The Phlegraean Fields - Rione Terra
The Phlegraean Fields - Rione Terra: Land of fire and water, volcanoes and lakes, mystery and splendor.
The Phlegraean Fields is a historical, archaeological and geological area of great interest. Many visitors to Naples look forward to this tour because of its uniqueness and the sites you get to visit.
On the tour you’ll get to see the Flavian Amphitheater, Rione Terra and Serapide Temple.
The Phlegraean Fields is located on the west side of Naples and is considered a large volcanic area of the south of Italy. The area extends from the hill of Posillipo to the ancient town of Cuma; and it includes the sights of the islands of Procida, Vivara, Ischia and the tiny Nisida.
Rione Terra is one of the most ancient quarters in the area, which brings you to the ancient Roman city of Puteoli, today known as Pozzuoli.
The Flavian Amphitheater, also located in Pozzuoli, is the third largest amphitheater (a structure similar to the Colosseum) in Italy. The Flavian Amphitheatre preserves traces of Corinthian columns, part of mosaic floors, and statues that give an idea of how majestic it once was.
Near the Pozzuoli port area, our local expert will take you to see the Serapide Temple, also called Macellum since it used to be an ancient market. The name Serapide was given because when the temple was first excavated, a statue of Serapis (an Egyptian God) was found.
