The sulfur smell comes out of the ground with the smoke, and if you think Yellowstone Park is bad, you haven't seen or smelled anything yet. It was incredible to go into this active volcano, a monster caldera like the one in Yellowstone or Indonesia, that has been used as sulfur bathes going back to the Romans. I couldn't imagine...

This place is a bit off the beaten track although you can smell it as you approach ... it's the caldera of a volcano which last erupted centuries ago, although it is still spitting and popping. Go here and walk on what sounds like the hollow surface above a volcanic cauldron. The Romans called this place the Entrance to Hades... More

The Roman poet Vergil (Virgil) thought he had found the entrance to Hell. One agrees, as the sotafatarra is hot to walk on and sulfur gas escapes into the air. Nearby is the Flavian amphitheater and a museum. Don't miss the Temple of the Serapede (and catch lunch by the sea).

like: ground is warm to touch, sulfur craters, fumes coming out of the ground, smells like... if you can go there. it's a very short in and out so even if you have an hour to spare. dislike: they should charge less.

I visited Campi Flegrei because I wanted to write about this setting in two of the three books of my Trilogy about Hermes. You'll see what my visualisation of the place over 3,000 years ago is like in "Hermes the Olympian" and "Hermes the Egyptian". In my books I just refer to the place as "Phlegraea". See the place where... More

Although in reality they do not think the people in this space, but if you arriving you will think to just be here. Here's a real bubbling crater in the middle are. Around the much steaming hot.

Yes. This is a truly amazing place, with a long and violent, smelly geological history and is a sort of deadly threat on the doorstep of Europe. if you don't believe me, and think I am some insane prophet of doom, Google it and see what others have to say too. Vesuvius is huge, but the super-volcano under the area... More

Campi Flegrei is an area North of Naples which includes the cities of Pozzuoli, Bacoli, Monte di Procida and Quarto. Even if it is not as famous as the area south of Naples- which includes places like Sorrento and Pompei- Campi Flegrei have their fare share of history and attractive. You will have the opportunity to visit some amazing places... More
