71 Reviews

In the city of Pozzuoli, just outside Naples, sits the ruins of an ancient Roman market - the Macellum of Pozzuoli - in what is the larger Phlegraean Fields Regional Park.

The market structure was likely built between the 1st and 2nd centuries AD, and was excavated in the 18th century. At that time, a statue of the Greek god Serapis was found among the ruins, so some believed the building to have been a temple. Though it was later determined to be a marketplace, the name Temple of Serapis is also often used to describe the ruins.

Many of the Phlegraean Fields ruins are underwater due to the volcanic shifts in the area over the centuries, and the Macellum was no exception. While there are columns rising high above the modern street level, the ground level of the market itself is well below sea level. The columns show evidence of shellfish, as they were once underwater, too.

The ground level continues to move up and down very slowly, because the market is located near the middle of the volcanic caldera that makes up the epicenter of the Phlegraean Fields. Visitors today won’t notice the shift in ground level, though geologists track the site constantly.

The flagship of the Samnites, Greeks and Romans, the Campi Flegrei area was also very appreciated by all the rulers of the following periods: from the Angioini to the Aragonese, passing through the Spanish Viceroyalty to the Bourbon House. This experience has been consciously designed to allow you to visit what is considered one of the most impressive volcanic areas in the world. We will sail early in the morning on a comfortable rubber dinghy, immediately reaching the ancient port of Pozzuoli where we will disembark to visit the glorious Temple of Serapis.

Visit the Archaeological Route of the Rione Terra guided tour

Visit the Archaeological Route of the Rione Terra guided tour

The Rione Terra was the first inhabited nucleus of the city of Pozzuoli. The fortress is built on a 33-meter-high tuff spur, surrounded on three sides by the sea. Over the centuries it has been the scene of historical and natural events which have brought about important changes also in the morphology of the Phlegraean Fields. Despite this, it has always remained an inhabited center, keeping memory of the passing of the centuries. A group of exiles from Samos who fled the tyranny of Polycrates probably settled first on the fortress. These founded around 530 BC. Dicerchia, of which the archaeological excavation did not reveal substantial remains.
