Solfatara
Solfatara is a shallow volcanic crater at Pozzuoli, not far from Naples. Likely the most interesting of the 40 or more volcanoes that comprise the Campi Flegrei volcanic area, the Solfarata first formed about 4,000 years ago and last erupted in 1198. While dormant today, it still emits jets of steam with sulfurous fumes. Solfatara’s thermal waters were once believed to cure a variety of medical ailments and the crater was once home to a volcanological observatory, built in the year 900 by a German volcanologist. Ruins of the observatory can still be seen today.

Solfatara is now a popular tourist attraction with two unique phenomena to witness: the condensation of steam and the rumble of the ground when a rock is dropped just right. A walk around the crater floor takes you past the main fumarole known as Bocca Grande and the mud pit known as the Fangaia, as well as a variety of other fumaroles, mofettes and typical Mediterranean vegetation.

Practical Info

Solfatara is accessible by train from Naples, getting off at the Pozzuoil-Solfatara station.

Live a unique experience to explore one of the world’s few underwater archaeological parks. The journey from Naples to the Phlegraean Fields is short but full of surprises. Along the way you will stop at the active volcano Solfatara where you will be able to walk around and inside the crater, between geyser of sulphurous steam and bubbling mud. One of the highlights of this tour is the Flavian Amphiteatre, where you can explore the underside of this once-thriving stadium and wander through the gladiators’ quarters. Then visit the ancient Greek colony of Cumae and his Oracle Temple of the “Sybil” where the prophetess revealed to Aeneas his destiny as founder of Rome.
