This is something different from all of those museums and archeological sites. Be aware of the strong volcanic smell, this place is packed with sulfur. You can see it and you can smell it too. Go and check it out!

Not being Valeria we might help you nevertheless. I just called them. They are still closed for the public and will remain closed until further notice, which means for the next years here in Southern Italy. The camping site is open. You can check yourself by calling +39 081 526 2341 or 526 7413. They speak a kind of English. You might arrange a very private private tour under close guidance, but that will come with a hefty price tag...Cheers from Napoli!
