The Reggia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997, was inspired by the palaces of Versailles and El Escorial and covers an area of 45,000 square meters. Appointed by the Bourbon king Charles III, architect Luigi Vanvitelli admirably succeeded in the arduous task of designing an austere-style palace on the outside, with splendid rooms and halls, and surrounded by a park with elegant and majestic fountains.
Walk the extensive park to admire the so-called 'waterway', whose water comes through the Carolino Aqueduct, see innumerable sculptures, fountains, and waterfalls, and visit the English Garden, to discover its native and exotic plants. Head to the castle to explore the unique beauty of its interiors made up of 1,200 rooms and 134 staircases. Follow your guide through the Royal Apartments, the Throne Hall, and the Bourbons rooms, and don't miss the chance to climb the iconic Scala Regia, the huge, bright staircase carved from a single block of marble.
