The park is beautiful, with paths and benches. The area in front of the villa is (or at least was this morning) filled with toddlers and their mothers, grandmothers and nannies. We enjoyed watching the show for quite a while. Then went into the villa itself, which is two things in one -- a wonderful house, with beautiful ceilings and... More

This museum is housed in a large park and is easily reached from the Vanvitelli Metro station. There is a collection of porcelain including pottery from China and Japan but there is not much information in English. There is a cafe in the garden and some amazing views from the terrace.

This villa houses amongst other things a large and varied collection of ceramics from Europe and Asia. There are also lovely gardens, providing an oasis of calm to escape the bustle of Naples. Particularly spectacular is the Panorama over the bay. The gardens are free of charge.

This was nice place to visit to escape the heat of the day. Pretty gardens, although some work being undertaken so some paths closed off. Also, I visited on a Tuesday when the ceramics museum was closed so would choose a different day in future. Overall, a nice place in a good area of naples with access to some good... More

…..in a beautiful, well-maintained building, with clean and well-lit cases, excellent labelling but above all a tremendous collection. Varied, comprehensive and of the highest quality, the displays of the major Italian manufactories are complimented by rare pieces from the minor ones and outstanding groups of French and German ceramics, including several unique pieces. Room after room of treasures, rarities and... More

This is a small garden in a beautiful area of the city-much smaller than expected and containing nothing much of interest other than some fabulous tall trees. Some interesting looking areas are cordoned off so you can't go anywhere other than the main walkway through the middle of the park. We couldn't find the viewpoint out to sea. Glad it... More

Go up there using the funicular, it is very easy and pleasant, only 1 euro of charge. Walk right down the road and you reach the entrance. The PARC is full of locals, taking walks. Beautiful place but to a great extend it is closed to the public by fences that look to have been there for ages. We did... More

I went here last year and it was fantastic. Visited today to find the museum and most of the park closed off!! Annoyingly there is nothing about this on the website, which I checked last night. A wasted trip to Vomero.....
