and the royal palace! 🙂

The Royal Palace of Caserta really surprised me and I think I did a good choice by stopping there in the morning of 23 august 2006, while I was traveling from Rome to Bisceglie, in Puglia, where I was going to spend a few days at the seaside to rest after the long journey around Italy riding my Vespa.

The 54 photos of the seventeenth gallery are entirely dedicated to the Royal Palace of Caserta, to the sumptuous royal apartments, which I visited while listening to an audioguide, and most of all to the marvelous garden and its fountains. The complex was actually built by Carlo III di Borbone with the aim to rival with the Royal Palace of Versailles.

I’ve never had the chance to visit Versailles yet, but I think the astonishment I felt in Caserta will be still in my mind when I’ll do that. Who knows, maybe in the next Vespatour… 😉
