Somewhere educational for the kids? Pozzuoli in the Bay of Naples

Discover the archaeological gem south of Pozzuoli, one of the first major tourist resort ever, built to attract the Romans patricians who came here for the thermal springs and breathtaking panorama. Among cliffs, temples and ancient statues, just a 20-minute metro ride from Naples, yet surprisingly slow.

For the ancient Romans, this region was a combination of Hades and Olympus. Here myth and science, man and nature, horror and pleasure were confused, among the terrible prophecies of the Sibyl Cumana, the lake of Averno that brought in the realm of the dead, the volcanic phenomena that landed and attracted the men of science of that time, but also the thermal waters and the fumaroles, the mildness of the climate and the clear waters of the sea.

Today the activities on offer range from archaeological diving, island hopping, thermal and visiting world-class Roman ruins to wine tasting followed by a picnic around Lake Averno.
