As you walk through the town you come to the Lungo Mare (sea promenade), it is lovely to stroll along here looking out to Capri and Sorrento in the distance. Pozzuoli, it is a beautiful old town, with lots of history attached and well worth exploring!
Cumana Railway This is the local train that runs along the northern coastline called the Cumana Railway. It links all the little towns around the bay together, making easy access direct to Naples. If you do decide to take advantage of our offer, I know you will not be disappointed.
Also other sites to be seen here are Volcano Solfatara - Temple of Serapis - Temple of Apollo - Temple of Venus - Port Julius now the submerged military port that was built in honour of Julis Caesar, can be seen by the glass bottom boat even better if you love scuba diving as guided tours are available - Rione Terra a town upon a town, below is the oldest nucleus of the Greek town with streets dating back to 194BC with the Roman town built on top - Monte Nuovo the youngest mountain in Europe, formed after a volcanic eruption on 29th September 1538. The sites are endless! Naples is also a wonderful city to be explored and is easily reached by the Cumana Railway, Metro Line and buses from Pozzuoli, making here an ideal place (also great for a City Break) if you do not want to stay in the busy City of Naples. If you have a week or two, you still won't have enough time to see everything and will want to return!
