We travelled here from Napoli just to discover after walking 1.5km from the station to the site that it was CLOSED for renovations. Don't understand why they could put that information at the station. It was a tough walk in blistering temperatures, so although the...More

We walked up to the site and just keep walking up the hill to get a great view of this crater with sulphur steam smoking out of it. You can smell it! Hopefully they will re-open it soon. 3 people were killed here in 2017...More

Due to the sad death of 3 people this site is not signposted. It is neglectedif you do manage to find it. Think the locals don't know what to do next with the site.

We had a great time here. We were basically the only ones out there. Got some cool youtube videos of the hot gases coming from the ground. They had a little gift shop at the end of the hike.

This is something different from all of those museums and archeological sites. Be aware of the strong volcanic smell, this place is packed with sulfur. You can see it and you can smell it too. Go and check it out!

This volcano is amazing, showing how powerful the nature is. Steam and fumes rise from the ground and hot, acidic mud areas have claimed lives of wanderers recently. Becareful with your steps and enjoy.

No, I did not think it was dangerous. Anything that could be dangerous is fenced off and if you stay on the designated trails, all will be well. We loved it there!
