Royal Palace of Caserta helicopter excursion

A day to discover one of the most beautiful villas in the world!

A timeless place, a wonderful example of Baroque architecture that conquers at first glance, is The Royal Palace of Caserta.

During our excursion you can admire the architecture of the villa and the spectacular Royal Park from above.

The Royal Park , an integral part of the project presented by the architect Luigi Vanvitelli to the sovereigns, is inspired by the gardens of the great European residences of the time, merging the Italian tradition of Renaissance garden with the solutions introduced by André Le Nôtre at Versailles.
The works, with the delimitation of the area and the planting of the first plants, began in 1753, at the same time as those for the construction of the Carolino Aqueduct , whose waters, from the slopes of Mount Taburno would have fed the fountains of the royal gardens.
The formal garden, as it can be seen today, is only partly the realization of what Luigi Vanvitelli had conceived: on his death, in fact, in 1773, the aqueduct had been completed but no fountain had yet been built. The works were completed by his son Carlo (1740-1821), who, while simplifying the paternal project, was a faithful creator, preserving the compositional rhythm of the alternation of fountains, water basins, meadows and waterfalls.
The gardens are divided into two parts: the first is made up of vast parterres, separated by a central avenue that leads to the Margherita Fountain , flanked by groves of holm oaks and hornbeams, symmetrically arranged to form a scene Semicircular green “theatrical”.

Inside the park, a so-called “landscape” or “English” garden was created by John Andrew Graefer, wanted by Queen Maria Carolina of Habsburg-Lorraine, wife of Ferdinand IV. Graefer, known in the international botanical world for having introduced numerous exotic plants to England.

Begun in 1786, the works for the formation of the garden lasted many years: plants and seeds identified in Capri, Maiori, Vietri, Salerno, Cava de’Tirreni, Agnano, Solfatara, Gaeta were introduced.

Characterized by an apparent disorder, the English garden aims to emulate nature in all respects: streams, ponds, “ruins” according to the new fashion linked to the discovery of Pompeii, native and exotic plants populate this’ area. The fountains are fed by the Carolino aqueduct, inaugurated in 1762, largely built in tunnels that cross 6 reliefs and 3 viaducts.

In 1798, following the arrival of the French, John Andrew Graefer left the Royal Palace of Caserta; it is thanks to his three sons, who rented the garden of the French Directory in Naples, that the latter saved himself from ruin and neglect, arriving intact for posterity.

In flight you can also have an overview of the city of Caserta, Naples, Vesuvius, admiring the volcano which, in all its solemnity, dominates the Neapolitan province.

Why not take a trip to Magna Grecia and fly to one of the oldest destinations in Campania? Paestum one of the most beautiful places to immerse yourself in the ancient city.

It is an ancient city of Magna Graecia called by the Greeks Poseidonia in honor of Poseidon, but very devoted to Athena and Hera. After its conquest by the Lucanians it was called Paistom , and then assumed, under the Romans, the name of Paestum . The extension of its inhabited area is still well recognizable today, enclosed by its Greek walls, as modified in the Lucanian and then Roman times.

Paestum is surrounded by an almost totally preserved wall, with a polygonal perimeter that extends for about 4.75 km, following the trend of the travertine bank on which the city stands. It consists of a double curtain wall of large square blocks, filled in the center with earth and interspersed with 28 square and circular towers, almost all reduced to ruins.

The area of ​​the Forum, rectangular in shape, was arranged after the settlement of the Latin colony, resizing the previous public space of the Greek age, the agora, and removing a strip of territory from the area ( temenos ) of the southern sanctuary.

The Roman square is flanked by various public and religious buildings and shops and surrounded on three sides by at least a portico on a slightly raised floor. On the southern side stands a square and apsed building, built on a previous Greek construction, perhaps a stoà : four marble bases of columns are preserved from the imperial age phase placed around an octagonal structure, which has made to identify the complex with a macellum . This is followed by a rectangular building communicating with the previous one, with semi-columns leaning against the walls and an exedra: it is thought that this may be the curia . Under its southern wall are the remains of an Italic temple from the Roman Republican age. Another rectangular room represents the remains of the Terme , partially excavated and reconstructed; a small building with three podiums on the back wall was probably the city lararium .
