Attraction details
Owner description: 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).

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 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 information. The views are great, the amphitheatre great to see. If you have time - go!

It is a "must see" place if you are or are planning a visit to Naples.
Yopu start this journey in the past travelling through a grotto (tunnel is more appropriate) built 100 years before Christ. After few minutes you can literally jump into the past as you get a wonderful Roman Villa with two theatres. To conclude the visit there is a nice panorama on Nisida and La Gaiola: you can also see Ischia and the Vesuvius of course. The guided tour is very cheap and it is better to book your place few days before.
