  • I visited the Park on the occasion of the exhibition "suggestions". Guided tour followed by an aperitif and the play. Spectacular location and excellent organization.

  • Wonderful escape through a cave built in Roman times to find themselves on the promontory of Posillipo where they lived Augustus, Hadrian and other Roman emperors. The view then you will enjoy views of the Gulf of Naples, Capri, the Gulf of Pozzuoli, Vesuvio, Ischia and Procida are unmatched.

  • 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.
