OK, I tried. My legs and feet gave out on the hills. I did see the Sylbil's cave (no entry allowed) and I did climb to see some others, like Apollo. But up yet another part of the mountain were the remains of a temple complex and they were beyond my reach. As a lone traveler, I had to retire... More

This site is well worth seeing. It is beautiful and interesting... unlike anything I've seen anywhere else. The temple of Apollo was of particular interest to me,, but there are several magnificent sites available to see, with information signs in both Italian and English. Some of the sites were extremely sacred in ancient times, and have been referred to in... More

A wonderful and extraordinarily site, rich in classical history, just think about the most important poems the ancient Greece! The area is quite extensive and worth a visit but, I highly recommend of coming here with a private tour (I have used a driver), it is not easy to get there and the road did not seem very safe.

The site is interesting and very important in the ancient world. It has some signs but you need to know what you are looking at. Read in advance and take a good map. Worth the visit.

Our visit to Cuma was a highlight of our trip but it feels like the 'poor stepchild' of attractions. I would recommend reading up on it a bit first since the signage was very worn and, at least when we were there, there was a lack of tour guides. We were pretty much on our own. However, the temples and... More

I spent 2 hours trying to find how to get from Pozzuoli to Cuma. Somehow, Italian spirit and hospitality help me again, so I find right bus. This was a line used by high school students and old people. Only one guy, Emanuel, spoke English, but every passenger has something to say about site and they all have a lot... More

This is a large site, and certainly interesting to look at. We read all the signs in English, and still have no idea what we were seeing. Large sections were closed the day we were there. The Italians are missing a great opportunity to develop tourism here, but alas, everyone is in Pompeii.

By bus, it was quite an adventure! Buses are uncertain...But the ruins at this site with the sea as landscape were amazing!

Like many I suspect, our principle reason for visiting Cumae was to see the cave of the Sibyl. It was listed at the entrance as one of the features so one would reasonably expect it to be open. Well it wasn't. Not only that there's absolutely no signposting, a few grossly inadequate maps and a ridiculous number of staff (more... More
