Water Body
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.

  • I was there on a Sunday of November to visit the place. Is beautiful and can take long walks around the Lake. I remember when I was there it was almost spring day but it looked great. In addition to Lake Lucrino to Avernus, or visit our d are neighbors. To reach the place you have to take the cumana direction Torregaveta Montesanto from Naples station and stop at Lucrino. Tickets cost one euro and fifty. You'll spend a day there. How to eat there at Lucrino there are seafood restaurants. Visit Lake.
