The Palazzo Reale, Caserta

Just a short visit in August will whet appetites for a visit when it's a bit cooler...

Caserta's Palazzo Reale from the outside
Palazzo Reale, a bit closer in
Up the grand staircase to the private apartments and the Palatine Chapel
Statue at mid-point of stairway
The dome frescos above the grand staircase
Into the Palatine Chapel.
The altar This is the Palatine Chapel. The guidebook didn't say why it's Palatine. Doing some web research, the official website for the palazzo indicates the chapel was damaged during WWII bombings where the sacred art and furnishing were destroyed. According to the Wikipedia pages, the palace was the filming location for palaces in the Star Wars series as well as MI-III.
View up the gardens and fountains

It's a LONG walk (3km up and then 3km back) through the whole gardens. I'll dedicate at least a page to this area once we return to Caserta in the fall.
