If you are at Pozzuoli, you can visit great remnants of the ancient amphitheatre and a lot of grave stones by the romans, telling you stories about the deceased. It is rather interesting if you like history and archeology. You can try to spell out the inscriptions and translate it. It's a great feeling actually, if you like such things.
Regarding the city, it's a town, that hasn't got much more to offer than the roman buildings and som findings. It's worth a visit, but not for longer than a day or two, just to look around.
