The excavated buildings, dating from the first century BC to the fourth century AD, are structured across seven terraced levels. A lot of the buildings, mosaics and statues are still under water. The ancient Roman city of Baiae, on the northwest shore of the Gulf of Naples, was once a popular coastal resort famous for its idyllic location and therapeutic mineral springs. Baia was the hottest vacation spot among prominent members of the Roman aristocracy such as Julius Caesar, Nero, Caligula, Augustus, Pompeius the Great, Marcus Antonius, Septimius Severus … the list goes on. Many had their own villas built there.

Thrilling to walk through the beautiful buildings and up and down the steep stairs. I wondered how the poor servants had to run up and down those steps. Take good walking shoes and walk everywhere. You can really go into every room and take in the views as if this was your house. I enjoyed every step.
The whole place is described along the way

This park preserves a remarkable row of Roman villas and baths, all terraced into the hillside. The elite came here to party and bath in the hot springs during the 1st century BC. It can be hard to visualise how the building would have looked just from the foundations that remain. There are, however, some fascinating details like the service passages to explore. Take your time over a visit here and be sure to go into the so called 'temple of Mercury', which is covered by one of the oldest concrete domes in the world.

Going there can be quite tricky. We went there with public transport. Take a train from Naples to Fusaro. Leave the station and go right and then right again to a small Tobacco shop (Tabbacheria Illiano Di Lubrano). Here you can buy bus tickets, both ways. At Baiae there is no ticket office and you can't buy a ticket in the bus. Go then back to the station and then to the street on the other side of the station. There will be a bus to Baiae.

The museum is in a castle on a hill. It is an amazing collection mainly with finds from Cumae and Pozzuoli. Many first class statues, reliefs, but also many vases and smaller finds, telling you the history of two ancient cities.

You can walk from the museum to the ruins of Baiae. It takes about 20 minutes. Baiae is a big archaeological site. The main interest is the architecture. Several domes are well preserved. The site is at the slope of a hill. There are stunning views on the sea too. Besides the architecture there are a few wall paintings and mosaics. Archaeologist often do not have any clue about the functions of the building, adding some mystery to the site. There are many labels explaining the remains (so far as possible). Interest in archaeology is essential.

Part of The Phlegrean Fields, the entrance fee of €4 covering this and a number of other sites in the area (valid for two days) makes it an enticing offer. While some of the exhibits within the castle are well worth viewing (staff were most helpful), it is the view from the top of the castle which is utterly stunning. It is a great shame plans to use the vast terrace have had to be abandoned. The exhibits largely come from the Baia Archaelogical Park, which is, itself worth a visit. The entrance to the Park has been altered – these days’ entry is made from the coastal road circa 100 metres north, and on the same side as Locanda del Testardo with parking down by the harbour (the road parallel to the coast road).
