Owner description: Pausilypon was the Villa d’otium build by roman knight Publio Vedio Pollio. When Pollio died (15 b.C.) it was given in legacy to the emperor Augustus, becoming an official imperial estate. It is located in one of the most fascinating places in Naples with a fantastic view over the Bay of Naples.The gateway to the villa was given by the monumental Seiano’s cave (a tunnel 770 meters long caved in the hillside of Posillipo).

“Pompee was fascinating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Our private tour guide was wonderful and it was amazing to finally see the site we had heard about since we were kids- quite a large place and interesting. A bit hard to walk on some of the paths, as the stones were big and there were gaps between them. Would highly recommend a visit but not in the heat and humidity of July which we had!!

“a real winner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

escape the summer heat of naples at this interesting, fun, manageable, & glorious setting. stand onstage of the theaters augustus saw plays in - it was one of his favorite summer getaways. a sequestered site accessed thru an 800 meter grotto with an incredible view of ischia, procida & capri with breezes blowing. charming tour guide antonella lead myself & a friend & 4 neopolitans thru a leisurely tour of the site (we had the entire bucolic place to ourselves) & afterwards my friend & i descended to the beach below where i had a long swim. then 100 meters from there was the bus back to the train station, where we had a beer while waiting. we were back in the center of naples in plenty of time to get on with our evening's plan. you must reserve in advance, but the charge per person is only 5e - such a deal!
