We emailed the info directly to reserve a place 2 days prior and it was hassle free from the start. There is a separate queue for those snorkelling and those going to sunbathe. Our tour guide Simone was fantastic. Even though English wasn’t his first...More

One of the most fascinating and mysteries places in Naples. Of a dazzling beauty. Snorkeling to admire the underwater beauty of the villa of a rich Roman patrician: Pollione. An intricate mechanism of fish tanks, incredible for its modernity

I don't think there's anything to be booked. You just go. If you turn up early enough they let you into the protected area. If you're too late there's another beach to sit on and swim and you can have a look at the protected... More
