What an amazing museum! The park it is situated in is beautiful and it's very easy to take the Capodimonte shuttle (pick up from Teatro San Carlo, Piazza Dante, Archaeological Musuem) so you don't have to deal with driving and parking. The collection is absolutely fantastic --- and the best part is you aren't packed in like sardines while you... More

The palace sits in an attractive park that is attractive in itself to wander round with great views of Naples. There was a queue to get into the actual gallery itself as at the time my visit there was the added attraction of two Van Gogh paintings. However once inside, the sheer scale of the gallery means that it is... More

To get here, you better take the bus from the National Archeological Museum. You can also go by foot - what we did in the first place - but the walk is uphill and longer as expected. Once you get here, you will find a top museum, which - other that the National Archeological Museum - is also in a... More

Nice museum. Has some great pieces. Take the 168 or 178 bus from the archaeological museum to get nearby. Cafeteria was closed. Lots of religious artworks and the rooms that have the original furniture and paintings are outstanding. Worth the visit. Nice Vermeer exhibition when we visited.

This is a really lovely place with an excellent collection of Italian art (mainly on religious themes). The gardens offer very fine views and beautiful fountains.

At San Carlo Theater, Piazza Dante, and the Archeological Museum you can catch the shuttle at the bus stop, pay the driver 12€, and have round trip transport to the museum and back, plus admission to the space. The great Farnese collection and much more including the building and its furnishings. Many Titians, much Rafael, a fine Bellini, and of... More

There is an excellent temporary chamber exposition showing Vermeer's Young girl with lute in contemporary Italian art context. The permanet exhibitions are also frenetic: for example a fantastic exhibition of Flemish carpets etc., Italian, Spanish, German and French painters. A really must.

We were happy to come to this museum, which is a bit of outside of Naples and therefore there were almost no tourists. However the collection is rich and beautiful, there are many great masters, including Titian, Rafael, Goya and Caravagio. It was a great trip!

Only 10 minutes bus ride from Naples, over a nice hill, surrounded by a luxurious park. The museum is huge!!! Take at least half a day... Raffaello, Tiziano, Caravaggio and hundreds of others!!! Plus a magnificent noble residence, including marvelous rooms, marble everywhere, and breathtaking ceilings. The building itself and the lighting could do better, but perfection doesn't exist!
