Lago d'Averno, Pozzuoli

4.4
#2 of 12 in Parks in Pozzuoli
Experience a tranquil outing to Lago d'Averno, a volcanic crater lake steeped in legend and history. According to Roman mythology, the body of water was actually the entrance to the underworld, Hades. After the construction of a canal connecting it to the sea in 37 BCE, it served as a naval base for Roman generals, housing many ships. Today the peaceful area makes a perfect setting for walking, jogging, biking, and picnicking among the groves of trees and old vineyards. Visit the remains of the Temple of Apollo that line the shore and see the four arches that still remain. Waterfowl, turtles, and other wildlife frequent the area.
