More than another Versailles

As every ruling dynasty in Europe had to have its own "Versailles" (of course bigger, more majestic, more whatever), so did the Bourbon dynasty in kingdom of Naples.

I think this comparison does not do justice however to Caserta Reggia, who truly stands on its own. Built in a more sober classicist style by Gianluigi Vanvitelli, the palace is really "regal" and imposing. And the gardens, with a long line of 3kms climbing uphill are truly unique.
