This option offers a tour through the main locations of the area of the Campi Flegrei, an area of the city of Pozzuoli located just outside the city of Naples, such as the volcanic complex called Solfatara and the excavations sites of Cuma and Bacoli, to then go back to Naples and visit the city.
During this fascinating experience you will literally set foot in an active volcano, the Solfatara fields, a volcanic system that is comprehensive of about forty craters, with the characteristic sulfuric rocks and mud pools, and then move the archeological sites of Cuma and Bacoli, where you can admire the famous “Antro della Sibilla”, the “Anfiteatro Flavio” and the temple of Apollo.
This tour is truly your best choice if you want to see with your own eyes the impact that an active volcano has on the area, and witness the great influence of ancient Greece in the area around Naples.
The Solfatara of Pozzuoli is an active volcanic complex formed almost four thousands years ago, characterized by the exposed pools of boiling hot mud and the gaysers of vapors and sulfuric fumes and it is exactly the fact that they are exposed what helps the pressure underground the area of Naples to be constant.
The Solfatara was extremely important way back in the Roman Empire, infact the Romans believed it to be the Home of “Vulcano”, the blacksmith of the gods, but also because from the Solfatara they extracted the so called “Bianchetto”, a material similar to cement that they used of course for construction
Today the Solfatara represents one of the main points of interests of the area surrounding Naples, attracting thousads of visitors and geologists every year
The Campi Flegrei are a “must see” destination for anyone passionate about history, for they are rife of archeological monuments from both the Roman Empire and the Greek colonies. Some examples worth mentioning are without a doubt the Temple of Apollo, the “Antro della Sibilla” and the “Anfiteatro Flavio”.
The Anfiteatro Flavio of Pozzuoli, not to be confused with the one in Rome better known as the Colosseum, is the third biggest Roman theatre in Italy, after the aforementioned Colosseum and the Anfiteatro of Capua. It was active especially during the Republican era of Rome and its contruction is attributed to the same architects that built the Colosseum.
The “Antro della Sibilla” is a particular place similar to a cave, home of the Sibilla Cumana. The Sibilla was a clairvoyant and an oracle for the Roman army, but since she used to write her predictions on many leaves that she then scattered in the wind, her answers were never completely clear and open to different interpretations.
Finally you can visit the temple of Apollo, partially buried by earthquake caused by the Solfatara itself but still retaining most of his beauty.
The walking tour of Naples is structured around the cornerstones of Neapolitan culture and tradition and it will hinge around its roots, its history, its castles and its kings, the imposing Maschio Angioino which is one of the most important castles of the city, the Castel dell’Ovo, loved by the roman poet Virgilio, the wonderful Plebiscito’s square, the Saint Carlo Theatre, the magnificent Royal Palace and the Umberto I Gallery, and while you walk around you can look through the city alleys and its typical views, with strings of clothes suspended among the buildings.
Naples is also its flavors, the products that have made it famous all around the world, first of all, the creation of the Neapolitan chef Raffaele Esposito: the delicious Pizza, born in the 1780, which will be enjoyed walking in the charming district of via dei tribunali, few steps away from the Duomo of Naples, where the treasure of the patron saint San Gennaro is preserved, and where every year the miracle of the blood liquefaction takes place.
After the pizza, you can’t miss the tipical neapolitan homemade dessert Babbà, while you let yourself be charmed by the streets of Saint Gregorio Armeno, cradle of a very special art, the street of the nativity scene makers.
While you taste the typical street products made in naples such as taralli, crocchè, frittatine you will be amazed by the beautiful piazza del gesù Nuovo, San Domenico, and the Majolica Cloister of Santa Chiara monastery
