If you visit the city during the spring, in the months of April, May and June, you could expect to spend a part of a day in one park of Naples. Here we propose 5 parks where you can easily go even during the warm summer days of July, August and September.
A very famous park of Naples is the one in Capodimonte which also houses the Reggia di Capodimonte, one of the most prestigious palaces in the city where you can admire very important artistic collections such as the Farnese one. It is a very old park as it opened in 1743. It is 124 hectares big. From this park of Naples, you can enjoy one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the city.
Posillipo Archaeological Park, also known as Pausilypon
You can access this park of Naples descending via Coroglio 36 and crossing the cave of Seiano. It is located between two of the most beautiful bays of Naples, the Gaiola one and the Trentaremi one. In the same area you can visit very important archaeological remains dating back to the first century BC: the imperial villa of Pausilypon, the theatre, the Odeion and the villa degli Spiriti. It is one of the most iconic example of those places where nature and culture coexist.
The park of Naples Virgiliano is in the upper area of the city, precisely in the Posillipo district. It was built at the beginning of the 20th century and was dedicated only afterwards to the Roman poet Virgilio. It is also known as the Park of Remembrance for this reason. Pay attention to not confuse this park with that of the Vergiliano in Piedigrotta, where there are the tombs of Virgil and Leopardi.
Parco del Poggio is a park in Naples that is in Capodimonte too. In this park there was a Roman burial monument which was then destroyed. As in the other parks described, also in this park there are points from which you can see wonderful panoramas of the volcano of Naples, Vesuvius. In addition, the park has a specific area designed for children.
