In the Royal Apartment, visitors can view the royal rooms on the piano nobile, whose period decorations and furnishings have remained intact. This suite of rooms corresponds to the ‘Grande Appartamento di Etichetta’ commissioned by Ferdinand of Bourbon. A number of rooms have been converted into an art gallery, whose works are arranged according to a thematic and historical-stylistic layout. The small Court Theatre, which was designed by Ferdinando Fuga to celebrate the marriage of Maria Carolina of Habsburg to Ferdinand IV in 1768, is an absolute gem. The theatre leads to the three antechambers that give onto the Sala del Trono and its great nineteenth-century canopy over the throne. It is well worth visiting the Salone d’Ercole – an old room used by the Viceroys, which in the eighteenth century was converted into a ballroom and adorned in the nineteenth century with tapestries depicting Stories of Cupid and Psyche – and the communicating Cappella Palatina – which was used for religious ceremonies and in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries for the Neapolitan Music School – which houses an outstanding seventeenth-century altar made of semi-precious stones and gilt bronze and a large eighteenth-century nativity crib.
