Dating back to 1738, the Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte (National Museum of Capodimonte) is located in the vast Capodimonte Park, in the Capodimonte area of Naples. The Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte is a grand neo-classical royal palace and is now home to Naples' picture gallery, the Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte.

Attractions at Naples' Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte include a large collection of old master paintings and decorative arts - one of the best known in the south of Italy. Some of the paintings and works of art are simply unmissable, such as 'Madonna' by Botticelli, 'Annunciation' by Filippino Lippi, and many other works by leading artists from all over Italy.

One room in Naples' Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte (National Museum of Capodimonte) is completely filled by five large masterpieces painted by Caravaggio and other rooms are devoted to Titian. An entire wing in this large Naples museum is dedicated to more than 3,000 pieces of stunning 18th-century porcelain figurines, and in another you will find a huge array of 19th-century watercolour screens of Naples and the Campanian countryside, revealing the true beauty of historic Naples.

Further attractions at the Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte in Naples include several galleries located on the top floor containing international contemporary art, including the famous 'Mount Vesuvius' by Andy Warhol, painted when the artist visited Naples in 1985.
