Caserta Palace - Naples, Italy

For today's post, I thought I would share a few pictures from my (temporary) home in Naples, Italy. I see so many beautiful things that it would be a shame not to share some of that beauty with you guys. Last week, we visited Caserta Palace, built in 1780. This place is so beautiful!









But my favorite part were the reading rooms. Beautiful books in THREE reading rooms! Man, I would give anything for three reading rooms.























Hope you enjoyed this little peek into Italian royalty. I look forward to sharing more pictures of my Italian adventures in the future!

    1. Thanks Rachel! Yeah this place probably isn't on the list of must sees if someone is visiting. I guess that's why I am glad I get to live here. I see places that not all tourists have a chance to. :)

    1. No problem Shannon! Italy was always on my bucket list, but I never would have thought about visiting southern Italy. That is why I am so glad I live here. Naples has some beautiful sights.

    1. Bahahaha Chyna. Yes, I would agree that it is hard to watch your figure here. On the other hand, it is way easier to not overdo it when eating out. The portions here are actually normal size portions, unlike some restaurants in America. You can clean your plate without feeling sick! I hope you get here some day. :)
