    The least known of the 4 royal residences of the Bourbons, this palazzo is in the process of becoming a museum and can be visited daily on tours or alone. You can visit one side of the palace, some of the king's rooms and the original museum of finds from Pompeii and Herculaneum, before the collection became too large and it was moved to Naples. Eventually the palace became part of the Agriculture Faculty of Naples University, which is still there, but according to the guide a new building is under construction and they should move out within the next 5 years, allowing the whole palace to be restored and opened as a museum. At the moment you can visit one side of it where most of the walls and ceilings have been restored. There's obviously still a lot of work to do, but it's worth seeing if you are in the area. There are 2 guides, one for the palace and one for the botanic gardens. Tours are not available in English at the moment, though there are descriptions in some of the rooms

    This place belongs to the first Italian railway from Naples to Portici and is close to the biggest railway museum in Italy called "Pietrarsa".
    From that spot it also astonishing see Vesuvio and Naples.

    This mid size botanic garden is just wonderful, well worth an hour to spend in the perfect silence and peace.I visited the garden on a quiet saturday afternoon when there was no other visitor around.The whole garden is surrounded by historical buildings way off the streets so the only sound you can hear is the birdsong...
    If you around go and chill here, look around,exotic trees and flowers in a perfectly calm enviroment.
    Rare experience...

    The Herculaneum site in Italy is very well preserved and interesting. The site is well-organized and compact, so you can cover the grounds in a day. The history of the location, and in particular how the preservation differs from Pompeii is intriguing.

    Get the bus from Portici. Take water and good shoes. Fantastic views into the crater and well worth the 20 minute walk from the bus station. Really great trip.

    Been there a few days ago, large bar with a short list of foods looked nice for a quick lunch before the train I wanted to catch from a nearby station. The lady informed us that a menu listed on a board is not up to date, but that's fine. I ordered some simple food and... nothing happened. Everyone servicing the place was very busy smoking and laughing together and after 40 minutes our order was passed to the cook! I got my meal after 1h15min and it was all in plastic and the waiter just put it on the table without a word. TERRINBE EXPERIENCE and wasted time in holidays. Really really bad.

    Lovely people, fabulous house, good location walking distance to the train station. Interior is dark so cool in the summer. No aircon in my room but cool non the less. Reasonable value for money, I prefer this to a modern hotel.
