Costa and the Naples’ Museo and Real Bosco di Capodimonte join forces to foster one of the most important parts of Italy’s artistic, cultural and botanical heritage.
Our activity taking countless thousands of tourists to the world’s finest destinations so they can appreciate their superb cultural attractions and natural scenery is closely linked to our determination to allow the public at large to discover local heritage and traditions, often in places that are off the beaten track.
The project developed in partnership with Naples’ Museo and Real Bosco di Capodimonte for the promotion of this former royal residence with its extensive grounds is another step in this direction in line with our mission to work side-by-side with the Ministry for Cultural Affairs so as to help enhance Italy’s finest with specific regard to the country’s inimitable heritage. The aim of the alliance is to increase the number of international visitors to the Museo di Palazzo Reale and the adjoining Bosco pastoral park. Cruise guests now have the chance to appreciate the Farnese art collection – one of Europe’s most impressive, with works from the 13th century to the contemporary period, comprising many unique but relatively unknown masterpieces. To this end we are running organized shore tours to Capodimonte, and promoting them on board by means of a special video and other educational initiatives designed to ensure that visitors make the most of this opportunity to discover the site’s artistic wonders and splendid grounds.
