Parco Virgiliano lies at the top of Posillipo hill with a view over the entire gulf from Sorrento to Pozzuoli with the islands in the distance. Currently being renovated, the park has lovely walks with superb views over the landscape that can be seen from the parapets in the park's main avenue. This is reached via a monumental entrance at the top of Viale Virgilio. Umbrella pines, eucalyptus and Mediterranean scrub cover an area where small avenues lead down the hill to terraces over the bays beneath, including the famous Trentaremi, or to small and modern amphitheatres. It is popular with Neapolitans even late in the evening; the park has a sports center with athletics facilities and body building equipment.
