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.

This is a great way to see the bay of Naples from afar. Posillipo Hill is one of the best view points to see the bay and surrounding area.

Posillipo has great views of the bay, whilst retaining a village type feel with lots of original boutiques and little cafes and bars. A good place for a stroll.

Take a walk along the waterfront west of downtown Naples and you begin to climb Posillipo Hill. The shore road towers over several dozen "beach homes" (that cost severl million dollars each) and within about a mile from the docks, you have a view worthy of a National Geopgraphic cover picture. The "beach houses" are far below the road and... More

The walk up the Posillipo Hill was the focus point of our trip. We started by walking up on a small street and ended in seeing the hill, with the entire bay area and Capri Totally worth it

The market on the hill was just like any other Napels market except it lacked in the food department. Wonderful views of the bay. The walking path/bike path is great to take a stroll with kids.
