The Flavian Amphitheater
Typology: Archaeological site
Descrizione: The Flavian amphitheater in Pozzuoli is the third largest in Italy after the Colosseum in Rome and amphitheater in Capua. It was built by Vespasian, the first emperor of the Flavian dynasty. In the Middle Ages it was buried beneath a blanket of ash from the nearby (and still active) Solfatara volcano. The visit to the underground spaces of the amphitheater is particularly interesting. The admission ticket costs 4 euros, is valid for 2 days and includes admission to the archaeological sites of Cuma, the Campi Flegrei archaeological museum in the Baia castle and the site at the thermal baths of Baia.
