  • To reach the site, which in Greek means place that gives peace, you have to cross the grotta di Seiano, old two thousand years and operates that Cocceius of crypta neapolitana; works of high engineering compared to the times! From Pausilypon offers views of Nisida, Procida Procida but also of Cala Trentaremi Bay, the island of Gaiola, as Goethe said, speaking of Posillipo: "this evening we went to the grotto of Posillipo in the moment when the Sun, setting, go through its rays to the opposite side. I have forgiven everyone who loses their minds for this town»

  • 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.
