Good view when driving past to Cumae. Easy to see why the Romans thought it was such a special place.

If you take the train to Luciano, you get off at the station on the beach (you can take a quick peak) and then walk the 15 minutes up to the very historically significant lake. There are the ruins of the Temple of Apollo there...More
