    Mythological cave that brings visitors back to a few millennia. Truly unique experience in the passage that transmits strong emotions. To photograph!

    I like legendary sites, but this long, straight passageway to a room at the end is hardly breathtaking. You can get in, and you can walk it to the end. It is a small part of the overall site, which is...  more »

    We visited the archaeological site of Cuma with high expectations. We knew about the Sibyl's Cave as one of the most important sacred places of antiquity and in our imagination the Cumaean Sibyl was a legendary figure, intent on prophesy for pilgrims on their way to the shrine. Maybe the expectations are too high have caused our disappointment. We are facing a more than 130 metres long tunnel excavated in the Tuff where you can see a play of light and shade and lateral branches. The structure, however, is in a State of disrepair, fenced and in its final part overrun with wasps. The rest of the area is of special emotions: just the remains of the Temple of Apollo and Jupiter. The lower city then is inaccessible, because perhaps more excavation. We need an intervention to restore lustre to this important archaeological site.

  • Antro della Sibilla.. un posto da favola! An Old place... that seems to be a Dream!
  • Very good food and really nice staff
  • i went early , no one around the safety barriers were closed, I pushed them aside and walked then to the dark gloomy end of the cave.The further i got the more panicky I felt , whether it was the ancient spirit of the Sybil that you can physically feel as you trespass , or the marks and carvings of past predictions on the cavern walls .I got to the end and quickly left ,elated but spooked.
  • Spectacular place. Apollo's temple, Temple of Zeus overlooking the seafront from Fernando in Licola and the island of Ischia in the background. Construction of thousands of years between Greek and Roman depurpati by zero maintenance.

  • Fascinating, mysterious, well organized. A living surely at least once in their lifetime. It's exciting to walk into the center of the cavern going from bright moments in dark moments. Historically it has been confirmed that it was not the Sibyl's Cave, but it's worth getting excited.
