The former Royal Palace is located at Piazza Plebiscito 1, 80132 and was begun in 1600 by Domenico Fontana and restored from 1837-41. It is one of four palaces in the area that were used as residences by the Bourbon kings. On the long facade...More

We missed this visit the last time in Naples and promised ourselves to do it this time. The decor is spectacular and there are many fine examples of art. You should take the audio guide (which is free). This explains the very complicated history of...More

This Real palace says a lot about the splendor that this city had ans still maintains after years and years. This place/city is not to be underestimated, it has a powerful energy and beauty that few places in the world can afford to compete with.

The Royal Palace is an amazing example of neapolitan baroque architecture. The rooms are finely decorated and furbished. The entry ticket is only 4€ per person and it includes and audioguide. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and were almost alone in every room.

The exterior Of The Palace facing Piazza Plebiscito is not very ornate and gives no indication of the great rooms within. However, do not be put off, commencing with the grand staircase, and then the fascinating Court Theatre, there is much to see and enjoy.

This palace is crammed full of rooms filled with paintings and decorations and tapestries all worth a good look. The grand staircase is magnificent. It doesn't look that much from the outside, but in side is fantastic.

From the look of the exterior of Palazzo Reale you get the impression that its an office block. Take the time to visit and you will be amazed at the beauty of the interior. The former royal palace is certainly decorated to a very high...More

It seems to be closed only on "Wednesday; Christmas, New Year, May 1, August or special opening" (Sorry, but Tripadvisor doesn't let me show website link. You can check it yourself) So, 4/25 should be open.
