Parmigianino, Caravaggio and Carracci, all the greats are hanging pretty at the Capodimonte Museum in the Palace of Capodimonte, a sprawling Bourbon Palace and a true Naples staple. Breathe in the art among the opulent royal apartments and salons as you enjoy your audio tour!
Enter one of the largest museums in Italy, formerly a residence for the posh Bourbon rulers of the Kingdom of Naples and Sicily. Start on the second floor with the Farnese Collection and ponder the fact that King Charles of Bourbon's mother gave the whole lot to him. Lucky boy.
Check out the paintings, antiquities and cameos, and Parmigianino’s haunting portrait of a young woman, Antea on the second floor. Your audio guide will give you all the context you need. And don't miss the chandeliers and portraits of old Bourbon monarchs in their wigs in the royal apartments - some are so extravagant you won't believe it!
The third and fourth floors have work from artists like Raphael, Masaccio, and Andy Warhol. Opulent surroundings and stunning artwork, it's so rich here you may have an art attack.
