Download the Campi Flegrei map with the tour route here: https://bit.ly/3N0RMTL

Departure/Arrival – The tour departs and arrives at the Mini Hotel car park located in via San Gennaro Agnano, 66 Pozzuoli (NA). It is not necessary to reach the starting point, the tour can be started from any of the stops listed below.

Stop 1 – Solfatara

Solfatara Volcano

One of the souls of Pozzuoli, this volcano is very famous because of its activities, such as gas emissions or boiling mud. Vegetation does not grow near the bottom of the volcano and this greatly impressed the Romans who called the site ‘the Square of the god Vulcan’ (Forum Vulcani) associating the place with Vulcan, god of blacksmiths and fire. The famous St. Gennaro and other saints were martyred in the volcano in the year 304. The Crater Park is currently closed to the public, but if you walk up the street that runs alongside the entrance (via Coste d’Agnano), you will reach a point on the road from where you can observe the marvellous and evocative crater of the Solfatara from above.

Sanctuary of St. Gennaro

This church commemorates the martyrdom of S. Gennaro and six other saints (including S. Procolo, patron saint of Pozzuoli) that occurred during the year 304 inside the Solfatara volcano. The church houses various works of art such as a marble bust depicting St. Gennaro from the Middle Ages and the Pietra di San Gennaro (St. Gennaro Stone), a marble decoration from the 6th century A.D. on which, according to tradition, the saint was beheaded. In fact, it is a popular belief that the Stone emits blood on the feast of St. Gennaro.
Visit to the Sanctuary of St. Gennaro: the Sanctuary is a church regularly open for religious services, so it is advisable not to visit it during celebrations. Usually on holidays it is also open in the morning, on weekdays it is open from 17.00 for the 18.00 celebrations.

Cuma was the oldest colony and city of the Greeks founded in the west during the Vlll century B.C. and the Hellenic population brought there the use of the alphabet and the cult of the god Apollo officiated by the Sibyl, a priestess believed to be able to predict the future (oraculum). Cuma lived until the Middle Ages and in the upper part of the ancient city (acropolis) it is possible to visit the remains of three temples, fortifications and the mysterious cavity carved into the volcanic rock (tufa) known as the ‘Antro della Sibilla’.

Stop 5 – Casina Vanvitelliana

Casina Vanvitelliana of Fusaro

The residence of the Kings of Naples built in 1772 by architect Carlo Vanvitelli, the Casina stands on a natural islet in Lake Fusaro where King Ferdinand IV loved to amuse himself by hunting waterfowl. The Casina is a popular location for concerts and events. Currently, the Casina is under renovation and can only be visited externally, while the Bourbon park can be visited in its entirety.

Cumana railway point of interest: in the Fusaro area, where we are located, there is a nearby station of the Cumana Line leading in the direction of Torregaveta (a seaside area and useful for reaching Monte di Procida) or in the direction of Pozzuoli/Naples.

Stop 6 – Belvedere Monte di Procida

Belvedere Monte di Procida

Monte di Procida, the Terrace of the Phlegraean Fields, boasts a great seafaring tradition and is still a fishing town. The centre rises on a sheer cliff overlooking the sea and almost the entire coastline faces the Procida Channel, the narrow arm of sea that divides the island of Procida from the coast of Monte. Everything in Monte di Procida smells of the sea, every tradition reconnects with it (particularly during the ‘Sagra del Mare Flegreo’) despite the fact that the hamlet of Cappella, located on the plains, is very much tied to the cultivation of vines. In the centre, the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption is worth a visit, while on the coast it is worth a stroll to the Marina di Acquamorta, the waterfront and landing place that also serves as a public square for the social life of the people of Montese. Enchanting, to say the least, is the Stupor Mundi belvedere from which a good part of the Campi Flegrei can be observed.

Marina di Acquamorta

The landing place of Monte di Procida provides a link, by sea, with the island of Procida, but it is also an ideal place for a stroll on the jetties or along the small beach. In addition, the local bars are ideal for an aperitif or to taste the ‘Iingua’ sweet filled with lemon cream typical of Procida and Monte di Procida

Food: there are many bars along the Via Panoramica, some of which are renowned for the preparation of ‘cheesestecca’, one of the area’s typical dishes.

From this point of interest, it is possible to reach the shuttle bus from Monte di Procida to Acqua Morta, a pleasant place for a stroll and a boarding point for Procida.

Stop 7 Miseno

Miseno

Home to the classis Misenensis, Miseno is today one of the most beautiful beaches on the Phlegrean coastline, full of equipped lidos and bars. There are also numerous archaeological remains testifying to the glorious past such as the ‘Peschiere di Lucullo’, the ‘Grotta Dragonara’, the Sacello degli Augustali and the Roman Theatre of Miseno.

Peschiere di Lucullo

Along the wall of the mountain overlooking the beach of Miseno, adjacent to the Dragonara Cave, there are cavities dug into the tufa rock that go by the name of Peschiere di Lucullo; a series of rooms carved out of the rock, with more or less homogenous characteristics, which in the past were part of an ancient patrician villa, presumably belonging to Lucius Licinius Lucullus, a politician of the Republican age who was consul in 74 BC. These caves are partly on land and partly in the sea, but all are part of a single complex used for hydraulic functions and fish farming.

Dragonara Cave

This is a Roman cistern built in the Imperial age, excavated in the tufa wall of the promontory facing Procida. The structure has a quadrangular base, divided into five naves by three rows of twelve pillars also made of tufa, with a wall lining in opus reticulatum and a cocciopesto cladding; the white plaster that connotes the space as a patch of light stands out. The structure has a barrel-vaulted roof.

Sacellum of the Augustals

Discovered as a result of private building work dating from 1967, the famous Miseno complex is a building dating from the Julio-Claudian period dedicated to the cult of the Emperor Augustus and the seat of the local College of Augustals. Today partially submerged by the waters of an aquifer, the Sacellum is divided into three main rooms that were partially excavated in the tuff. The main one is the central one, elevated above the others. The cell is rectangular, while the back wall houses an apse excavated in the tuff. The altar was located outside and was accessed via a wide marble staircase. Many inscriptions and some important marble statues have been found depicting famous Roman emperors, such as Vespasian and his son Titus, not to mention the important bronze equestrian statue of Domitian Nerva, all of which are now kept at the Castle of Baia and the Campi Flegrei Archaeological Museum.

All these archaeological sites, erroneously defined as minor, make up a 2-hour walking tour called “Discovering Ancient Misenum”. A minimum number of people is required to take the tour with a qualified guide who will help you imagine the splendours of this glorious past; therefore, booking is essential. Reservations can be made by contacting the Campi Flegrei Active call centre 081 090 01 80

Miseno is not only archaeology and beaches but also scenic trekking with the route leading to the Sanctuary of the Birds:

Trekking to the ‘Sanctuary of the Birds’ Monte Miseno:

Mount Miseno, a promontory from which the lighthouse of Capo Miseno rises, opens onto two coastlines, one sandy overlooking Ischia and Procida, the other tuffaceous looking into the Gulf of Pozzuoli and onto Vesuvius.

A very panoramic trekking route, made up of the typical colours and scents of the Mediterranean maquis, which are lost in a breathtaking panorama.

The ancient Puteoli of the Romans was perhaps founded by the Greeks under the name ‘Dicearchia’, or the city of good government. In Roman times Pozzuoli was one of the most populous cities of the empire and for more than three centuries it was the main port of the Mediterranean, a place of trade and cultural exchange between all the peoples of Mare Nostrum. In the Middle Ages it was an important centre, a holiday resort for the Kings of Naples, and today it is the most populous city in the area. The many Roman ruins bear witness to the millennial history of the city where Sofia Villani Scicolone, most famous as Sophia Loren, was also born!

Macellum (cd.Temple of Serapis)

The huge Roman building is actually the Macellum, the food market of ancient Puteoli. In the 18th century it was considered a temple due to the discovery of a statue of the oriental god Serapis. The building is one of the symbols of the city and one of the most interesting testimonies to the phenomenon of bradyseism.
