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.

  • 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.
