" Stunning"

We took the open top bus to Posillipo on a beautiful sunny day, the views are amazing as are the Villas and architectural buildings along the way.

Got to Posillipo mid-afternoon to enjoy the views, shops and restauranst! Such a beautiful and pretty town and so glad we came. Spent the afternoon eating and wandering along the pretty streets admiring the gorgeous shops all busy with visitors. Bought some lovely, locally made mementos and made our way back to Naples with our driver.

Take the Metro 2 line, stop in Mergellina, get an icecream before at Chalet Ciro, walk all the way up Via Posillipo (side by the sea) and enjoy the most beautiful view in front of the gulf of Naples and on the beautiful villas by the sea. It's also possible to swim in some points

This is a really well preserved amphitheatre, huge, and beautiful and you just wander around on your own - it really is special.

Naples can be a tad unbearable during the Summer. Beautiful as the city is, the heat and humidity can make a walk to Centro Storico seem like hard labout. On days like that, don't hesitate to take the bus up the hill to Posillipo. The wind is refreshing, the view of Vesuvius and Capri great for pictures, you can actually... More

We had no time to spend some more time in Posillipo, like being on the beach and take a bath, swim and other proper activities on the shore of the sea but we decided to make some longer ramble along the seaside and take the pictures of the fantastic views of the Naples Bay from this spot and further across...

The GPS took me to a platform from which you have a great view of the bay of Naples and Vesuvius. Come here just before sunset for the best lighting. I was a bit early and, unfortunately, had to leave. I may stop by again on my way back in a week,
