Caserta was used as the location for Queen Amidala's Royal Palace on Naboo in the 1999 film Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and again in the 2002 film Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones as Queen Jamilla's palace.

Also used in Mission: Impossible III as Vatican City. In fact, the square where the Lamborghini is blown up is actually the square inside the Palace.

The main staircase is also used in Angels & Demons as the Vatican's staircase.

When I was in elementary school our class would go here every year for a field trip. About the only think I remember about it though is the whale sized carp in the fountains. :)
