This is a good place to walk your dog or just get some exercise. The trail takes you past ruins and some vineyards. The trail is wide and I use our jogging stroller with no issues. During the week it is very peaceful but on...More

This beautiful lagoon(?) formed by a volcanic caldera is very peaceful. It is a good place to take a picture especially from above. Unless you stop at a cafe, it won't take long.z

The best part of this attraction ya not really the lake, but roaming the streets and hills of Pozzouli. Have a simple lunch or dinner at one of trattorias or pizza bars. For dinner, remember this is Italy, so don't try to find dinner much...More
