Vanvitelli's plan for the Pailace o Caserta.

The Ryal Pailace o Caserta (Reggia di Caserta) it is also called the Palazzo Reale di Caserta is a palaice outside Caserta near Naples (the old Kinrick o Naples) in Italy. The palace has 5 floors, 1,200 rooms, including twa dozen state apartments, a muckle library, an a theatre modelled after the Teatro San Carlo o Naples. A monumental avenue that would run 20 kilometers atween the pailace and Naples wis planned but niver realised. It is one o the mucklest pailaces erected in Europe during the 18th century. In 1997, the pailace was designated a UNESCO Warld Heritage Steid. It would later be the center for the ryal coort o the Bourbons o the Twa Sicilies (after 1816).
