Posillipo

District Naples, Italy

Legendary Beauty Posillipo

Posillipo is a residential quarter of Naples, southern Italy, located along the northern coast of the Gulf of Naples; it is called Pusilleco in the Neapolitan language. From the 1st century BC the Bay of Naples witnessed the rise of villas constructed by elite Romans along the most panoramic points of the coast, who had chosen the area as a favorite vacation spot. The remains of some of these can be seen today in the archaeological park and elsewhere.
