The Mystical Phlegraean Fields: A Journey through Antiquity and Nature – Exclusive Excursions from Port
Step back in time and into another realm on this captivating tour of the Phlegraean Fields, or “the burning fields” as the ancient Greeks coined it. Located west of Naples, this celestial blend of natural wonders and ancient ruins offers a labyrinth of historical, mythological, and geological fascinations.
Three millennia ago, the ancient Greeks laid the groundwork for this spellbinding region—a land where myth meets matter and the line between legend and reality blurs. Discover the eerie Cave of the Cumean Sybil; the mystic Lago di Averno thought to be a gateway to the underworld, and walk on the lunar-like terrain of the active Solfatara volcano—surrounded by boiling mud pits and wafts of sulfur fumes, all enveloped by a dizzying array of vibrant flora.
Witness the remnants of civilizations past in Cumae, the ancient Greek city. Meander through the haunting ruins of Baia’s Roman thermal baths and stand awestruck in the grand amphitheater of Pozzuoli—the third-largest preserved Roman amphitheater in the world.
Uncover history, embrace the mystery, and soak in the natural splendor of the Phlegraean Fields. It’s an unforgettable voyage that marries the arcane with the aesthetic, curated for those who yearn to explore both the earthly and the ethereal.
