Caserta

Caserta is a city in Campania. Its main attraction is the world heritage listed Palazzo Reale (Royal Palace). During Italian summer holidays it can get quite packed. During the rest of the year it is a sleepy town.

Get in

There are regular trains running from and to Naples and Rome.

CPTC buses serve Caserta among other bus companies.

Get around

You'll see everyone on a moped, and sometimes 3-5 people on a single one. Driving can be a bit of a nightmare for the faint of heart, as well.

Walking should be fine, like in most places in Italy.

The garden and the palace

Buy

Local farmer goods. The artichokes they sell on the side of the road may look suspicious to you, but they're delicious. You can get fresh mozarella, vegetables, and bread daily too. Consider buying some of this for lunch.

Eat

There are plenty of local, family restaurants that are fairly accommodating to foreigners. Look for one that seems nice, and try it. Your mileage will vary, of course, but I generally found people to be friendly.

Drink

Stop into a coffee bar somewhere, and order a cafe. There's a lot of variety, so you may have some trouble ordering one. But it'll definitely be worth it.

Sleep

There are a couple of cheap hotels in via Giuseppe Garibaldi (turn right when you come out of the train station) .

Go next

Naples, Rome, and Capri are all close by.
