  • The Aragonese castle in Bacoli, fraction of Bacoli, was erected in 1495 on a hill overlooking the sea and strategically placed to control the sea lanes to and from Pozzuoli, Cuma and Procida. Its construction was carried out by the Aragonese in the ' 500, the castle was altered at the behest of Viceroy Pedro Alvarez de Toledo who made him take the current star shape. A new renovation was made in ' 700 for damage suffered during the war between Austrians and Bourbons. The castle was used as a military fortress until the unification of Italy but was left in the State. In the thirties of the twentieth century the structure was used as a military orphanage suffering, for obvious adaptations to the new type of usage, profound transformations. It was then used as a prison during World War II. Since 1984 there is a proper archaeological museum Campi Flegrei.

  • February 2016. a promenade towards the castle of baia (Naples). wonderful from the outside and overlooks the sea. intrigued we enter and we find the staff. the biggest surprise what we find inside: an archaeological museum of Greek and Roman remains, vases statues fixings. a well-structured path which makes us feel and live in that period in our history, in the end we get out on the open veranda with a breathtaking sea view. go there with beautiful weather. awed

  • A place not to be missed, the Baia Castle houses the magnificent archaeological museum Campi Flegrei: a multitude of artifacts, statues, inscriptions, a unique arrangement: a session devoted in Pozzuoli, one at Rione Terra, a at cumae, one at Bay and the splendid Villa Romana incorporated in the structures of the castle itself. An exhibition curated and addictive. Evocative paths and breathtaking views. To get there is comfortable taking the Cumana and alight at Lucrino and wait for a bus or a taxi (the distance is short); for the more "free" even hitchhike;) tickets cost incredibly super cheap. Even for Sunday walks. Beware of 13:30 last entry. Better if you call first to get hours and days of operation (Monday closed) 081 523 3797-80070 Bacoli Via Castello, 39, NA

  • great place. Pity not to let go with plastic fridge but only tote bag, having to leave in a place not really protected (at the end of the Jetty). Clean sea, ventilated
