  • Cuma is the first Greek settlement of Peninsular Italy. Fall in 412 BC under the Samnites, regains its splendor during the Roman rule. Therefore, the story is distributed across multiple layers. The visit to the Archaeological Park starts from Sibyl's Cave, which creates an atmosphere of mystery, if you think of the oracles get in those decades. The collapse of time lets see the Roman crypt, part of a tunnel dug between the Acropolis and the Harbour, with defensive functions. The Park has, also, the ruins of two temples dedicated to Zeus and Apollo.

  • Cuma is the first Greek colony in the West (along with Pythecusa) and well worth the trip. You walk into a mythological world where is intriguing the Sibyl's Cave, where you can fantasize about how they had to be the Greek temples of Apollo and Jupiter on the Acropolis (now remain the ruins), the Roman crypt, the Roman civilization and then medieval. The wooded nature surrounds you while you're busy with expansive vistas of the coast, the island of Ischia, Procida, Miseno, capes and Lakes of the phlegraean fields.

  • We stumble upon this site by accident, however, it was extremely nice to visit. There are not many information points in english, but I was able to quickly find information to make the visit informative. Parking was limited, and we had to park down the road from the entrance. There are some really neat sights, and it provide a lot of information on the history in the Naples area.
  • A spectacular place with a very interesting history well worth a visit. The only thing keeping my from giving five stars is that a few of the information signs are a bit difficult to read due to weathering. The place is also a bit difficult to reach with public transport at least during the winter months, but one can walk from the train station in Fusaro.
  • Beautiful vista's, hiking trails, and historical ruins!
  • Cool to see ruins in this location. The Greeks knew how to pick locations! There's not a lot there, so it doesn't take long to see.
  • Wonderful site. Pleasant with much lighter crowds. Helps if you read up before go but there are very knowledgeable guides onsite.
