Palazzo Reale in Naples dates back to the 17th Century. You will be amazed by the size and opulence of this ancient royal residence, and its façade in particular, which is abundantly embellished with statues of all of Naples' past leaders. Castel Nuovo, on Piazza Municipio square dates back to the 13th Century. It is surrounded by impressive fortifications. Don't miss the spectacular arches at the entrance, or the frescoes and sculptures used to decorate the interior. It is also worth visiting the Capodimonte, another palace situated at the top of the city, in the park of the same name. If you have time, go and visit the royal apartments with their sumptuous furniture and wonderful collection of religious paintings from various Neapolitan churches.
The Galleria Umberto I is located in the center of Naples, in front of the San Carlo theater and close to the Royal Palace.© Martin Siepmann/ age fotostock
