Portici


The town of Portici is noteworthy for the Royal Palace which was built by order of Charles III of Bourbon in 1737. The king had visited the area with his wife, Maria Amalia, who was really fond of the beautiful landscapes of the slopes of mount Vesuvius and he decided to build a dwelling in order to spend some holidays here.
The building was the first place to host the artifacts unearthed from the buried towns of Herculaneum and Pompei. The objects uncovered from he ruins of those ancient towns, formed the famous Herculanense Museum which has recently
been reopened to the public. The Royal Palace is surrounded by a beautiful park which has now become an important botanical garden. We will visit a few frescoed rooms and the modern museum which contains copies of the original material excavated from the ruins of ancient Herculaneum.
