The walk up the Posillipo Hill was the focus point of our trip. We started by walking up on a small street and ended in seeing the hill, with the entire bay area and Capri Totally worth it
The market on the hill was just like any other Napels market except it lacked in the food department. Wonderful views of the bay. The walking path/bike path is great to take a stroll with kids.
From the hill you can see the entire bay of Naples, Vesuvio and Capri, the sunset is magic! To go there you can get the bus 140, you can go to the top and then you can go downwards slowly...wonderful walk.
Can be reached from Mergellina metro station(line 6) or funicular station with the same name.From here you can walk on Via Orazio for an outstanding view of the city and the Gulf of Naples.Don't miss Belvedere di Sant'Antonio a Posillipo.Then you can descent on Rampe Sant'Antonio a Posillipo(a steep,sinuous old street) to Piazza Sannazzaro and Mergellina harbour.
