We visited Baia, the ancient site and outdoor stay of many Roman emperors. Most of the villas are under water. Alas the underwater trips start at march, so we missed that. On land some parts are visible.

When you approach the entry you can’t imagine what’s hidden behind the car park. It’s a vast open area with plenty to see and amazing views. Well preserved and stunning place. Only criticism I have that the tourist information and signage is poor. But the...More

A great archaeological site. The excavated buildings, dating from the first century BC to the fourth century AD, are structured across seven terraced levels. A lot of the buildings, mosaics and statues are still under water and we didn't have the time to find out...More

The dive was very unique and had a dive partner. The underwater ruins were made for an incredible dive experience. The park is cool too. I love the ancient temples.

Hardly any visitors and site is huge. Very interesting. There is a Pantheon type structure that is actually more than 100 years older than Pantheon in Rome! Amazing. Tickets cover Flavian Amphitheater and several other sites. All for 5 Euros.

I'd not advocate skipping Pompei in favor of Baia, but I certainly wouldn't miss these amazingly accessible ruins. The baths are particularly intact. Baia also offers underwater scuba tours that are worl class.

Sorry to get to my tripadvisor 20 days after your December question. I don't know about opening in December being a tourist from Australia but be aware that the weather is rather cold this time of year.

Use the train that goes North from Naples (Napoli) and connects through Pompeii, Ercolano and keeps heading north to Baiae/ Pozzuoli (the Circumvesuviano)

Once you get off at the Circumvesuviano station at Baiae, where to then? Do you need to buy the ticket in advance? I hear that you can get on line a ticket that gives you several entries. Thanks
