Owner description: The Romans already knew the Solfatara since Imperial times. Strabone (66 B.C. -24 A.C.) gives the most ancient written testimony coming to us in his “Strabonis geographica”, indicating it with the name “Forum Vulcani”, dwelling of the god Volcano, entrance to Hades. The Solfatara opens up officially to visitors in the year 1900, although it was since time immemorial destination for its renown volcanic phenomena, for the therapeutic properties of the sulfurous waters and for the hot saunas; it was in fact included among the forty most famous thermae of the Phlegreaen Fields since the Middle Ages.

Closed until further notice. You can however drive past up the hill a few hundrrd yards and look into the area. The steam is still rising and the sulphury smell still there.

This volcano is amazing, showing how powerful the nature is. Steam and fumes rise from the ground and hot, acidic mud areas have claimed lives of wanderers recently. Becareful with your steps and enjoy.

We went in early March and the weather wasn’t good at all. We went up the road and it was all locked up. We could only look down at it from the little lane that runs up along the side of it which leads to a hotel and a residential area. We got a good view but didn’t actually get to go in . The smell......(rotten eggs).!!! I wish we could have gone in . I went in the 1980’s and it looks just as it did then . There’s a camping site in there now with a little swimming pool. It all looked closed and I read something about it opening in March so it will probably be open when the weather improves .

Went to see the place today, but it is closed.

You can however look at it from a distance to see clouds of gasses emerging from the crater.

Worth the visit if you are in the area

Visited here with a group of friends whilst on holiday based in Sorrento. Travelled here by train which is an easy and cheap way to travel. It is a short 10 minute walk from the train station (we stopped at a local cafe on the way Pasticceria Caffetteria (lovely cake and coffee). It is a fascinating place with sulphur lakes bubbling with heat, areas where steam erupts through the ground, set in a volcanic crater looking like the moon all white. Well worth a visit. Also a reasonable priced restaurant here with good choice of food and wine.
