After passing through the cave or coming in via the alternative entrance, you’ll find the Imperial Villa of Pausilypon, containing a theater with 2,000 seats, as well as the first-century BCE Palace of the Spirits. A sea excursion allows you to admire the remains of the underwater Gaiola park, a protected marine area. Arrive early, as access to some areas may be restricted before closing time.

  • Outstanding archeological memento of the Roman age. The guided tour is great, and walks you through what the site originally was. Stunning views as well!Amazing place must add to your visit list. Tricky to get to, the buses are every hour!
