Why locals love it

This ancient little acropolis has now been returned to its full splendour. A place of great historical significance, it’s full of beauty, but at the same time has a difficult story to tell. It’s perhaps one of the greatest symbols of bradyseism and the subsequent earthquake. Locals have come to fully appreciate it ever since its rebirth.

Why you should visit it

Come here for a special trip back in time. It’s a stratified city where you can witness many centuries of history, from the splendour of the Roman era to its abandonment through to its wonderful, present-day recovery. It’s a place where you can travel through the history of Pozzuoli!

Special tip

Don’t miss the cathedral – it was only recently reopened to the public.
Pozzuoli is located a bit outside of Naples, so plan your transport well!
