Not too far from Napoli. I drove through there in 2006. Caserta is the location of the Regia di Caserta, a huge palace built for the Bourbon Kings of Naples. In modern times it was the location of Queen Amidala's Palace in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.. I guarantee the food there is better than in Russia.
