Phlegraean Fields tours

Discover the Phlegraean Fields thanks to the guided tours of Archeology in Napoli; you will be guided by a professional archaeologist who will lead you among the places of myth, through the history of a land in which the deepest roots of Western cicilization lie, where history, landscape and myth blend together, where every product, every glimpse, every stone tell of a great past, of coexistence with a nature as generous as it is risky, of warriors, emperors, rich aristocrats, poets, writers, entrepreneurs, industrious artisans, loves, crimes and great banquets.

Campi Flegrei - Places of Myth

Visiting the Campi Flegrei (Phlegraean  Fields) means traveling into the past, a unique experience in a place that owns, concentrated in an area of a few square kilometers (the entire Phlegraean area has an area of 7,350 acres with a maximum diameter of 17 km), 25 archaeological sites, evidence of the most prestigious in the history of all time, but also a geological and marine environment of inestimable value.

The great caldera, formed following two major eruptions that took place 39000 and 15000 years ago, shows over twenty craters, originating from explosive eruptions and is characterized by continuous secondary volcanic phenomena such as solfataras, bradyseism and thermal springs.

It is one of the most important areas of active volcanism in the world; the Greek name Flegraion pedion (burning plain), referred to by Strabo in the Geography, suggests how the ancients knew the volcanic phenomena of the area.

The violence of nature inspired fantastic images and mysterious creatures such as the Sibyl, the Cimmerians and the Giants imprisoned in the bowels of the earth where the gods of Olympus had hunted them, characterizing this land of extraordinary wealth, such as the access to an underground and infernal world that transshipments pouring its waters and its products on the surface and generating the resources that have attracted man to these places so much that he coexists with volcanoes

Guided tours in Pozzuoli

Pozzuoli, the main port of Rome in the early centuries of the empire, was famous among the ancients as pusilla Roma (little Rome), since, despite its small size, it appeared as a grandiose city, teeming with people from all over the Mediterranean. Two amphitheaters , the thermal complex known as the Temple of Neptune , the Macellum (temple of Serapis), the stadium , are some of the monumental remains of the city that emerge imposingly in the modern urban texture.

Guided tours of Baia

Baiae was the place chosen by the Roman aristocrats for the " holiday ", popular among the most eminent personalities and preferred by the emperors for the healthiness of the climate and for the therapeutic properties of its thermal springs. The volcanic nature of the area which, thanks to the exploitation of thermal resources, made Baia immortal, marked its end due to bradyseism.

The 'maritime' colony of Liternum was founded, together with Volturnum and Puteoli, in 194 BC: ad Literni ostium, on the left bank of the Literna palus, today's Lago Patria , which in ancient times constituted the outlet to the sea of ​​the Clanis. 

The city is known to the sources for having hosted the great winner of Zama, Scipio the African who retired to private life in a fundus with an adjoining villa, described by Seneca who elevates it to a model of sobriety. The hero was then buried here, in 183 BC, inside a mausoleum dominated by a statue torn up during a storm.
