The Villa Floridiana in Naples is a large park in the Vomero section of the city, from which it overlooks the western Neapolitan suburbs of Chiaia and Mergellina. The villa dates from 1816 when Ferdinand I of the House of Bourbon, King of the Two Sicilies, acquired the property. The King then donated the property as the site for a vacation residence to his morganatic wife, Luisa Migliaccio Partanna, duchess of Floridia, from which the villa has taken its name. The neoclassical residence and surrounding gardens were built between 1817-19. The Villa currently houses the Duke of Martina National Museum of Ceramics.
