Part of The Phlegrean Fields, the entrance fee of €4 covering this and a number of other sites in the area (valid for two days) makes it an enticing offer. While some of the exhibits within the castle are well worth viewing (staff were most helpful), it is the view from the top of the castle which is utterly stunning.... More

The setting, curation, and extensive collection of this museum should place it among the best in the world. There are artifacts from Greek and Roman periods of some 3000 years, including the only known Roman casts of Greek sculptures, used for their own duplication. I had dived the underwater temples of Baia, and now laid before me were artifacts from... More

Extremely interesting and well organised resources which is set in a wonderful location. The staff were likewise very helpful and welcoming. Remember the opening times and the afternoon siesta to ensure you have time to visit the whole museum. Toilets and facilities well thought out too which made the whole experience a pleasure. Most definitely worth a visit .

A little Pompei on the sea. My favorites are above and the view from above terraces. Then on the far South end of the top roof terraces the very special suspended floors and clay feet (prefabricated clay feet) for what used to be a suspended floor for heating purposes. Do not miss the terrazzo wall decorations. Then just walk down... More

Combined ticket for 4 sites(Cuma,Pozzuoli Amphitheatre,&Castle )only €8.I would have paid €8 for just this site.The site is very big. We arrived by car and parked in the port of BAIA, where you will find part of the complex. Beautiful "cupola" over what was a bath used by emperors.The site shows both baths and properties that adjoined it that were... More

Don't miss the baths! Go inside the dome, walk up the hill through narrow hallways, rements of the slaves, see the ancient statues and go on a boat to glimpse the forum under water in the bay.

In 1996, I was stationed at the U.S. Naval Hospital in Napoli, and coached a youth soccer club (NATO Jaguars Youth Soccer Club). Baia and the neighboring town of Baccoli host an annual International Youth Soccer Tournament, with games played, literally, at the base of the Castle/Fortress. You could look straight up 100-200 feet and see the ramparts of the... More

We stayed in the area for a week. Couldn't get enough. Museum is well managed., the gallery should have something to capture everyone's interest. The castle just makes the visit so much more authentic.

Absolutely stellar view from the top of the castle. The castle is authentic with drawbridge and ramparts. Few military artifacts present. Museum galleries divided into artifacts from Ancient Greek settlement of Cuma, artifacts from Roman Puzzuolli and some from Baia. Signs in English and Italian. Open mornings but closes by 1 pm as do most things in this area as... More
