Naples: Phlegraean Fields Full-Day Private Tour

2. Naples: Phlegraean Fields Full-Day Private Tour

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.

On shore you will find the transparent canoes ready for your excursion and a professional guide will give you a brief introduction to the history and archaeology of the Park before you begin your sail.

At the end of the excursion you will have some free time to sail wherever you wish.

... a really impressive excursion with professional support

Exploring Roman villas under the sea with a glass-bottom canoe - that was a real experience! After we couldn't find the right diving school at the beginning, we got great support from Get Your Guide, so that we could finally enjoy the excursion with a little delay. Many thanks to the team!

I recommend, Roberta our guide was great, she made us discover the corners of Pozzuoli
