On the waterfront of Naples since 1826 the English baronet Ferdinand Richard Acton had his villa built with a park that extended to the top of the hill behind. The Villa was then bought by the Rothschilds, by the Pignatelli family and finally given to...More

I went on an inclement day and was the only visitor. The interior is small but has been nicely restored. However, other than the pleasant lady on the till, the staff seem to be hostile to visitors. There’s no signage so it’s unclear where to...More

The villa and its grounds (and its ducks) are grand indeed, and at least when we were there, there was only a handful of other visitors. The carriage museum on the villa grounds was unexpectedly engaging; we're not particularly interested in such things, but the...More

Came here after my wonderful visit to the Fondazione Plart as it's easy to find, going down towards the Villa Comunale. The Villa is officially called the Pignatelli Cortes Museum and was owned by both the Rothschilds and the Pignatelli Cortes family. Entrance is 5...More

Located in Riviera di Chiaia in a garden nearby the sea this neoclassical house is very impressive as it still has a feel of how the high society of Naples lived sometime ago.

The Villa museum (ground floor) was very interesting. Even the visitor's lobby had large decorated vases, and the hosts could look down from the upper level. The lighting fixtures, the chandeliers, the ornate mirrors were a sight to behold. Lots of richly decorative wares, with...More

This former royal villa is now a small museum and conference centre with an attractive landscaped garden. It was originally built for an englishman, Sir John Acton at the end of the eighteenth century. The coach collection is worth the trip alone.

Well worth a visit we thought it was a real insight into how the other half lived in the 19th and early 20th century. The coach museum was especially interesting and had a amazing collection of old coaches and asocciated equipment well worth the €5...More
