The Solfatara gives you the feeling of of a real volcano. It displays boiling water, fumes, red ashes and very hot soil. I went there with my grandchildren (6, 7, 11 and 13 years of age) and they enjoyed the place.

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!
