Capodimonte Museum (Museo di Capodimonte) Tours

Capodimonte Museum (Museo di Capodimonte)
Naples’ Capodimonte Museum (Museo di Capodimonte) contains masterpieces from the Neapolitan and other Italian schools, as well as furniture and decorative arts, and ancient Roman sculptures. With works by Raphael, Titian, and Caravaggio, this museum is a must for art lovers and a popular stop on many private and group tours.
 
The Basics
Capodimonte Museum is located inside Capodimonte Palace, which was built by the Bourbon King Charles VII of Naples and Sicily to house the Farnese art collection he had inherited. The first and second floors are home to the National Gallery, with more than 100 paintings by Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, Masaccio, Giorgio Vasari, and El Greco, as well as works from the Neapolitan school. The ground floor holds classical sculpture, and the royal apartments display 18th-century furniture. Surrounding the palace, the 331-acre (134-hectare) Capodimonte Park is one of Naples’ most beautiful estates.
 
The Capodimonte Museum is one of the largest in Italy, and is best visited with a guided tour to appreciate the collections and grounds without being overwhelmed. To avoid a long wait, book a tour with skip-the-line tickets. Many private Naples tours or hop-on hop-off bus tours include a stop at the museum.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • A visit to the museum is particularly interesting for art enthusiasts who are interested in the Neapolitan school.
  • The Capodimonte Museum is completely wheelchair accessible.
  • Large bags, backpacks, and umbrellas must be checked at the entrance.
  • The museum houses a small bookshop and café.
  • Photography without flash is allowed in the museum.

How to Get There
The Capodimonte Museum is located just outside the center of Naples, accessible via a number of city bus lines or the convenient museum shuttle bus (Shuttle Capodimonte) that departs hourly from Piazza Trieste e Trento (opposite Teatro San Carlo) and stops at Piazza Dante and the National Archaeological Museum en route. Tickets can be purchased directly on the bus.
 
When to Get There
This popular museum and surrounding park can be very crowded on weekends, so it’s best visited on a weekday. The museum is closed on Wednesdays.
 
Highlights of the Capodimonte Museum Collection
Some of the collection’s highlights include the Portrait of Cardinal Alessandro Farnese and the Baronci Altarpiece by Raphael, the Antea by Parmigianino, the Transfiguration by Giovanni Bellini, the Annunciation and the Mary Magdalene by Titian, Masaccio’s Crucifixion, Botticelli's Madonna with Child and Angels, and, most important, Caravaggio’s Flagellation of Christ.
