Overview
More
Pozzuoli is billed in travel books as being a town filled with archaeological sites. When one arrives in Pozzuoli one is greeted with litter, bad signage, and several easy-to-find archaeological sites which are overgrown with weeds and covered in trash. I never made it to the top archilogical site (the Flavian Amphitheater) because of bad signage and general disgust with the city. The street address above marks roughly the center point of the city.

How lovely to see the temple and all the structures around it. I don't know if you can walk down among the ruins but from above you can get a very good feel about this place. There was very little water on the day we...More

We had downloaded information on the place before visiting, which was well as there was nothing on site. The site is well preserved and presented though sadly not accessible. However, there are excellent viewing spots around. The relationship of the site to the bradyseism affecting...More

This is a very small venue with one placard of explanation in Italian only. You can stop here for three minutes, snap a photo, and be on your way. Nothing special at all.

Lovely bit of history right near the port. When we visited in early September there was only one other couple looking and photographing this interesting site. And very nice places to eat all gside it.

Great place to have lunch or even better dinner in one of the cafes around it. You can also see the effect of bradyseism common to the surrounding area.

I have seen a lot of Roman ruins over the years, and while nice enough these are nothing I would ever go out of my way to see. Temple or marketplace, this is a relatively small site which is worth spending ten minutes viewing if...More
