Campi Flegrei, Naples

4.1
#6 of 7 in Nature in Naples
A large volcanic area just west of Naples, Campi Flegrei include 24 craters and volcanic edifices. According to Greek mythology, this multi-crater caldera once provided a home for Hephaestus, the god of fire. Though currently dormant, the "supervolcano" probably holds enough eruptive power to devastate not only the surrounding area, but also most of the planet. For the moment, though, the massive volcano shows no sign of imminent eruption and remains part of a protected regional park. Visit this potentially deadly threat at Europe's doorstep to observe evidence of volcanic activity occurring deep below the surface, including effusive gas manifestations and small tremors.

  • The Solfatara is a small crater in operation, with a few scattered fumaroles. It is interesting only if you have never seen this type of event elsewhere. However this will delight your children: smells of rotten, fumaroles, seething eggs and a whitish Earth resembling a salt desert. the entry is in my view too expensive (8 euros) and in the adjacent campsite parking costs 3 euros. When the town of Pozzuoli, you can pass your turn without regrets.

Where to stay in Naples

Naples' lodging options include everything from turn-of-the-century historical mansions to hip boutique hotels. For a five-star experience in the heart of town, book a centrally located luxury hotel. Less expensive but just as comfortable, traditional inns just outside the central area offer peaceful comfort, private parking, and private outdoor space ideal for quiet dinners and small parties. If you are looking for a less urban experience and prefer to stay in a leafy neighborhood, consider the city's residential suburbs.
