The roots of the name “Echia” remain uncertain, its origin swings between the myths of Venus and Hercules. The history of this ancient name, whether originating from “beauty” or “strength” is also the history of the hill, Monte Echia, you see rising up behind the Grand Hotel Vesuvio, thus explaining the tribute the hotel has chosen to pay these mythical slopes. It was into these waters that the mermaid Parthenope desperately threw herself, after having tried in vain to bewitch the elusive Ulysses. It was here, on these shores of the most beautiful bay in the world, that the ancient nucleus of Naples was born. It was here, at the foot of the Echia hill, that, in the IX century B.C., the Greeks founded “Parthenope”, which later become “Palepolis”, the “old town”. The Greek settlers, whose skill and experience as explorers and in the selection of new territories could not be matched, could not help but end their search here: the magic of the bay, the luxurious slopes, the fruitfulness of the sea, the sulphurous water springs of Monte Echia were too great and divine, an offering of human delights.
