Campi Flegrei, Naples

4.1
#6 of 8 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.

  • A nice tour of sea, landscapes, history and archaeology beyond all expectations. Don't miss the Baia Castle, the archaeological sites of Cuma and the amphitheatre at Pozzuoli, Bacoli, the Roman city submerged and more with the background of Vesuvius. Courtesy and cheerfulness, to avoid peak summer heat that traffic.

  • Interesting visit, easy to get to on metro line 2. It is amazing to think that this is just one of twenty creators which Mark up a large callers, mostly undersea , scary. Glad we made the effort
  • Wasn't quite sure what to expect when visiting this place but definitely glad I did so. The desolate caldera opens up on you quite unexpectedly; its vast size, the lack of life and the smell and sight of potted sulphur vents making it seem very other-worldly - almost as though human beings shouldn't really be there. Couldn't resist taking a closer look at some of the vents but paid for it in the form of some sulphur-stained clothing. Wear something old (or cover up well) would be my advice to those who follow after me!
  • swimming in lava is a once in a life time opertunity
  • Warning! Stay away from this (super) Volcano. It 's a riskey site!
  • I hope it doesn't erupt
