Campi Flegrei, Naples

(60+ reviews on the web)
Volcano Hot Spring
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.
