Lake
“Lake Avernus is a volcanic crater lake. It is near the volcanic field known as the Phlegraean Fields and comprises part of the wider Campanian volcanic arc. Avernus was of major importance to the Romans, who considered it to be the entrance to Hades. Roman writers often used the name as a synonym for the underworld. In Virgil's Aeneid, Aeneas descends to the underworld through a cave near the lake. In Hyginus' Fabulae, Odysseus also goes to the lower world from this spot, where he meets Elpenor, his comrade who went missing at Circe's place.”

Historic Site
“The Bay of Baia was one of the most important areas of Ancient Rome which was submerged with the eruption of Pompeii. It is still possible to see the very well preserved villas and statues under the sea. Either by sub aqua diving or by organizing a glass bottom boat trip which goes from Baccoli. Either way you must book as they are always super booked up and apparently you need to be lucky with the weather as sometimes the water cannot be very clear.”

“Incantevole! Il complesso archeologico di Baia è un'area archeologica situata a Baia, frazione di Bacoli, nell'area dei Campi Flegrei. Tra i resti più significativi sono da segnalare alcune strutture voltate a cupola come il grande Tempio di Diana, il Tempio di Mercurio e quello di Venere (si tratta di strutture termali e non di luoghi di culto, per i quali però è sopravvissuta la denominazione popolare). Di fronte in lontananza si vede Pompei”
