The Gardens of the Royal Palace of Caserta

The Gardens of the Royal Palace of Caserta were declared in 2010 the most beautiful historical gardens in Italy.
As you can read in the article dedicated to the interiors of the royal palace of Caserta, their infinite beauty attracts countless tourists every year who, after visiting the royal apartments, can enjoy a relaxing walk through the lawns of the King.
The Gardens of the Royal Palace of Caserta are the green lung of the architectural project of Luigi Vanvitelli, extending over 120 hectares and are characterized by a style halfway between the Baroque and the neoclassicism that we also find in the interiors of the Royal Palace.
The presence of the different fountains helps to direct the gaze both towards the end of the gardens and towards the Palace depending on the point of observation, creating a sort of “telescope effect” while looking at it in the distance. A truly breathtaking view.

Walking through all the gardens, we find alternating fountains and
waterfalls, each one dedicated to a mitologic story or characterized by a specific meaning.
Among the extraordinary works we find: The Castelluccia, Great Fishpond, Margaret or Canestro’s fountain, Superior Fishpond fed by Dolphin Waterfall. Also the fountains of Eolo and Cerere are very famous with statues of dolphins and tritons. Proceeding , we can see the Fountain of Venus and Adonis and finally the Big Waterfall also called Diana’s Fountain.
This fountain, in fact, tells the story of Attone who, went out hunting, Saw Diana while was taking a bath. So Diana, angry, turned him into a deer that was then mauled by his own hunting dogs. Looking at this wonderful artwork, it seems that the statues and the water itself, stage this event. Spectacular!


Next to the large waterfall is the English garden, built in 1782 at the
request of Maria Carolina who seems to have financed it with his money the designer Andrew John Graefer called by Lord Hamilton. Once you enter the entrance, it will seem to enter into another era: romantic trails, exotic species of plants and flowers, swimming pools and waterfalls are able to excite tourists of all ages. And then, ruins adorned with statues, ponds, avenues, paths, statues from the excavations of Pompeii, the Venus kneeling on a rock in the center of a pond, create an environment of timeless charm. Pay attention because the path from the Palace to the English Gardens extends for a few kilometers and especially outward, is uphill! So, if you want to take a coffee-break. Take the opportunity
when you meet the food courts located at the beginning and end of the waterfalls: you will find one inside the building, just before entering the park and the other one near the English Garden. Along the avenues that lead to the top of the park you will find benches to rest whenever you want. Remember that, due to Anti-Covid normatives, you need to book the entrance for the Palace on the time slots available from the official website.
