About the Fields of Fire: Baia, Cumae and the Campi Flegrei Walk in Naples
Jutting into the blue espanse of the Bay of Naples, the Campi Flegrei (or Phlegrean Fields) represent the area's focal point of classical civilization, and offer a welcome respite from the crowds at other more highly-visited archaeological sites, such as Pompeii. Covering a wide swath of coastal land, the area is made up of a smattering of ancient towns, underground tunnels, classical temples and theatres and steaming volcanoes. As the first Greek settlement on the Italian mainland, this area's historically rich atmosphere, aided by its stunning natural beauty, speak multitudes about the intricacies of the dramatic natural landscape and the legends, myths and cults it spawned. In the company of one of our docents, either a classicist or archaeologist, we will explore a handful of the region's sites, many of which are protected as national parks, which best exemplify the dramatic history of the Fields.
