Ruin Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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.
