Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Campania / Province of Naples / Naples / Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte
The 18th century Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte offers an extensive collection of Neapolitan art set within a grand palace. Before entering, wander through the park surrounding the building. This was once a forested hunting ground for Naples' Bourbon rulers. Inside, marvel at paintings and other pieces dating from the 13th century--perhaps the richest collection of Neapolitan School artworks in the world. Try to book your tour ahead of time, because tickets sell out quickly. Make Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte a part of your Naples vacation plans using our Naples trip website.

Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte reviews
a great walk, one of the best looked after places in Napoli, which has dirty streets, the garden is beautiful, the museum always has many interesting attractions more »
Loved this place. Brilliant art and architecture . Quiet and peaceful when we went. Used local bus to get there. Surrounded by gardens and open space. Brilliant view of Napoli. Will be returning to... more »
The exhibits during my visits were awesome. I enjoyed the sculptures and contemporary art most. There are thousands of paintings and they were beautiful as well. I found the stitch work the most impressive. They look like rugs... These are ginormous and span an entire wall with high ceilings. Each of them tell a story. But the details are what captured me most.
Both the museum and the park were a wonderful surprise. The museum houses a great collection that is very well displayed. It was almost empty of visitors at the end of the day so it felt like we were at a private viewing. The park is beautifully maintained and is a convenient spot to get some respite from the Neapolitan heat. One thing to note is that the café does not accept cards.
