The Phlegraean Fields are called “Campi Ardenti” in Italian – which means “Burning Fields” in English. This area to the west of Naples witnesses violent volcanic activity and represents one of the largest and most fascinating archaeological sites in the world.
This combo ticket is valid for two days and gives you access to each of following four sites once:
- The Archaeological Museum of the Phlegraean Fields at Baia, possibly built on the site of one of Emperor Nero’s residences, and Miseno, the principal military port of the Roman Empire.
- The Baia Archaeological Park. Baia was the exclusive retreat of the elite in Roman times, as attested to by the sumptuous thermal spa structures and imperial villas, which are now partly submerged by the waters of the sea.
- The Flavio Amphitheater and the Serapeum Temple in Pozzuoli, a city founded by the Greeks as “Dicaearchia,” the “City of Justice” and later the biggest city port of the antique world, with its “subterranean Pompeii.”
- The Archaeological site of Cuma, the first Greek colony established in Campania, with its exquisite acropolis and so-called “Antro della Sibilla.”
You won't regret taking the time to explore these sites, all of which are in a beautiful coastal area west of Naples.

Baia was selected as an ideal location for Roman imperial family and aristocracy and was subsequently lavished with marvelous villas. The Spanish castle, now home to the Archaeological Museum of the Phlegraean Fields holds important artifacts relating to Baia, Miseno (the principal military port of the Roman Empire) and Bacoli.
The Baia Archaeological Park
The Baia Archaeological Park includes an unparalleled archaeological patrimony – including the ruins of thermal and hydraulic systems (the “temples,” which in reality were thermal baths dedicated to Mercury, Venus, Diana); as well as the baths of Sosandra; the “Cento Camerelle” (a complex of cisterns), the “Piscina Mirabile,” (the biggest cistern ever built in the ancient world), the tomb of Agrippina, the military port of Miseno, the theater, and the monumental tombs.
The Flavio Amphitheater and the Serapeum at Pozzuoli
Capable of holding up to 40,000, the Flavio Amphitheater is the third biggest of the Roman world, after the Colosseum in Rome, and the theater of Capua. Such grandeur testifies to the extraordinary technical skills achieved by the ancients. It was located at a crossroads which linked Naples, Capua, and Cuma.
The Temple of Serapis is a unique testimony to the dockland and commercial district of "Puteoli, " the Pozzuoli of today. So called for the statue of the god Serapis (which today is housed in the Archaeological Museum of Naples), the temple is one of the best examples of "macellum" – a food market – built between the end of the first and the beginning of the second century A.D. and restored under the Emperor Severi in the third century. The shops and boutiques were situated in rows in a courtyard that supported a large entrance gate and marble decorations. The final row held a hall with apses for the Imperial Cult and the protectors of the market, among whom was the Graeco-Egyptian divinity Serapis.
Cuma Archaeological Site
The Cuma site includes great temples dedicated to Apollo and Jove, which were transformed into churches during the Middle Ages. The site preserves traces of the Greeks, Samnites, Romans, and Early Christians. The northern necropolis, and the late second century BC amphitheater, which is one of the oldest in Campania, are outside the fortified city walls.
