Ninfeo Sommerso

It is the most famous and most visited site, located at the top of the Punta dell’Epitaffio
promontory. A position certainly not accidental, chosen by the emperors to cheer their most
prestigious guests: the main room is in fact a large banquet hall, reachable directly by sea: once
you got off the small boat you could dine lying on comfortable beds, surrounded by the waters
and numerous statues. Many of these were found during excavations and are now visible in

Villa a Protiro

It is the richest site in mosaics, from the iconic one of the peltas to the one recently identified with
the wrestlers. But it is above all one luxurious villa that was originally set between the sea and the
lacus baianus, in contact with the canal that connected them.
We can therefore see the large porticoed garden that gave light to the many rooms, some
decorated with marble flooring, but also the shops that opened onto the road that led to the

Terme del Lacus

Lacus therms
It is, at the moment, the last site open to the public, in summer 2020: a spa facility built inside a
large domus, full of mosaic and marble floors, all characterized by a lively polychromy.
In fact, we can find different geometries, square, hexagonal, octagonal, made with pink, red,
green, gray tiles, which characterized the mosaic floors of the main rooms of the baths, its tubs
for hot baths, and above all the apsidal rooms that were be open with large windows towards the
lacus baianus.

Portus Julius

The Portus Julius was commissioned by Augustus and especially by his son-in-law Agrippa in 36
BC. to prepare for the battle against Sextus Pompey, transforming the access to Lake Lucrino and
creating a connection with Lake Averno.
The military function was short, given the movement of the fleet to Miseno as early as 30 BC. and
perhaps also to give space to that great business that had already developed on Lucrino itself,
namely oyster farming, linked to the figure of Sergio Orata and followed by many senators.

Secca delle Fumose

A site different from the others, but strongly connected to them. We are in a nerve center of
Phlegraean thermalism, where in ancient times the emergence, in the middle of the sea, of hot
waters and vapors must have been very strong. So much so as to push the ancient Romans to
build an artificial island, one of a kind, to enjoy the healthiness of these products of Phlegraean
The latest hypotheses of the archaeologists see in the pillars, which are now visible at about 10

Villa dei Pisoni

It is the largest site in the Park: a very rich villa, built towards the sea by one of the most important
families of the Roman Senate: in fact, thanks to an inscribed pipe found here, they were the
original owners. With Nero we, precisely because of the conspiracy that took its name from the
same family, the entire complex passed to the imperial state property and was more transformed:
today it is possible to visit the majestic vaulted colonnaded portico, probably wanted by the
