Campi Flegrei, a spectacle of nature and culture
Located west of Naples, the Phlegraean Fields are an undiscovered area of volcanic origin that includes the towns of Pozzuoli, Bacoli and Monte di Procida, among others.
The Crater of Mount New
The Phlegraean Fields are increasingly visited by tourists fascinated by the alternation of wonderful landscapes and places rich in history and culture. Here, in fact, one can find splendid nature reserves, museums, lakes and archaeological parks.
To visit the Phlegraean Fields is to stand open-mouthed in front of a glimpse of the sea and at the same time be enraptured by the beauty of the remains of an ancient villa or spa building.
Choosing an organized tour is definitely the best way to be able to appreciate all that this magical area of Campania has to offer.
Many opt to leave from Naples, and thanks to a private transfer you can be conveniently picked up in front of your hotel or B&B and begin a fantastic adventure to discover the Campi Flegrei.
The Archaeological Complex of Baia, the baths of the ancient Romans
Among the first places to see we should definitely mention the Archaeological Complex of Baia, which is located in the hamlet of the same name in Bacoli. The scenic impact of the thermal area and the villas of the Roman patricians, who chose these lands as their vacation spot, is truly incredible.

Terraces, frescoes, staircases, mosaics...priceless treasures enclosed in this exceptional Archaeological Park that deserve to be seen at least once.
Getting a licensed tour guide to accompany you is undoubtedly the right choice to fully discover the history of the Archaeological Complex of Baia, but also, for example, the Flavian Amphitheater in Pozzuoli.
In fact, during a tour of the Phlegraean Fields, a visit to one of the largest amphitheaters ever built by the Romans cannot be missed. The basement and cavea, which can be visited by tourists, give an idea of the majesty of this building.
The Macellum, the Temple of Serapis
Also in Pozzuoli is the Macellum, also known as the Temple of Serapis. This is a world-renowned monument and a valuable testimony to the phenomenon of bradyseism (a volcanic phenomenon, typical of the Phlegraean Fields area, which consists of the lowering and raising of the ground level). On the marble columns of the Temple of Serapis are the marks left by the waters: holes made by the dates of the sea, the lithodomes.

A self-respecting tour of the Phlegraean Fields also passes through the port of Pozzuoli, but it is good to remember that it takes at least 5 hours to visit all these places.
If you wish, you can also choose longer tours, perhaps a full day, in order to discover other magical places such as Lake D'Averno, formed in one of the craters in the Pozzuoli area, or the splendid Archaeological Excavations of Cumae with the famous Sybil's Cave and the remains of the Temple of Jupiter.
