    Pozzouli is a gem of a place and the Rione Terra is the brightest gem we encountered. We booked a tour in English for the two of us, which was easily done on their web site, and received confirmation the next day.
    We really didn’t know much about the site other than it was an “underground tour” which sounded interesting, but we discovered there was much more to it.
    The location of the site is breathtaking. It is located on a height right on the shore overlooking the rest of the city. It was the site of a Roman settlement that Included a temple and villas. Overtime the area was built over and a modern city arose, yet the ruins lay underneath revealed in the 1980s when the site was evacuated due to seismic activity. What you will see is a vast area of excavated Roman ruins lying underneath the refurbished structures above.
    Our guide, Dominico, spoke good English and gave us an interesting tour. Because so few people outside of Italy seem to know about this place we had an impromptu private tour for a grand total of 10 Euros!
    Pozzouli is only a 30 minute train ride north of Naples from Montesano station on the Cuma train. It’s a nice place to stay, relaxed, insanely scenic, and much cheaper than Naples or areas south of Naples. And the people there are so very nice, kind and accepting of tourists.

    The Flavian Amphitheater is the 3rd largest amphitheater in Italy! It could accommodate 40,000 spectators!
    Built in bricks and stones, it has kept its enclosures, its entrances and, above all, the underground passages (wings, housing for machinery) practically intact !!! We learnt that, in 305 AD, seven Christians were condemned to be torn to pieces by wild beasts in the arena.

    Easy walk around the lake. Nice lakeside restaurant but on Sundays book or go early otherwise you will not get in!

    Baia was a Roman seaside samll town, which was appreciated by aristocrats of the Naples area for its spa establishment
    In the Archaeological Park of Baia, we saw the remains of patrician residences and thermal establishments, which were built in the 2nd century. Before JC. We have learned that the phenomena of bradyseism resulted in slow engulfing of piers, villas and buildings between the 3rd and 5th centuries after JC.
    We visited discovered this archaeological complex, which is divided into 5 sectors: the Complexe des Terrasses or the Ambulatio, the Thermes de Mercure (which is a large thermal room with a domed roof), the Lower Thermes, the Thermes de Sosandre and the Baths of Venus.
    It was an interesting visit!
    We were amazed to see a fig tree growing upside down, from the vault of a Roman remains. It was the highlight of the visit!!!

    We got here by bus from Fusaro station. Took a while to find the bus stop, and the tobacconist who was selling tickets could not tell us when the bus would be running. Luckily we did not have to wait long, but the bus has no number or destination at the front, so you just have to stick your hand out when something looking like a little bus comes along. There is an entrance gate into Cumae right next to the bus stop, but this is closed as is the one a bit further up the hill, but just keep going and you finally come to the entrance. We loved the site, especially Sybilla's cave, but it is worth climbing to the very top to the Temple of Jupiter. Stunning views along the coast as you walk around. Next to the bus stop there is a lovely little bar whose owner will alert you when the bus is coming.

    Simply stunning underground archeology. The history of this area is just mind blowing. The cathedral is one of the wonders of the world.

    Impressive site, originally thought to be a temple, but now confirmed as a market-place ..... or is it the other way round? ;-) You can see all there is to see from the street, so it's really not worth paying the extra 4 euros to actually go in.

    The cave is not the most interesting part of the site and it probably was not the site of the Sibyl's cave. However, it is one of a number of interesting structures - including tunnels - that were built so long ago and are unlike others of their time. What was their true use?

    We would not have found this 2000 year old testament to Roman engineering without our guide, Vincenzo. It is a visible reminder that their trademark of empire were their roads.

    Not very exciting ruins and probably not a temple. More likely a very large municipal baths. There are better sites to see but if you are passing it will only 10 minutes or so

    Visible from the road which is handy as it is very seldom open to the public. You need a good guide book as there is no information in English and it is a unique site when contrasted with the Flavian amphitheatre
