  • After passing through a tunnel of approximately 750 meters. Leads into a magical place. Beautiful and well maintained in amphitheatre overlooking the sea of trentaremi Bay. A wonderful place where you can enjoy spectacular views of Nisida, Miseno and Ischia. Then continue along the terrace from where you can enjoy the view on the islets of Gaiola. Spectacular view. The visit is of a high profile thanks to the expertise, the gentolezza and the discretion of staff accompanying visitors. A nice experience to be recommended to those who love beauty.

  • A wonderful place on the Hill of Posillipo. Through the cave, guided by excellent guides, we arrive to the archaeological site overlooking the sea ... a natural spectacle with stunning scenery of the campi flegrei and the Gulf of Naples.

  • For a couple of trips to Naples was planning to go, but need to make reservations at least one day before, when you are in a group, becomes an obstacle. This year I studied the path and after a first misfires, I managed to drag my 7 companions. The weather was a bit cloudy, but the scenery is beautiful. The guardian, a very friendly municipal employee who drove us, he deserved a tip. (The visit is free) After covering a 750 m long tunnel we enter among the remains of a Roman villa. It is not difficult to imagine the life that took place 2000 years ago.

  • Great way to spend the morning, going through a tunnel excavated so that Augustus could visit his friends during the winter when the seas are rough. The tour is in Italian so you will have to read up before or find a kindly Italian to translate for you. The tour starts around 1100 and you will have to book in advance.
  • This is absolutely a must for everyone who comes to.visit napoli
  • Great place to see
  • Beautiful archaeological site visit unforgettable. The visit lasts an hour, crossing the crypta of Seiano of about 900 meters built by Pollione in the days of Emperor Augustus for his villa located in a lovely place. The ns guide John June 25 cooperative has narrated in detail the history of this site which he deepened and that then makes the visit outstanding. Not to be missed.

  • An almost random discovery made our last day of vacation in Naples for a treat. From the cave of Sejanus, impressive for length, beauty and size, you get to the Archaeological Park of Pausillipon set in a breathtaking natural landscape. The area is managed, as with many reality Neapolitans, from an Association of young guys all really really good. Tickets cost 5 euros and there are precise times for visiting so it is best to book and find out. You can get there by taxi (about €20 Umberto I Gallery) or bus.
