Castel dell’Ovo:
The Castel dell’Ovo (Castrum Ovi, in Latin) is one of the oldest in the city of Naples, and is one of the elements that stands out most in the famous panorama of the Gulf. It rises on the islet of Megaride, consisting of two rocks joined together by a large arch. The Cumans (of Greek-Euboic origin) landed on this islet in the mid-7th century BC. to then found the first nucleus of Palepoli, the future Naples. In the 1st century BC under the Romans the sumptuous villa of Lucio Licinius Lucullus was built there, which in darker times for the Empire – mid-fifth century – was fortified by Valentinian III and who had the fate of hosting the deposed last emperor of Rome, Romulus Augustus , in 476.
In the fortress built on the islet, according to the legend thanks to the intervention of Virgil, his own remains would have been walled up, after the desecration of the tomb during the reign of Roger the Norman. Probably a pagan place of worship, according to legend, linked to the siren Parthenope, with the Basilian monks it became a place of Christian worship, but the real fortress was born with the Normans and finally with the Angevins it became a castle.
The Royal Palace of Caserta was built starting from 1752 by Luigi Vanvitelli, and subsequently by his son Carlo, at the behest of Charles of Bourbon with the aim of erecting it as the fulcrum of the new kingdom of Naples.
The palace was built in Caserta because the king was very fascinated by the beauty of the Caserta landscape and, for security reasons, he wanted it far from the sea and inland, but not far from Naples. The Palace should have held its own against that of Versailles.
The Palace was completed in 1845 (although it had already been inhabited since 1780) and is considered the last great example of Italian Baroque.
The Palace has an area of ​​47,000 m2, five floors and four internal courtyards. Inside it has a majestic grand staircase, the Palatine Chapel, the historic apartment, the court theater and the Picture Gallery.
Furthermore, the park and the waterfall give the complex a highly elegant and scenographic resolution.
In 1997 the Royal Palace of Caserta was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
