    These are amazing photographs Jim and having been to the  Palace of Versailles I can certainly see the resemblence. The Fountain of Venus is especially awesome – everytime I visit your blog I spend the rest of the day daydreaming about hitting the road!

      Well I’m delighted you’re having a fine time visiting my blog and my
      adventures. In July I am going to SanFrancisco and then later this summer I
      will be traveling to Greece and then to Scotland. So I will have a plethora
      of photos and experiences to share.

    Wow, this is incredible!! I’ve never seen anything like it. Your photos are gorgeous and I love your descriptions. Where is this park?? I’m definitely putting it on the list of places to go!

      The Park is behind the Royal Palace in Caserta, Italy. It was originally
      built as a sort of summer place so that the King could get away from it all
      in Naples Italy. It’s quite the summer house and gardens wouldn’t you say?

    Wow
    The grounds look incredible and I am sure I would have walked through them as well instead of taking other transport.
    They do have some strange ideas about dolphins though.
    I will definitely return to your blog for more photo’s and possible destinations fro myself.
    Enjoy your trips and travel safely

    Jim – I think I am going to very much enjoy visiting and reliving your travels with you. Your photography is beautiful and your recap was great. Now I’ve got the itch to go somewhere. My family loves to travel – even my young children. Our next trip is to British Columbia later this summer. I’ll have a recap of that to share when the time comes. I look forward to more beautiful words and photos. VaNessa

    WOW what a magnificent park Jim!   Imagine owning something like that, you would always have wonderful places to explore.  Children would have so many adventures living there!  

    Thanks so much for sharing the photos and your story about this wonderful park.  

    I look forward to your stories also, regards from Julieanne

    Jim!

    I love traveling to your blog and learning about interesting and wonderful places I have to be. It allows me to add more locations to my list of things to do… when i get there! :D 

    Personally, I love all the fountains and that picture of inside the grotto is break taking. Thanks for everything you do!

    Hello Jim

    I enjoy reading your adventures. Your photography gives one tremendous views of your travel.  Jim how were the 1200 rooms used?

    Thanks

    Jim, As always, the tour was very impressive. 1200 rooms, wow! How were they all used? As added  treat I put on a cd of wind chimes and waterfalls. Really created a dull experience.  How do you choose which location to visit next? Thank you again for being my world guide. So many places I’ve always wanted to visit and now you have made that dream come true.

    Many blessing and safe travels –

    Hi Jim,

    Thanks for sharing another incredible journey with us…with your amazing photography and vivid descriptions, it transports your readers to the destination with you.

    The Park is incredible and I’m happy that you are in great shape so you could walk the 2.5 miles and make it possible for us to see the pictures of the fountains.

    I just returned from the mountains of Vermont with my family and I have to tell you…not quite as picturesque, although the mountain backdrop is quite impressive 🙂

    I look forward to our next adventure…

    Great post, Jim! It never ceases to amaze me how many great pictures you get. Have you ever considered trying to write a tour guide book? I think that you could rival Frommer.

    What a delight to visit your blog. It is almost (almost) like traveling.
    I am grateful to you for bringing you traveling experience to us through your blog.
    I love the picture  named: “Caserta Royal Palace: The Park” I like the angle.

    Will visit again soon.
    PS: Here is about my last traveling experience http://dld.bz/ag7Xd

    Hi Jim,

    Thank you for sharing your story and pictures of the Caserta Royal Palace. What do they do with 1200 rooms?

    These pictures are incredible! I especially love the one with the view from the grotto! Simply amazing. Thanks for bringing your travels to us. You could easily market a product using your adventures as a foundation. The photography is brilliant and I love the way you describe your experiences.

    I couldn’t help notice the graffiti at the top of the grotto! Thanks!

    Hi Jim….thank you this beautiful account of the gardens of Caserta Royal Palace.  I have not visited this Palace, but I am very familiar with Versailles and I can certainly see the resemblance.  Versailles made a lasting impression on me and this looks just as magnificent.

    What an amazing place to visit, Jim.  Your pictures are truly amazing and I thank you for your walking tour of the magnificent grounds.  All I can say is WOW!

    We have never been to Italy but plan to in the near future.  This will definitely be a place to visit on our “must see” list.

    Thanks again!

    Breathtaking! Just… breathtaking!

    I am on track to lose over 100 lbs too, Jim. Maybe when I’ve reached my goal weight, I’ll be able to travel there and walk that two miles! In the meantime, thank you so much for sharing your awesome experience with us… it’s the next best thing to being there!
