The marble double-staircase was first designed by Francesco Antonio Picchiatti in 1651 and later modified for Gaetano Genovese. The lower section of the staircase features multiple military trophies, while the marble balustrade supports a pair of 19th-century iron lights from Royal Officine di Pietrarsa. The use of colored marble for the staircase is a contrast to the austere style of the rest of the palace.
The Court Theatre or Teatrino di Corte served as the private theater for the royal family and was lavishly decorated. The theater was built in 1768 by Ferdinando Fuga since the royal family and viceroys could not go to the theater for reasons of decorum.
Also called the Hall of Hercules, the ballroom is decorated with some stunning Sevres vases and Neapolitan tapestries. The room also features portraits of numerous viceroys and tapestries from the Royal Factory of Naples.
