Campi Flegrei | Campi Flegrei is an extremely interesting place due to its history, archeology and geology. In this area just a few kilometers from Naples, the Greeks founded Cumae in the eighth century B.C., their first settlement on the Italian peninsula. Later the Romans settled in Pozzuoli giving life to one of the most important ports of ancient times, famous for the beneficial properties of its spa waters. Campi Flegrei, characterized by the extraordinary presence of volcanic phenomena, has charmed artists and writers since ancient times, so much so that Homer and Virgil set some of the events of their epic poems here. Over the centuries the sea has covered parts of the area settled during the height of the Roman Empire. One of the activities that attracts many visitors is underwater archeology which makes it possible to see the ancient buildings and massive marble sculptures now located under water.
Bacoli | Bacoli is a charming fishing village in the Gulf of Pozzuoli. This picturesque town contains on of the most important sanctuaries of ancient times: Antro della Sibilla, entirely dug out of the tuff by the Greeks in the fifth century B.C. During the summer Bacoli enjoys a vibrant cultural life: during this season numerous theatrical and musical performances are held which attract both visitors and Neapolitans.
Baia | Baia is located just a few kilometers from Bacoli and is famous for its majestic Castello Aragonese. This fortress occupies 45,000 square meters and with its massiveness it dominates the entire Gulf of Pozzuoli. Its high impregnable walls now house the Museo Archeologico dei Campi Flegrei with its collection of artifacts taken from one of the country’s largest underwater archeological areas: the first Submerged Archeological Park created in Italy. In the stretch of the Gulf which lies in front of Baia are the underwater ruins of an ancient city, which at the time of the Roman Empire was a famous vacation spot. In the waters of the Mediterranean it is possible to view temples, spas, colonnades and the remains of luxury summer residences.
Miseno | Miseno is a pretty beach resort located a short distance from Bacoli, right in front of the islands of Procida, Vivara and Ischia.
