The cradle of Western Culture


The landscape of the Phlegrean Fields is breathtaking with volcanic lakes and Roman archaeological remains.

Phlegrean Fields (land of fire) was the name given by the Greeks to this volcanic area to the north-west of Naples when they founded Cumae, their first settlement in Southern Italy dating back to the 8th century B. C.

Itinerary

We can star visiting Cuma, where all began. . Cuma is one of the oldest Greek colonies in Southern Italy and birthplace of the western culture. Among the remains are: two temples - one of them with a well-preserved medieval font and the famous Sybil's grotto, which was a place of myth, oracles and religion.
A nice walk will be visiting the Archeological Park of Baia: a huge area with ruins belonging to a thermal complex from the 1st century B. C, one of the wealthiest Villas where the affluent Romans used to spend their holidays. It also offers monumental thermal baths, a theatre and the remains of a Roman swimming-pool and dining- rooms.
If you really like archeology, the Archaeological Museum of Baia is not to be missed: (closed on Mondays) housed in a XV century fortress, in two halls there are the reconstructions of the marble decoration of sites now standing underwater due to the effect of bradyseism. There is also a rich exhibition of findings recovered from all around the Phlegrean area.

A Recent Review of this tour

Valentina set up a driver to pick us up at the port. He was a safe driver and took us to meet her at the volcanic site. We had a wonderful tour throughout the fields and saw many interesting places and ruins. Valentina is full of information and knowledgeable about the sites we visited. The amphitheater was amazing! We stopped for lunch with a beautiful view of the lake. We ended the tour with a coffee and the best gelato ever! Thanks for a great day visiting so many places we never even know existed!
