The palace of King (French) of Napoli located over the city in a large garden; very good historic art collection with contemporary appendix. Good escape from the city rush.

The palace is situated in a beautiful park that used to be the Royal hunting grounds. Today everybody can enjoy the park and they really do. We encountered joggers cyclists, people ambling along, people pushing baby strollers and people walking their dogs. The views from the park is amazing. Being o high you can see very far over Naples and specially over the Sanita area. I especially enjoyed the water fountain for dogs.
The building is impressive and the rooms lavishly decorated. The chandeliers and the drapes are very special and the floor something different.
The armoury is very impressive .... a place where grown men can become boys again.
I found the porcelain room a bit over the top but that is personal taste
The statues are impressive and some of the best known statues are here eg the Farnese bull.
Of course we were impressed by Caravaggio's Flagellation of Christ. Hung in such a position that you can appreciate it from afar.
There are two wax statues on exhibit for which they are crowdfunding in order to buy it. Although I contributed I still cannot understand why you would want a decapitated head and a rotting body but nevertheless....
To sum up: Go see and experience. This is a must do.

We parked at IPM parking lot and walked 5 mins down to the Museum. If you love art like we do you will def enjoy this museum. My favorites were Caravaggio &Titian.
We spent 3 hours roaming the halls and enjoying every minute

Entrance is 12 euros . With Artecard 4 euros. 3.50 for the awful audio guide and one page index (see later).
First the positives. The grounds are magnificent but linger after you exit or you'll sit there all afternoon.
The 'Galleria delle Cosi Rare' now has some objects on display for the first time including Cardinal Farnese's Blue Majolica service . Admire the 'Diana the Huntress' self propelling table decoration and the 'Cassetta Farnese' casket in a glass case all to itself.
Don't miss the Goose Service in the Historical Apartments Rooms 35-36. Fine Neapolitan views and a soup tureen with naughty child perched strangling the unfortunate bird.
The Brussels Tapestries are magnificent. Andy Warhol's famous 'Vesuvius' is not here as it's on loan to the MADRE museum for the Pompeii exhibition -catch it there.
Now the Negatives. There are world class paintings including the 'Danae' which carry no red audio symbol yet have an audio commentary , so unhelpful.
The El Greco 'Soflon' has audio commentary and is no 17 on the index yet on Good Friday, there was a substitute 'El Greco' and no sign saying 'On loan ' or' being restored.' A really very useful commentary for a painting that wasn't even there!
Even worse. You go from Rooms 2 to 10 and are then expected to head back to Room 2 for the audio commentary to continue. Then 11 to 14 and back to 4 for the Bruegel. I was so dizzy !
On the second floor you go from Room 62 to 94 then back to 92, 88 and forward to 95 to follow the audio- if it hadn't be for the wonderful staff particularly Antonella on the 2nd floor, I would have expired. And do not get me started about the signage to Floor 3.
Looking back , it was the only time in Napoli in two weeks that I felt 'pura rabbia'. This would not take more than a couple of hours to sort out and with the technology available , there's no excuse whatsoever. Permanent exhibits are the
'bread and butter' of any top class museum and the visitor experience should be smooth (funnily enough, it was everywhere else). Please get this sorted out- the key question being . Quando ?

When I visited in March 2018, I was delighted that the Caravaggio Flagellation was back from Milan, but sorry to miss out on a couple of gorgeous Titians that I had hoped to see. I don't know what the gallery's policy is on loaning out its highlight works, but do wonder if it's a bit too generous! It's a nice, spacious place to walk around and the views from the garden over the city and the bay are an extra treat. I would echo the warning that another reviewer made about pickpockets on the buses to and from Capodimonte - we thought we had taken every precaution, but my partner still got robbed from the zipped up pocket of his trouser leg. The buses are so crowded and the thieves so skilful that it is very difficult to keep your money safe.
