Parco Archeologico Pausilypon, Naples

4.8
Parco Archeologico Pausilypon has an entrance through the Cave of Sejanus, a 700 m (2,300 ft) tunnel. This tunnel connects the valley of Gaiola to the plain of Bagnoli. After passing through the cave or coming in via the alternative entrance, you’ll find the Imperial Villa of Pausilypon, containing a theater with 2,000 seats, as well as the first-century BCE Palace of the Spirits. A sea excursion allows you to admire the remains of the underwater Gaiola park, a protected marine area. Arrive early, as access to some areas may be restricted before closing time.

    The visit was brief (just over an hour) but intense: it starts from the grotta di Seiano on the western slope of the Hill of Posillipo and you come across (passing in the gallery), where you can admire the theaters and other buildings. Viewpoint on the Bay Trentaremi Bay and the Bay of Gaiola are great as well. The guide was very good: the explanations were comprehensive but brief, not bored and made it possible to appreciate the district very well. A must do

    An unparalleled archaeological place, often unknown to Neapolitans but effective and especially important cultural landscape. The Archaeological Park of Pausilypon engages in a path from past to present through a long tunnel dug by the Romans and later by the Bourbons. At the exit of this I found myself in an enchantment, 270 degree views of the Gulf of pozzuoli with boundless view. If this panorama we add a theatrical performance available from the bleachers of the ancient Greek Theatre bring a touch of class and culture. These are the things about which we Neapolitans should be proud of it and proud to expose.

  • This is absolutely a must for everyone who comes to.visit napoli
  • Great place to see
  • Magnificent views of the landscape. You can get there with guided tour through la Grotta di Seiano. Absolutely worth the money. Great job from the boys of the cooperative that organize visits.

  • Place straordinatrio. The Gallery, over 700 metres and well-lit leads to an archaeological area of absolute respect, with breathtaking views of the Bay. Not to be missed.

  • A wonderful place ... not only from historical and archaeological point of view but also natural, on one side you can admire a breathtaking panorama that goes from the Bay of Trentaremi Bay until Calgary, and Procida, the island of Gaiola. Everything was made more enjoyable and interesting by the explanations of John, simple municipal employee, as he holds to State "I am not a tour guide" but perhaps is more ... loves what she does and she does love to those who listen.

Where to stay in Naples

Naples' lodging options include everything from turn-of-the-century historical mansions to hip boutique hotels. For a five-star experience in the heart of town, book a centrally located luxury hotel. Less expensive but just as comfortable, traditional inns just outside the central area offer peaceful comfort, private parking, and private outdoor space ideal for quiet dinners and small parties. If you are looking for a less urban experience and prefer to stay in a leafy neighborhood, consider the city's residential suburbs.
