  • On the highest point of the Hill of Posillipo through a monumental entrance, we find the Parco Virgiliano, formerly known as the Parco delle Rimembranze, commemorating the fallen of the great war, which covers an area of approximately 92,000 m ² and has several terraces overlooking the Gulf of Naples, from where you can admire at the peninsula-from Vesuvius to Sorrento- , the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida and Nisida, Posillipo coast, flegrea coast Coroglio from Pozzuoli to Capo Miseno. At the entrance we find a square in which dominates a fountain, Cascade, newly built; walk along a tree-lined Avenue, U-shaped where we can isolate ourselves from hectic city life, for a moment of reflection and meditation, in a green oasis of peace, finding shrubs of various species: Oaks, olive trees, Oaks and dense like undergrowth with Myrtle, Rosemary and mock PRIVET. This Park was also identified as a "literary Park", inspired by the theme of "the Grand Tour", Naples and consisted of billboards with songs or thoughts of 18th-century travelers such as Goethe. Along the way we also find a bust portraying Simon Bolívar and Mohandas Gandhi, a large amphitheater that hosts theatrical and musical performances of various kinds, as well as various playgrounds and the sport centre "Virgiliano", that includes an athletic track with grandstand. You can admire the remains of the villa of Pausilypon owned the Roman patrician Publio Ovidio Pollione. Ideal as a place of "rinfrancamento" physical and psychic.

  • Beautiful park renovated a few years ago. You can run, but you skating RoF enter to play ball, so as not to damage the grass. Many toys for kids and plenty of fresh air for grownups!

  • Fantastic both for young and old people. Inside there is an athletic field and a small theater that becomes alive in some special evenings.
  • Amazing views and peaceful park
  • Bella vista panoramica sulla baia di Napoli
  • Is one of wonders situated in the upper part of Posillipo. You can enjoy two panoramic views that we spend them on troop overlooks the Gulf of Naples and the other looking towards the area flegrea. The Park is equipped with cloisters bar and a small playground. The parking lot with blue stripes is the entrance

  • Beautiful park. Spectacular view. MTO space and playground. The play area at the entrance should be kept better. Recommended during the week and Saturdays and Sundays till 11, after too much chaos.
