GETTING TO THE CASERTA PALACE
Directions to the Royal Palace of Caserta
Caserta is the capital of the province of Caserta in Campania. It is an important agricultural, commercial and industrial area, and the city is located at the edge of the Campanian lowland at the bottom of the mountains of the Campania Subappennino. It is 35 km far from Naples, and 54km far from Pompeii.
The visit of the Royal Palace will need many hours to view all the rooms and gardens, so we recommend that you wear comfortable shoes.
For example, to get to Caserta from Rome or coming from Pompeii and Herculaneum, take the train to “Napoli Centrale” station in Naples, then take another train to Caserta which will leave you directly in front of the Royal Palace. You can buy tickets on the Trenitalia website, or directly in the train station.
- Tip 1: whatever is the starting point, if you have a doubt, always go to “Napoli Centrale”, and there take the train to Caserta. Considering that Naples is the capital of Campania Region, each train will surely arrive in the main city of the region.
- Tip 2: do not miss the train, we recommend you take a picture with your smartphone of the train’s timetable in the station, or to take notes on paper.
If you have a car navigation system you will not have trouble finding the city of Caserta. You can also use your smartphone as a navigation system for cars. Download a free app like TomTom App, Garmin App, Google Maps App, Waze, Sygic, etc
- Tip 1: Remember to update the maps before leaving;
- Tip 2: Because the app navigation needs a lot of battery, so while driving connects the smartphone using a cigarette lighter adapter like this.
Reach the international airport of Naples-Capodichino, and after take a bus or a train to Caserta.
