Within the royal woods, formerly the Bourbon kings' hunting preserve, Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte was established in 1743 to house royal art collections. After the end of the monarchy in 1950, the location became a national museum, exhibiting some of Italy's finest artists. New visitors should aim for the Farnese Gallery on the second floor, home to Italian paintings by Raphael and Botticelli, and to Flemish painters, such as Van Dyck. The museum also displays Renaissance ivory and intricate tapestries, along with the Royal Apartments and the Porcelain Gallery.
