Palazzo Reale

Enlarge for best view if you have time. Thank you.
Shot taken on 8th July, 2017 – second day of our Sorrento holiday.
Top shot is the façade of the Royal Palace in Naples. Bottom shot is one of the halls of the palace.
Christine and I visited the palace while all the rest of the group went touring the shopping area during some free time we had after our guided tour of Naples. I hate shopping and do not regret our decision.
The Royal Palace of Naples was one of the four residences near Naples used by the Bourbon Kings during their rule of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies (1734-1860) of which Malta formed part. It was completed in 1644 but along the years it was renovated or remodelled several times.
The statues along the ground floor of the façade show different kings who ruled the kingdom ending with Joachim Murat who was the husband of Napoleon Bonaparte’s younger sister, Caroline and also Marshal of France and Admiral of France.
Thank you so much for looking and for the comments and fav’s on yesterday’s picture.

Beautiful architecture and certainly a very impressive hallway. You could hold a ball in that hallway. Looks so good on black. Fave.
