Cuma

CUMA

Proceeding from the Campi Flegrei there's the archaeological site of Cuma. Here during the VIIIth century b.C. landed the greeks form the nearby island of Pythecusa (Ischia), the first towns of the Magna Grecia in the bay of Naples and in the upper part of the tyrrenean sea.

Cuma was founded on the top of a hill right on the sea, from the which it dominated the coast and played a vital role in spreading the Hellenic culture.
After the collapse of the Roman Empire, it was progressively abandoned for becoming a safe shelter for pirates and Saracens and for this reason destroyed by an alliance of close cities in the Xth century.
Tradition recognizes in one of its tunnels the Atrium of the Sibyl where the greek hero Enea was announced a glorious destiny that will lead him to found the eternal Rome.

Acropoli’s ruins deserve a visit if you love archaeology and wild sceneries: we remember here the Roman Crypt, the Apollo's Temple and Jupiter's Temple.
