I visited on a hot sunny Sunday - it was busy! I unluckily missed the earlier tour in English because I got lost so was the only English speaker there. However, I still enjoyed the visit. There are enough signs in English to give you...More

This is a interesting place deserving attention. You must pre-book your ticket by calling the following number: 0812301030. The best is to go by taxi (20 minutes from the harbor at a cost of 15€) rather than by bus. It is much faster and easier....More

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.
