There is so much history in this park. You can wander at your own pace and enjoy every little bit. Sibyl's cave is beautiful, the walkways among the trees are so enjoyable, the different temples as you go uphill and the stunning views from above....More

A lovely quiet place to visit. Both ruins views and countryside. Occasional svhool parties are easily avoided. No hustle and bustle lets you enjoy the place.

These old ruins have an interesting history, but they aren't very spectacular. I would not forgo another worthwhile site in order to see this. There are some picturesque views from here, but that is about it. If you do go, you can see it all...More

Cumae is where the Greeks started their first settlement in Italy and was later taken over by the Romans. The settlement area was not open to the public as there were more excavations underway. The open part boasts two temples and the Oracle of Sibyl....More

The site pre-dates Roman rule, and has some interesting ruins of temples here and there. Very picturesque and nice view of the sea from up high. The Cave of the Sibyl alone is not worth the trip, but explore the entire site, it is worth...More

For centuries, people believed that Virgil was drawing on his epic imagination to describe the sibyl's cave in Aeneid Book 6, when Aeneas descends to the underground to meet his father Anchises. In 1950 it was discovered that the chimney to a pizza maker's oven...More

The Cuma ruins are largely bypassed by large tourist groups, so they made an ideal spot for our group to tour around the site, which goes from sea level to breath taking views of Pozzuoli and Procida. Great for children and families. Given the lack...More
