The Bay of Naples and the hill of Posillipo

The tour will give you an immediate glimpse of the beauty of the city which fascinated entire peoples from the ancient Greeks, Romans, and medieval poets to the tireless travelers on the nineteenth century “Grand Tour”.

Initially we follow the promenade of Naples, touching the magical original nucleus of the city, Castel dell’ Ovo, its underlying village “Borgo Marinari”, heading west on Via Caracciolo where you pedal along Naples promenade, once the beach serving the old fishing district of Naples, the folk neighborhood of Mergellina and elegant Chiaia, now a popular spot for a walk or a bar crawl.

A light, steady climb takes us on the hill of Posillipo, a panoramic oasis so close and yet far from the city, dear to poets and nobles, with its villas overlooking the sea, the bold road that bypasses caves and gullies and crosses with the winding down that lead the former agricultural villages of the hill, to the green sea sailed by the fishing boats.

As final reward of our pedaling, we reach the Virgilian Park, which dominates the top of the hill, a very popular place among the Neapolitans for its green and especially the superb view of the Bay of Naples with Vesuvius and Capri, Ischia and Procida.
