The terrace overlooking Nisida and the bay is definitely worth a visit, especially if the weather is ok. It's a perfect location to take awesome pictures. Young Neapolitans used to take their girlfriends here, this is why it used to be called "pregnancy park"....

It is by no means a famous place with flocks of tourist, rather frequented by locals and young couples hanging around. But you can have a nice afternoon stroll here. The view of Capri, Ischia, Sorento is breathtaking. Only issue is too much of mosquito :)

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.

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... More

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... More

The park has amazing views. Just be sure you know how to get there as it can be confusing if you do not know your way around the area.

There used to be a saying "see Naples and die". This parks takes you out to a point where you can see Naples bay and Mt Vesusius to the left and the entire Baia coast with views of the islands of Ischia and Procida. Breathtaking
