We recently experienced a wonderful driving tour booked through Le Baccanti. Our driver was able to tell us stories and information about all the places we were visiting. The driver included stops for photo opportunities in some of the most beautiful sights along the way. It was a pleasure to have this driver as our personal guide for the day. The Royal Palace of Caserta was enchanting and magnificent. The garden is enormous and well-kept, and the royal apartments are amazing. Thank you for a great experience!

The perfect Port of Naples shore excursion for families or small groups
An excellent way to spend the day outside of Naples' hustle and bustle
Visit a beautiful UNESCO World Heritage site
Guide yourself through the castle's famous gardens and interiors
Visit an amazing local winery and taste fantastic local wine
Your English-speaking driver with a private luxury car or minivan will come to collect you at your accommodations in Naples or from your cruise ship docked in the Naples port. You'll be off from there to discover the stunning countryside outside of Naples, and you'll spend this unique day away from the tourist crowds in Naples and the rest of the Amalfi Coast.
Your first stop on the full-day Royal Palace of Caserta and wine tour will be to the amazing Reggia di Caserta - Royal Palace of Caserta. A monumental UNESCO World Heritage site, this massive palace rivals the most impressive palaces in the world, including Versaille, with whom it shares many similar attributes. At the Royal Palace you'll have ample time to tour the gardens, the interiors or both if the decision is too difficult! You will have around two hours to explore this beautiful palace on your own.
Your private tour continues onward in the late morning as your driver will take you further off the beaten tourist path. You'll head out further into the countryside surrounding the town of Caiazzo and will be driven to to the lovely ALEPA winery. Here you will meet the winery owner, and join the winery's staff for a tour of the family-owned vineyard and olive groves deliciously producing top-rated local wines and extra-virgin olive oil. Your expert English-speaking winery expert will lead you through a guided visit of the cantina, while teaching you about local traditions in southern Italian wine-making production. Also included in your enological exploration will be a brief lesson about the local grape varieties including Pallagrello and Riccio, as well as the more famous varieties of Aglianico and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Pallagrello was King Ferdinand IV's most prized variety, who decreed this as the official grape of the Royal Palace of Caserta during his reign. You will also learn about extra-virgin olive oil before relaxing around the table on the patio for a delicious light lunch the winery staff has prepared just for you.
Your special, fresh meal will feature local specialties accompanied by a guided tasting of the wines produced locally. In the afternoon, your driver will accompany you into a small town like Caiazzo, Alife or Sant'Agata dei Goti for a stroll through the town's ancient city centers. Get a glimpse into authentic Italian life in this undisturbed corner of Italy, far removed from the hustle and bustle of tourist towns along the Amalfi Coast or Naples itself.
The private Royal Palace of Caserta and Wine Tour from Naples provides the perfect shore excursion if your time in southern Italy is limited, and you have only one day to experience true Italian life in Naples.
Pick-up and drop-off at your accommodations within Naples' city center, or should you searching for a shore excursion, we can also easily arrange for a pick-up directly at your port of call.
