It's a bit out of the way but if you like renaissance artists such as Titian, Caravaggio, Raphael, El Greco etc this art gallery is a must see. Set in a beautiful park above the noise of Naples it's one of the few places you can hear birdsong! Recommend taking a picnic to eat outside to enjoy the relative peace... More

We happened to go on a day when the museum was free, so it was packed. Unfortunately, there was another exhibit that drew crowds there, so we had to wait almost 1 hour to be admitted. Once inside, the main gallery (2nd Floor) was closed for the special exhibit, and the crowds were overwhelming. The upper gallery was relatively uncrowded,... More

One of the most fascinating public parks I've ever been to. The gardens are really well-kept, and the palace always hosts a interesting events. Do not miss it!

Confusing layout and unhelpful staff. To access the toilets on the second floor, half of which was very disappointingly closed off, we had to show our entrance tickets no less than three times, only to find toilets without toilet paper and no soap at the washbasins. In order to continue our visit we had to beg the staff to let... More

Expecting more paintings by Caravaggio. Only one piece ! Noboby tells you about it at the entrance. And you pay your 8 euros for that masterpiece..

This is an impressive collection housed in a splendid building well out of the centre of Naples - 20 minutes from the historic centre. Be sure to book ahead online. The long queues move at glacial speed with only two tills doing tickets for the hundreds waiting. The same are also covering receipts of online tickets. By contrast at least... More

Came here to see the museum and the lovely park grounds surrounding it. On arrival the park grounds were closed off for no obvious reason so we only had the museum to visit. The art here is boring - mainly religious inspired paintings, continuing endlessly. The entrance is confusing you have a ticket that gets you so far but you... More

Housed at the top of a steep Neapolitan hill (hence 'capodimonte') in a former castle, this museum is worth the visit. Sure, there are a lot of seemingly repetitious religious paintings. But there are a number of remarkable Titians (very human renderings of religious themes), a notable Caravaggio, some Brueguels, and other little known items that are excellent in their... More

A lovely location with views over Naples and towards Vesuvio. The collection has a few highlights but is bettered by the Archeological Museum if you are short of time.
