Overview

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).

Hidden from the normal tourist path, this place is quite nice. It is well maintained, and offers tours that are informative. Small venue so it only takes about 1.5 hours to do the whole thing.

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!

I enjoyed this trip very much. I found this place fascinating and would definitely recommend this place for adults. The weather was very sunny which helped make this day even better.

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.

Because you can go below stairs, so to speak, you get an understanding of the the amazing logistics of Roman spectacles. The arena held more than most Premier League stadia. Information there is only moderate.

I don't know about Pausilypon as we didn't have time to get there but this is the link for the boat, it's 10 euros. Trip advisor won't let me post a link so google baiasommersa and it'll come up. It's in Italian not English.
