Gorgeous view

Gorgeous views all along the coast. This part of Naples is a nice retreat away from the busy city centre, featuring small shops, cafes, and restaurants. Definitely worth a visit!

This has to be one of the best, if not THE best, spots for taking in the beautiful view across the Bay of Naples, with Vesuvius brooding in the background. I caught the C140 bus from the stop near Galleria Umberto and I have since found out that this is also a stop on the hop on hop off sightseeing... More

via virgiale(sp?) market 9-2pm on thursdays is for real treasure hunters seeking fine quality clothing at rock bottom prices. cashmere,furs, leather,clothing--all designer at 5-10% of retail. nope-not kidding! The view from the parco is also lovely and overlooking the Med. A treat I never miss when in town.

As part of a day trip from Rome, I rented a car to go to Naples and Pompeii and Posilipo was our first stop to view the breathtaking lookout of Naples, Mt. Vesuvius, Capri and Amalfi. This was absolutely stunning and a great photo spot to take in the beauty of Italy. The mountains are steep and the roads are... More

This is the most expensive real estate in Italy. Why? Because it's been coveted for millennia. Everyone who was anyone in ancient Rome wanted a villa overlooking the Bay of Naples -- and that's what Posillipo offers. We recommend you take a taxi up here (very cheap in Naples) perhaps at sunset... it's especially glittery at night, though. You really... More

Take a great view of the city and the gulf. Go with a cab, it is easier. A lot of places where to eat

We were on Posillipo Hill with the hop-on hop-off bus and it was beautiful. The view that opened up once we got there was amazing. You can see the marina and the seafront and if there's good weather like we had you get to see a wonderful view of Mount Vesuvius.

I am standing on a terrace in Naples,on a headland called Posillipo,looking at the bay. To my left,through umbrella pines,the city red,ochre and sepia born from centuries of wear (well worn,indeed), forms a crescent towards Vesuvius. The volcano,in turn,sweeps down a long arc of the Sorrentine Peninsula,which constituting the southern arm of this gulf,faces me across a few kms of... More

We hung out here with some fruit, cheese, and a bottle of wine (we planned to do this), after which, we took our open-top tour bus back to the starting point near the castle on the water front. It felt like such an Italian-style experience. Passing locals either didn't notice us or smiled approvingly- and a view they see everyday.
