It is not a simple excursion, but a guided tour to discover splendid coves, caves, protected marine areas, historical places and legends of Posillipo. In fact, the fame of this place dates back to the classical age. Greeks first, and Romans later, they chose Posillipo as a place of leisure and entertainment, thanks also to its extraordinary panorama of Naples, the Vesuvius, the Sorrento peninsula and the island of Capri. Even the etymology of its name derives from the Greek Pausilypon, which literally means “Respite from danger” or “that makes pain stop“.
Our tour to discover Posillipo begins with Neapolitan architecture masterpieces such as Villa Fiorita, Villa Rosebery, or places of legends such as Palazzo degli Spiriti and the famous “Fenestella a Marechiaro“.
We will stop near the splendid Marine Protected Area of Gaiola, which is rich in marine biodiversity and submerged archaeological remains. This place is perfect especially for the most intrepid people who want to jump into the water and do some snorkeling.
Finally, we will arrive in Baia Trentami, in front of the Island of Nisida, for a relaxing break and to take a nice photo group.
An unforgettable moment in contact with nature, with zero environmental affect, while enjoying an excellent glimpse of the city, which seen from the sea reveals all its beauty.

Introdution to PosillipoSince ancient times Posillipo has been a place of leisure and relaxation. The Greeks first and later the Roman aristocratic classes chose Posillipo as a resting place away from the eventful Roman political and military life. In fact, Posillipo comes from the Greek Pausilypon, which literally means, "Respite from worry" or "that makes the pain to stop". Also from here, you can admire the amazing panoramic view of the entire Gulf of Naples, including the Vesuvius, the Sorrento Coast and the Island of Capri. Posillipo is also famous for its splendid villas overlooking the sea, below we list a few:
