Beautiful place to visit. A place that supplied water to the ancient fleet in bygone days. Children might not like the place but people interested in history will love it. Recommended. Even the Curator of the British museum has vivited this place.

Well, what can I say about this place? Amazing that it still exists. Hauntingly beautiful, especially with rays of light entering through the ceiling. Just shows how ingenious the Romans could be. Well worth a visit when in Bacoli. We were lucky - the owner...More
