Caserta Travel Guide: 42 reviews and 148 photos

Caserta is the capital of the province of that name in Southern Italy, situated in a fertile and pleasant region about twenty miles from Naples.
It attained a certain importance under the Lombards and later under the Normans, and the counts of Caserta were once powerful lords in that vicinity.
Later it was held as a fief by various noble families, last of all by the Gaetani, who made it over to Charles III of Savoy, King of Naples, by whom it was transformed into a second Versailles.
The most intresting attractions of Caserta are "La Reggia" and "La mozzarella di bufala"!
