Casertavecchia, beautiful medieval village in Italy. How to get


Nestled on a hill, in a decidedly suggestive position over the entire surrounding area, Casertavecchia is a place of undoubted beauty. Just 10 kilometers away from Caserta and its wonderful Royal Palace, a world heritage site.

Casertavecchia is a fascinating medieval village, almost suspended in time. You can notice it while walking through its alleys, squares and admiring some of its main monuments including the Duomo and the Castle.

There is no shortage of events and initiatives all year round, such as “September at the Borgo“, a beautiful festival in which art and culture are celebrated in all its many forms.


The village is just 10 kilometers from the center of Caserta and can be easily reached by car in about 20 minutes.
It is possible to get to Casertavecchia by bus with the UC5 line (Borgo Line), managed by AirCampania. The service is active from Monday to Friday, from 05:00 to 18:20; Saturday; from 05:00 to 23:00; Sunday, from 11.35am to 4pm. The frequency is approximately 60′.


The remains of the Swabian Castle stand out at the beginning of the medieval village, the only element of the city walls to have survived.
Today the remains can be admired but it remains a place of undoubted charm.
Splendid and evocative alleys lead to the beautiful Cathedral, dating back to the 12th century and dedicated to the cult of San Michele Arcangelo.
Inside you can admire the imposing central nave with 18 columns.
To the side stands the Bell Tower, 32 meters high.

On the opposite side, crossing Via Sopra le Mura, don’t miss the Belvedere with a splendid panoramic point over the entire valley. From here, the view extends from the Royal Palace of Caserta to Vesuvius.


Without a doubt the best time to visit the area is in late spring and autumn. In summer, sunset hours are to be preferred as they offer the most evocative and… romantic views!
Avoid peak summer hours with the heat which can really be felt at 400 meters above sea level.

During weekdays there are very few people and, in all likelihood, you will be able to enjoy an even more magical and evocative atmosphere.
