  • The solfatara at night is a real bonus. We attended a very pleasant and impressive guided tour between smoke of Joshua and the paths on the pebbles of kaolin which gave almost the idea of walking on the moon. Very friendly and knowledgeable our tour guide, the volcanologist Peppe who knew how to involve us all along the way and did enjoy a delicious hake cooked on the warmth of steaming vents of this impressive and ancient volcanic site. To try (and bring the kids!).

  • Fantastic site, unique in the world, you feel immersed in prehistory. Experience to live and share.

  • I've been at this magnificent volcano with friends a few years ago! Absolutely charming both for the place for the gassing and peculiar smell! Totally recommended

  • There's no doubt that this volcano is active! When visiting this site you'll be exposed to the extreme smell of sulphur (like rotten eggs) and plenty of blazing hot rocks accompanied by steam and an eerie hissing sound. This was a very interesting trip but at 7 euro each and 3 euro for parking it is a pit pricey for the 40 minutes that it takes to see the entire site.
  • Guide spoke very good English and was informative. Okay, there isn't much to do in the actual volcano (white bit) but the camp site looked really nice and the staff were friendly and helpful. This is somewhere I would consider returning to for camping as it seems well located and the grounds were beautiful.
  • Must visit and if you can, prefer sunset! The stream flows are georgeus at that time :)
  • Great camping. Not overcrowded even in high season now in August. Clean sanitation. Nice pool. Allways warm water. Friendly people. Nice pasta menu. Small shop. Stayed 5 days. Would come again. Grazie
  • One of the most amazing things you can find in Naples! A must for tourists and not.
