  • The Park of village Trentaremi promontory extends from the Valley Pausilypon Gaiola. You can opt for a hiking trail on foot and from the cave of Sejanus, leads to environmental Archaeological Park of Pausylipon with its stunning views of the Campi flegrei, the coast of Posillipo and the underwater Park of Gaiola. It is also possible to observe remains submerged archaeological and marine organisms directly from the glass-bottomed boat, in a most amazing and fascinating coastal landscape between the Gulf of Naples. For those who can devote more time and want to fully enjoy the wonders of the coast, there is an integrated land and sea route between the Archaeological Park of Gaiola Submerged Pausilypon and Park. Starting from the Grotta di Seiano you will come directly to the visitor center of G. After visiting the remains of the Villa of Pollio on we will embark on a visit of the coast by sea. Even for those who can do so there is a chance to wear wetsuits, fins and mask for an excursion underwater.

  • Me and my girlfriend we participated in the exhibition "Pausilypon: suggestions at dusk" and it was a very enjoyable afternoon. We were very well received, accompanied in the guided tour and we enjoyed the refreshments which we were offered. Dulcis in fundo, watch the play from the Amphitheater was very impressive.

  • Go enjoy this wonder of archaeological site! An extra effort of the municipal administration for maintenance and cleaning wouldn't hurt. ... Wonderful sunset from the excavations with background the island of Ischia.
