    Beautiful.   We all need to enjoy what life has to offer us.   Take the time to smell the roses and visit places that you’ve never seen before….

    Imagine spending all that money on a grand old castle and never actually sleep even one night in it…  Wait…  It wasn’t really  his money.  Still a gorgeous abode, ideal as a “pied a terre” in beautiful Naples don’t you think?

    Keep the Smiles and I certainly always have mine on whenever I come visit your blog.

    Wow, this is really an amazing place. I’ve never been there, but I have been to the Palace of Versailles so I can well imagine. Thanks for the really awesome photographs – makes it much easier to imagine being there!

    Hello James, it certainly is amazing!  I loved looking at the photographs, thanks so much for displaying them for us to get an inside look.   Can you imagine living there in those times, with  phone or intercom system, to be able to find other people?  LOVE the room with the painting on the ceiling also, so magnificent!  regards from Julieanne

    As a young child I would imagine living in a palace much like this.  So awesome that you are able to bring this memory back to me. Thank you for being the worlds best travel agent!

    Hey Jim!

    Wow, the man this palace was built for never even stayed in it…

    If I were Charles, I at least would have spent a weekend or a few days in there, it looks awesome!

    Looking forward to part 2

    Wow! What an awesome castle to visit. Your review and photos are so enticing that I would love to make that my next adventure! I would need to spend a month in there taking in all of the splendour and would probably need some work some realignment work done on my neck afterwards! You have some great recorded memories in your photos! Thanks for capturing some wonderful images and sharing them with us all.

      It’s too bad they don’t encourage people to lie down so that we could see
      all the really beautiful ceiling work that is replete in those palaces. It
      truly is amazing stuff. And it’s my pleasure to share it with you all. I get
      to re-live it too. 🙂

      So far you have only seen the Palace itself. I am currently getting ready to
      do the post about the Park. It’s replete with all kinds of fountains and
      statuary and encompasses 2.5 acres along a 2.5 mile stretch. It was a great
      walk and really quite interesting. Hopefully I’ll have that posted this
      afternoon. Right now I have to pick out a few nice pictures.

      Thanks for the nice comment.

    Hi Jim,

    This place is amazing, and I never even heard of it before! I am continually amazed at all the wonderful places we have to visit on planet earth. Next time I am in Europe, I will be putting this one on my list!

    Jim you have certainly visited some wonderful places on your travels. Anyone on a Mediterranean cruise which stops at Naples would do well to pay a visit here.

    Great post, Jim! Some of these pictures remind me of the Sistine Chapel. Great work as always showing the rest of us about some of the amazing things that are out there.

    Hi Jim,
    These pictures of Caserta Royal Palace are phenomenal. All of them are great. I especially like the marble floor and endless hallway. I commented on The Park earlier and I know these are prerequisite, however, I’ve decided to explore your blog and go back to see what I missed!

    The Throne Room is absolutely gorgeous too!
