Naples with sea view

Posillipo

The hill of Posillipo is without doubt one of the most beautiful and prestigious areas in Naples. The elegant buildings, villas hidden by vegetation and breathtaking views overlooking the sea make it a must see for tourists, celebrated for its beauty.Posillipo is the ideal place to stay in the Neapolitan capital, the name says it all. Pausilypon in fact means "rest from troubles," and here, no doubt, the relaxation is assured, outside the hustle and bustle of the city.

Here you will find Villa Rosbery, Neapolitan current residence of the President of the Republic. While in the sea, off the coast of Cape Posillipo, lie the submerged remains of a villa that jutted out of the sea, thanks to artificial constructions. On the Bay of Trentaremi there are the remains of a large Roman theater. While the Parco Virgiliano, at the tip of Cape Posillipo, deeply renovated in 2002, offers stunning sea view terraces overlooking the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Pozzuoli, where you can sit outdoors and practice sports.

For a holiday in Naples Posillipo is the ideal place, especially for those who want to avoid the chaos and traffic, enjoy the sea and relax. The choice is quite wide including hotels, B&Bs and holiday homes.

The Best Western Hotel Paradiso, for example, is right on the Posillipo hill, and enjoys a spectacular view of the Gulf of Naples, with the backdrop of Mount Vesuvius and the Amalfi Coast to the Isle of Capri.

The Residenza Villa Le Rose is a B&B where the decor of the rooms was entirely handled by the art director Raymonde la Motte, which carefully selected every detail. Works and installations of contemporary art characterize the entire structure.

The Bed and Breakfast La Bouganville is located in a building of 5 floors with a terrace and garden. The location is extremely quiet but well connected, so you can easily reach the main areas of Naples. The garden here is the highlight, especially in summer, when you can linger outside in the evening or enjoy a nice breakfast outdoors, surrounded by greenery.

The Vista Mare B&B is located 10 meters from the beach with beach facilities, close to the marina of Mergellina and the area that stands out for its nightlife.The B&B is housed in a building of the early '900.In the living room, overlooking the beach, there is also a wonderful fireplace where, in the cooler evenings, you can sip tea in the comfort of your couch.

For families, the B&B La Nave, which owes its name to the particular form of "ship", offers a beautiful garden with barbecue and children's playground. For a holiday in complete freedom, it is possible to rent an apartment, as the Gaiolella, for example, a vacation home in the annex of a villa of '800, nestled in the green hills of Posillipo.

Each to his own, in other words, always surrounded by the beauty and tranquility of a landscape that might seem impossible in a large city like Naples.
