Let's go to discover Phlegraean fields. The suggestion of a land of incomparable beauty witness of an ancient and glorious civilization lost in myth. Reality and imagination, nature and poetry a blend of the sacred and profane, between land and sea, volcanic lakes, craters, fumaroles, hot springs, caves, woodlands and luxurious vegetation phlegraean fields have inspired poets and writers since antiquity from Homer to Virgil, Horace, Dante, Petrarch and Boccaccio. An extraordinary heritage of humanity not to be missed.

Pick-up at the hotel at approx. 8:15am and transfer to Solfatara in Pozzuoli, a perfect example of Volcanism of the area. The crater provides an exhibition of volcanic columns of smoke and boiling mud with a strong smell of sulphur. Go on to Flavio’s Amphitheatre, the most important record of Puteoli during the Imperial Rome. The attraction of the arena is represented by the extraordinary organisation of the underground network of tunnels. 
After that, there will be a brief stop at Serapi, a temple located in the centre of Pozzuoli and then we will pass through Arco felice, the majestic entrance to the ancient city. Drive to the Acropolis of Cumae with Sibyl’s cave and its temples. Brief stop at d'Averno lake viewpoint for pictures.
