Fodor's Expert Review Pausilypon Archaeological Park

Mergellina and Posillipo Ruins
Free Fodor's Choice

Located at the top of Posillipo's hill, this small yet magical complex has a 1st-century villa and two amphitheaters; access is though the Grotta di Seiano, a 2,500-foot tunnel cut though the tufa rock over two millenia ago. Free guided tours (in Italian, book ahead) are given at 9:30, 10:30, and 11:30 Monday to Saturday, with more detailed tours given at noon from Tuesday through Sunday. Evening concerts are often held here in the summer.
