This is less hectic than central Naples and is the place where the more wealthy inhabitants live. Lovely views of the city and bay and some good ice cream shops too. Go by train or bus.

Great views from the road, but it is hard to get some place to eat before 8PM and there are only two places for swimming

We took the funiculars up to Posillipo and enjoyed an amazing afternoon with unbelievable views of the bay of Naples and great views overlooking Naples. We enjoyed a drink in the square at the top and visited some of the unique shops.
