We saw this as part of a tour. There is not a front counter to buy tickets. Our guide had pre-set up a time to meet with the owner to get the keys, so i am not sure how this would work otherwise.
Basically this is the cistern at the end of a huge huge roman aqueduct who's primary purpose was to bring water to the military. You get to go into the empty cistern & see how massive iy is & the technology used to build it.

The Greeks utilized this site as did the Romans, as did the Aragonese who constructed this undaunted fortress. You pass through Caesar's garden across a drawbridge, all the way up to the battlements, all the time being treated to spectacular views of the ancient and current sites of Inhabitation on the bay. There is a spectacular museum housing a vast collection including relics of Greek Cumae, which I will review separately. Push yourself and go all the way to the roof. Take photos that will echo for a lifetime.

This is a sympathetically restored Greco/Roman archaeological find on a number of levels under the Rione Terra district of Pozuoli which may never have been discovered were it not for the bradissismo that occurred in the 1970's. This site has the potential to compliment the scavi at Pompeii and Ercolano but is currently in it's embryonic stages with further excavations still taking place. It lacks marketing expertise and has only Italian speaking guides and no explanatory signs in other languages currently which is unfortunate as Pozuoli has recently begun to welcome cruise ships into the port. However this is still a big attraction not to be missed and the crowning glory is the Duomo which is now a functioning church once more and uses the best of the restored material alongside a modern glass fronted profile with a modern interior giving an overall stunning impression.

No Tourists, no drunks, just peace. A fantastic place to live. I have many friends in Torregaveta and love the place. A small sandy beach and a 300 meters ponti that local people and people from far afield fish for thier lunch. There is a lovely bar owned by a friend which is cheap and very clean. But unfortunately, this place is only known to Italians. Though being bias, I wouldn't want it opened up to tourist, I think it would be spoilt. I have just left there and long to return providing my wife is given the all clear to travel again. Woinderful place and wonderful people. Torregaveta has its own station to Naples and a bus service to Monte di Procida and Naples. Lots of things to see around the area.

We stayed in the area for a week. Couldn't get enough. Museum is well managed., the gallery should have something to capture everyone's interest. The castle just makes the visit so much more authentic.

After being destroyed in the 1960s, and with the surrounding area being evacuated in 1970, this Cathedral re opened in May after years of work. It is now a spectacular mix of the old Baroque and ultra modern glass, with the Roman columns of the original Temple of Jupiter now exposed. The area of Terra which sits above the port is still being slowly being rebuilt but there are fantastic views over the Bay. And everywhere you can glimpse roman brickwork and cellars. Well worth an hour but note that The church only opens for services on Saturday and Sunday 1000-1300 and 1700-2000.

Casina Vanvitelliana is a hunting lodge built in 1782 by Carlo Vanvitelli commissioned by King Ferdinand IV of Bourbon.
We visited this in the morning,when the park was fairly empty apart from the obligatory women having their photos taken by photographers.The building looks interesting sat in the lake linked by an arched bridge.It is only open at weekends and costs €3 to enter.I don't think there is much inside unless you are interested in architecture,but your €3 should go towards the maintenance of the area.We were fortunate to meet the gate keeper who explained that it was a Bourbon hunting lodge.He was kind and helpful.
I would classify this as a peaceful retreat especially if you are travelling here by car.Nice bar to have a drink afterwards.

I've been here a couple of weeks ago, and I've enjoyed it a lot.
The wine and cocktails list is very nice too,but what make the difference is the staff!!! The location then is unique!!!
I definitely raccomand to stop here If you are visiting Pozzuoli and the villages near by ( Bacoli , Baia , Miseno)

The Romans already knew the Solfatara since Imperial times. Strabone (66 B.C. -24 A.C.) gives the most ancient written testimony coming to us in his “Strabonis geographica”, indicating it with the name “Forum Vulcani”, dwelling of the god Volcano, entrance to Hades. The Solfatara opens up officially to visitors in the year 1900, although it was since time immemorial destination for its renown volcanic phenomena, for the therapeutic properties of the sulfurous waters and for the hot saunas; it was in fact included among the forty most famous thermae of the Phlegreaen Fields since the Middle Ages.
We visited this very lively volcano crater a couple of days before the tragic deaths of a young boy and his parents - in fact we walked very close to the spot where the tragedy occurred.
I am almost reluctant to review the attraction as clearly it is not such a safe place to visit. I was encouraged to pick up a large boulder and drop it on the surface to experience the rather spooky echo - the crust on top of the magma chamber is fairly thin.
Fascinating to be able to get up close to volcanic activity - I doubt the 'free roaming' aspect that existed when I was there is no longer so
