an itinerary in the footsteps of the Bourbon dynasty that reigned for more than a century on Naples. Overlooking the famous Piazza del Plebiscito, the Royal Palace of Naples was begun in the early ‘1600, based on a project by Domenico Fontana.
The oldest rooms on the first floor, now the Historical Living Quarters Museum, contain the furnishings of the royal families: the Court Theater, the Throne Room, the Palatine Chapeland.
Charles of Bourbon from 1738 commissioned the construction of the Reggia di Capodimonte, located on the hill at the highest part of the City.
It was the same Charles of Bourbon, who wanted to turn Naples into a great European capital, to instruct the architect Luigi Vanvitelli to design the stunning Royal Palace of Caserta.
Finally, the prestigious Museo Nazionale Ferroviario di Pietrarsa has its home in the historic factory built by Ferdinand II of Bourbon in 1840 in a town called Pietrarsa.
This is a journey through the great residences of the Bourbons and the charming architecture of the eighteenth century.
