A bit hard to get there, it took us around 1.5 hr, first we took bus 140 and then, to get closer, bus c21 for like 3 mins.
The park was not crowded on Tuesday, some people jogging, some having picknicks, families and young companies, peaceful and beautiful.

The Virgilian Park (also called "of the Remembrance" in Neapolitan dialect) is a scenic park that is situated in the district of Posillipo.
It is accessible from Viale Virgilio, through a monumental entrance that leads to an open space in which stands a fountain of recent construction.
The park is characterized by a system of terraces overlooking the Bay giving visitors the chance to enjoy a panorama that includes the main wonders of the Gulf of Naples: the islands of Procida, Ischia and Capri, the island of Nisida, the Gulf of Pozzuoli, the neighborhoods of Agnano, Fuorigrotta, the Hermitage of Camaldoli, the Gulf of Bacoli, Monte di Procida, the Vesuvius, the coast Vesuvius, Sorrento Peninsula.
The park is also an amphitheater built by the real nineteenth century, where they still play some shows.
When I was very young, the park was quite deserted and people took advantage of it to go to make love, drink or take drugs.
The park after a first restructuring in the nineties, on the occasion of the World Cup, was again refitted in 2000 with playgrounds for children. In addition to the Belvedere and the "Valley of Kings", the park contains a track sport of athletics entrusted to manage the associations.

This parc is a bit out of the way, and when taking the bus (140) you will still need to walk up a hill to access it - but it is totally worth it! The parc is great with lots of areas for relaxing in the shade of trees, and also playgrounds for kids. The views of the Bay are spectacular and definitely recommand at sunset.

The park is really small when compared to others around the world, but it's really unique. It is very quiet and peaceful during weekdays, but it's way too crowded during the weekends, since it's one of the few green areas of the city and locals always go there, young people and families. The view is breath taking, on both sides of the gulf, with a great perspective of the Trentaremi bay. It's the best spot to see the sunset, a sight you won't forget. Lovely spot for picnics on the grass

I approached the Parco Virgiliano on a busy local clothes and household goods Market,it was vibrant full of locals trying to pick up a bargain.The Park in contrast was lovely and tranquil with fabulous views of the coast and Islands.I enjoyed a relaxing morning at the Market and visiting the Park
