I took a group of 20 to experience this true volcanic crater experience. It is here that the wonder of tectonic activity can be appreciated first hand, with the bubbling pools, the temperature variations in the ground, the hot steam vents and the sometimes overwhelming...More

Visited Solfatara after walking around Pozzuoli for the day. It's not often that you can get so close to active volcanic activity, with all the steam streaming up from the ground. You can smell the sulfur from afar and I just wish there can be...More

I went to Pozzuoli to see Solftatara volcano. I walked the 20 minutes to the place and then paid around 8 Euro to see the volcano. A beautiful site.

It's an unsettling experience because you are on a volcano caldera that extends for a large circle with Pozzuoli at it's center. And you can smell the sulfur and feel the heat below your feet but it's unforgettable.

No, I did not think it was dangerous. Anything that could be dangerous is fenced off and if you stay on the designated trails, all will be well. We loved it there!
