Dream of Italy Season 3: Caserta - A Palace and Pizza

Dream of Italy: Episode 303 with Chef Franco Pepe

Did you know that there’s a 1,000-room palace in southern Italy that rivals Versailles? Join host Kathy McCabe as we travel to Caserta to visit this very special Reggia di Caserta (it even made an appearance in Star Wars). The province is also home to captivating ancient ruins where gladiators once fought at Santa Maria Capua Vetere. And a little town nearby just might be home to the world’s best pizza made by the lauded Chef Franco Pepe at his famed Pepe in Grani.
