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.

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.

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.

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.
