Points of Interest:
Aragonese Castle of Baia: built in the Bacoli’s area, on an important strategic point. It is located on a promontory naturally defended to the east by a high rocky precipice overlooking the sea, and by deep depression given by calderas of two volcanoes “Fondi di Baia” to the west . They are part of Campi Flegrei with the addition of walls, moats and drawbridges. The castle dominates the entire Gulf of Pozzuoli up to Procida, Ischia and Cuma. The position allows a very broad control of the zone, preventing any surprise attack against Naples.
Piscina Mirabilis: in Miseno, during the Augustan Age, it was built the largest Roman cistern of drinking water to supply the Misenensis Class. They sat up the most important Roman Empire fleet moored in the port of Miseno. Completely dug out of tufa, it represented the final Augustan tank that, from the sources of Serino, carried water to Naples and Campi Flegrei. In the nave stands a limaria pool which was used as tailings and waste tank for the cleaning and the emptying of the tank.
Casina Vanvitelliana: beginning from 1752, the area of Fusaro became the hunting and fishing area for the Bourbons, who entrusted Luigi Vanvitelli with the inicial works for the transformation of the place. When Ferdinand IV ascended the throne, the interventions were completed by his son, Carlo Vanvitelli. In the 1782, he created the Royal Hunting Lodge on the lake, near the shore. This building, known as Casina Vanvitelliana was used as residence of distinguished guest as Francesco II d'Asburgo-Lorena, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Gioachino Rossini and, recently, the President of Repubblic Luigi Einaudi.
