  • The archaeological site of Cuma is of impressive beauty, millennia of history etched on the walls are close at hand and could be visited by many more people if you only create the suitable conditions to get there more easily! We start from the beginning; I visited the complex in one of the Museum's Sundays, expecting a lot of people and instead I think there were more than a hundred, the outside of the complex is distressing and not well maintained, all from the impression of neglect and it did not feel really sure you know ... The entrance for that Sunday was free and was made available a guide who explained really well the story around the archaeological site, the visit also included l Sibyl's Cave. At the end seems to be straight out of a wonderful journey through time, but suddenly come back to reality from the degradation of outside, among other things that day had broken the Windows of 5 machines (including mine) to steal belongings and I wonder how it is possible that before a site of equal importance as Pompeii, there are no adequate controls?? Needless to say that it has done little or nothing for this discomfort they experienced other people like me, but my advice remains the same visit and maybe find a safe parking for cars!

  • If you like mythical places surrounded by mystery and described in more famous books studied in schools, the cave of the Cumaean Sibyl is not to be missed. There is not much to see except the passage, I personally I went just for that. Staff entrance and affable.

  • The site pre-dates Roman rule, and has some interesting ruins of temples here and there. Very picturesque and nice view of the sea from up high. The Cave of the Sibyl alone is not worth the trip, but ...  more »

  • Astonishing, Sibilla cave and temples in front of the sea
  • What more can you ask for? Its a well preserved active archaeological ancient city with great views for four euros and no crowds. Don't pass this up.
  • Peaceful sounds of ocean waves in the background as you explore an ancient site revered by the Romans and the Greek s before them
  • Quiet and atmospheric. Lovely.
  • Beautiful, quiet site. Extremely important historically.
