Worth a visit (with reservation) the  archaeological area. Posillipo was popular among the ancient Romans for its quiet beauty, as already demonstrated by the greek name Pausilypon (a break from troubles) and so there are the ruins of luxurious ancient Roman’s villas. In addition to the archaeological park you can also visit the Gaiola Underwater Park on kayaks or boats between cliffs, Roman ruins and marine structures of the Roman “Villa of Pausilypon”.
