The jewel of Campania on the Tyrrhenian Sea
A small municipality near Naples, Bacoli is among the most renowned historical and archaeological sites in Campania. Overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, it offers stunning views of the Gulf of Naples, over which towers the Aragonese Castle, built for defensive purposes in 1495 on the remains of a Roman villa.
You can explore the depths of the Piscina Mirabilis, the huge ancient Roman cistern, able to hold up to 12,600 cubic metres of water.
The small Casina Vanvitelliana is an incredibly beautiful building that stands alone in the middle of Lake Fusaro. It was commissioned in the late 18th century by Ferdinand I of the Two Sicilies, who would relax there after hunting parties.

For an unmissable, unique experience, visit the Underwater Archaeological Park of Baia: on a guided tour, you can dive into the sea to admire archaeological remains of the highest value and beauty, surrounded by marine fauna.
