The city of Pozzuoli itself isnt very nice, but the remnants of the roman buildings compensate this. Especially the roman amphitheatre ist preserved very well and you can watch nearly every part of it. Even in the subterranean levels you can go. Around the theatre there's the museum where you can also watch some nice findings, also a lot of grave stones by the romans, telling you stories of the deceased. It was an interesting day going there.

Besides the contrast of having such an immense Temple in such a small community, another thing that surprises the visitor is the fact that the place is really unspoilt, a plain village one might think. The same houses and the same vegetation from some hundreds of years ago are still there and everybody goes by their own business, a tranquil, peaceful area disturbed only by the tourists who come here for the same thing, to see where one of the greatest neo-classical artists Antonio Canova was born, lived and worked. He was the one that planned the Temple and set the first stone in 1819. What you see now is his dream come true and more. He... Read more »
