  • Extremely interesting, loads to see and the guide we had was so informative and took time to explain everything thing going on. This place doesn't disappoint.  more »
  • I had a great trip here today, I hired an electric bike in Pozzuoli and this was the 2nd spot I wanted to see. It's an amazing experience and it demonstrates what the earth is capable of! In my humble...  more »
  • This is really interesting but I just couldn't take the smell. Made me heave for hours afterwards - be prepared to leg-it!! My teenage son (who clearly has no sense of smell) enjoyed it though  more »

  • It's so interesting to see! I definitely recommend it if you're in the area. Take some comfy shoes and bring a camera. Also be careful if you're touching the steam.
  • An amazing place that I strongly recommend to anyone who wants to visit Naples. The atmosphere is extremely fascinating and the guide we had was really prepared.
  • Worth a visit, for those interested. The area is big and there are explanations in English as well as Italian on the big signs
  • Wasn't quite sure what to expect when visiting this place but definitely glad I did so. The desolate caldera opens up on you quite unexpectedly; its vast size, the lack of life and the smell and sight of potted sulphur vents making it seem very other-worldly - almost as though human beings shouldn't really be there. Couldn't resist taking a closer look at some of the vents but paid for it in the form of some sulphur-stained clothing. Wear something old (or cover up well) would be my advice to those who follow after me!
  • This is the best place to visit on the region! A must see. Real volcano! A lot of steam around and the smell of sulphur.
