CAMPI FLEGREI and the SOLFATARA
Situated north west of Naples,
Campi Flegrei are one of the most interesting
spots out of Naples
city. In effect it's divided from Naples
simply by the hill of Posillipo, and it's considered as part
of the whole Naples bay,
but within its own bay and craters and with other considerable
peculiar signs that make it different from all the rest.
The last active crater of the Campi Flegrei
is the Solfatara, where it's still possible
to see some volcanic activityas gas emissions
and gives an idea of how Campi Flegrei were in the past when
volcanic activities were much more present in the area (crater
of Agnano and Lake of Averno).
Astroni's Crater is another dead crater with
a wonderful vegetation that made it a hunting area for the
Kings od Borboni Family. Today the reserve is under the protection
and management of WWF.
Monte Nuovo: the volcan which arose in only
one night in 1538, is now a dead crater of 180 metres covered
by a green vegetation and allows suggestive sights of the
whole volcanic area of Campi Flegrei. Nowadays is naturalistic
