Pausilypon was the Villa d’otium build by roman knight Publio Vedio Pollio. When Pollio died (15 b.C.) it was given in legacy to the emperor Augustus, becoming an official imperial estate. It is located in one of the most fascinating places in Naples with a fantastic view over the Bay of Naples.The gateway to the villa was given by the monumental Seiano’s cave (a tunnel 770 meters long caved in the hillside of Posillipo).

You need a car or taxi to reach Grotta di Seiano but you will be happy to visit this place: after a short walk in a "Grotto" great panoramas are offered to your eyes!

This site requires reservations and is somewhat hard to find. Make sure you get good bus/walking instructions from Google. Also make sure to find out when the English language tour will be given. That said, the site is an amazing piece of the Roman empire...a...More

Beautiful and Unexplored but finally opened to the public, this Old Roman Theatre is in the middle of the most beautiful part of the Southern Capital of Italy. It is a must if you want to see different side of Naples.

Beautiful and Mysterious Pausilypon Theatre on the hills of now called Posillipo. Lovely view of the Crystalline Sea. Our Tour Guide was really friendly and passionate about this site.
