Art bonanza at Capodimonte Museum

Art fanatics, make sure you get into Capodimonte Museum as soon as the sun is out!

Must-Do's Naples Published on 3 August 2018

In truth, one can get lost as he wanders through the bulky collection featuring works by Raphael, Titian, Botticelli, Vasari, El Greco and Hackert displayed in the luxurious structure of the Museum. The Crucifixion by Masaccio and the Flagellation by Caravaggio, especially, will take your breath away.

A park downtown

Real Bosco (Royal Garden) is a 124 hectares park nesting the Capodimonte Museum. Locals love jogging and doing sports in the park because it’s the easiest getaway from the Neapolitan city buzz. Despite the bucolic setting, it’s cast in between the urban areas of Stella, Miano and Capodichino. It also overlooks the city and the harbour for memorable sunset views of the gulf.
