Belvedere of San Leucio of Caserta. What to see timetables tickets

Belvedere of San Leucio

Immersed in nature and in a particularly evocative context, dominated by the mountain and with breathtaking views of the valley. A little further on stands the mighty silhouette of Vesuvius.

A magical place where time seems to have stopped. A site of unspeakable beauty which unfortunately, even today, does not enjoy the right attention. Despite having been awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO along with the nearby Royal Palace of Caserta.

Yet, visiting the monumental complex of the Belvedere of San Leucio, you almost immediately end up being fascinated.
Almost immediately it becomes clear why Ferdinand IV of Bourbon, way back in 1773, was so fascinated by this place.

And today, almost intact, you can admire the treasures of that time and, above all, you can get an even more specific and unique overall picture of the Bourbon era.
