What to expect

The National Museum of Capodimonte is housed in the sumptuous palace of the same name that once served as residence for noble families between the 18th and early 20th century. The Bourbons decided to build this palace in 1738 but the construction work only ended over a century later. The name of the palace comes from the Farnese collection, one of the most important families of the Italian Renaissance. It includes masterpieces by Titian, Parmigianino and Carracci and a sumptuous display of decorative arts. Over the centuries the museum was enriched with major works of art from former Bourbon residences and churches in Naples and Southern Italy, sometimes of entire collections, such as the Borgia and d’Avalos collections.

On the first floor you can visit the Royal Apartments, where you will also see an array of the famous Bourbon chinaware. On the second and third floor, you can visit the Neapolitan Gallery and the sections of the museum dedicated to 19th century and contemporary art, whose works were specially made for the museum by international artists.
