In the middle of Lake Fusaro stands the Real Casino di Caccia, which was designed by the Vanvitelli brothers and commissioned by the Bourbon family, at the time in charge of Naples and the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.

Phlegraean Fields: Cuma Baia and Pozzuoli private excursion

4. Phlegraean Fields: Cuma Baia and Pozzuoli private excursion

Escape the hustle and bustle of Naples on a full-day tour of the Phlegraean Fields, the volcanic landscape of Campania surrounding the metropolis. Following a pick-up from your pre-arranged location in Naples, travel to the regional park, also known as the Campi Flegrei. The fascinating area owes its varied landscape to the numerous, now extinct and dormant volcanos, and the bradyseismic phenomena most prevalent in the Macellum of Pozzuoli. Tour this former market of the Roman colony of Puteoli, excavated in the 18th century after the discovery of a statue of Serapis. See the surviving columns of the macellum, studded with mollusc holes. Visit the Acropolis of Cuma at the site of the ruined city of Cumae on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Founded by Euboean Greeks, the most famous monument here is the Sybil cave sanctuary. Go to the former Roman seaside resort of Baiae to see the Museum of the Phlegrean Fields in the former Aragonese fortress. Much of the site is underwater, but above ground you will see the remains of temples to Venus, Diana, and Mercury. Other highlights include the enormous Roman cistern of the Piscina Mirabilis at Miseno, known in ancient times as Misenum, when it was home to the largest base of the Roman navy. Marvel at the volcanic lakes of D'Averno, Fusaro, and Miseno, before your return transfer to Naples.

What people are saying about Bacoli

The tour was really great and very exciting. The two guides were very nice and helpful. For us, the only non-Italian speaking participants, everything was translated into English. You got a lot of exciting information. Due to a traffic jam on the way there, we didn't make it to the meeting point in time. But since we announced this by email, there was a special wait for us and one of the guides even ran towards us and reported this by phone. That was really great! All in all, I can only recommend the tour.

I highly recommend this experience in Bacoli, Naples. We had the best time during our excursion with Alessandra, Andrea and Andrea. They are very passionate about their territory and the work they do. The archeological site under water is really cool to see and throughout the trip they were able to answer any question we had.

Wonderful new adventure, I look forward to taking diving classes to see it up close. Biai is a beautiful historic town with much to offer. The guides and hospitality were exceptional, will visit again. Sincerely, Sean W.
