Dante's Inferno Narrative Tour on Lake Averno, Pozzuoli, Naples

The narrative walk of the Human Festival, “Inferno”, with its evocative capacity will give life to a literary journey led by guides and actors who lead the visitor on a journey into the places and within himself through beauty and narration. The participating public thus relives suggestions between the values of humanistic ideals and the anthropological culture of the territory.<br>Dante and Virgil walk together and converse about the things of the world.<br>Let's walk together along the shores of Lake Averno, in the sign and word of Dante ...<br><br>

While many other Roman coliseums or amphitheaters have more striking stands and above ground sections, none that I’ve visited (Rome, Arles, Verona, Pale, Autun) can match the Flavian Amphitheater’s underground areas. Remarkably well preserved and fully accessible, these ruins will give the visitor a much better sense of the mechanics of putting on a performance during Roman times. Admittedly, this amphitheater could not put on the sea battles that are attributed to the Coliseum in Rome, but they clearly were able to support all sorts of dramatic - and gory - show which we’ve all read about. When I visited, I almost had the site to myself and really soaked it all in. Admission is very reasonable and the amphitheater is a short walk from the train station. I highly recommend a jaunt out to Pozzuoli to visit this gem.

The site which is easy to reach on foot in the town of pozzuoli is an absolute treasure. Unlike visiting the “mother ship” or Colosseum in Rome, you can wander both below and around without dodging other tourists or waiting on line. We walked right in and passed one family and one guide with 2 clients during our 1 long visit. The lower level is particularly suggestive to see. I wouldn’t miss it if you are in the area of beautiful Campi Flegrei.

Pozzouli is only a cheap Metro ride from Garibaldi station in Naples and then only a 5 minute walk around the corner from dthe Solfatara station. It's only around 5€ entrance and like the other archaeological sites children under 18 get in for free. Be prepared to be challenged though and take a passport with you. This amphitheater is apparently the third largest made and the similarities to the Colleseum are obvious. Much of the major structure has been misappropriated over the centuries and it helps if you have seen the Colleseum to visualise the missing parts. Just like the Colleseum there are major structures beneath the amphitheater where the animals were introduced into the spectacle from via lifts around the main arena floor. There's not enough to keep you here for too long so combine it with other attractions in the area.

I highly recommend coming here. Even if you've been to Pompeii, the Colosseum, Verona, Capua, and visted many other amphitheaters. The preservation of the substructures is very special, and the way the outer vaults were adapted by collegia is quite interesting. If you are someone who reads inscriptions and examines the grave stelai and other pieces of stone they have stored there, you will have a blast.
