Some of the world's best preserved and crowd-free Roman ruins, a legendary lake tought to be the entrance to the Hades, an underwater Roman city, an active super volcano, sandy beaches and natural thermal springs are the main ingredients for this fun holiday along the Bay of Naples.

Dive into Pozzuoli's Greek-Roman past

Inhabited since the 2nd century BC, Pozzuoli has seen a long, multi-chaptered life that is handsomely assembled in its historical centre, Rione Terra.

The town is also home to a Flavian Amphitheatre, the third largest in Italy and the Roman Macellum, another archaeological treasure, documenting what used to be a thriving ancient city.

Divers will enjoy exploring the underwater Roman city of Baia, sunk by bradyism caused by the underlying volcanic activities. Geologist will be amazed by the Solfatara, a live volcanic crater filled with steaming, bubbling mud and sulfurous gases.

Should you have extra time, Naples' UNESCO historic centre is just a 15-minute train ride

Opened in 2015, Villa Avellino is a renovated 16th-centruy building, boasting luxurious modern fittings while keeping the charming, antique air of the premises.

The loft-style apartments are large, bright and just ideal for parties of 4, or larger families. You can choose between a two-floor or one-floor layout, a private balcony or terrace, and views of either the Gulf of Pozzuoli or inner garden.

Learn geothermal science in one of the many hot springs on the island Ischia

Hop on the hydrofoil for the one hour journey to Ischia where natural thermal springs, pampering spas and a stunning coastline have all played their part in attracting royalty and celebrities to the island of Ischia over the years.

Ischia's volcanic activity has created natural springs such as those at Sorgeto, Nitrodi and Cavascura while The Fumaroles of Sant'Angelo are hot jets of steam that rise from the sand.

The volcano Mt Epomeo is a high point in every sense of the word: take the footpath from the main piazza at Serrara Fontana, through woods of holm oak and chestnut trees, then climb to the peak via a narrow path carved out of the rocks. The ‘Epomeo in Sella’ riding school offers an alternative ascent, via horseback, but however you get there, your prize at the summit is breathtaking views across the Bay of Naples, Vesuvius and the neighbouring islands of Capri, Ponza and Procida.

Don’t miss the Castello Aragonese, built in 1438 by Alfonso of Aragon, and connected to the island by a bridge. Originally a castle, palace and monastery, today there are planted gardens and an olive grove within the medieval gardens and you can still explore around the castle walls, via antique archways and tiny courtyards.

Garden & Villas Resort comprises 8 Mediterranean-style villas set amongst a three acre garden, planted with Mediterranean shrubs, plants and flowers. The sandy beach of San Montano and the town of Lacco Ameno are just a few steps from the resort.
