Why locals love it

At sunset this place is a magical location of breathtaking beauty in a historic site. The view here is truly unique – the island of Procida, Ischia and the Isthmus of Nisida are really in the palm of your hand. In the ancient Villa there are spas, gardens and a theater, which is still used in the summer.

Why you should visit it

The villa is built by adapting the architecture to the nature of the site. The Villa can be reached through a tunnel dug from la Grotta di Seiano into the hill of Posillipo, it's quite impressive. The ancient Roman Patricians really knew where to build their luxurious villas and how to spend their leisure.

Special tip

Neapolitans love to use this place for making marriage proposals.

This is an ancient roman villa (villa means a small town); you can visit an interesting roman theater, passing through a grotto (Seiano). The view from this villa is amazing, you can admire the Gaiola Marine park.
