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.

Beautiful interior decorating, ornaments and mirrors. Manicured gardens and is this Villa and museum a little oasis in the busy and dense populated Naples. Give a very good idea how the rich lived in the good old days. A must see.
