The gentle inlet of the town of Baia is the remains of an ancient crater, one of many within the Phlegrean Fields Caldera. The supervolcano, in addition to Vesuvius, is still active and “breathes”, pushing the coast up and down along the sea level. Baia, a pleasant resort of Roman patricians and emperors, was dotted with beautiful summer villas, decorated with fine marble statues and complex mosaics. The remains are now underwater, due to the phenomenon of bradyseism (volcanic uplift), but shallow and you can visit the Underwater Archaeological Park of Baia by snorkeling or diving. Then, by canoe, we arrive to Castello Cape, where stands the majestic Aragonese fortress, site to the Archaeological Museum of the Phlegrean Fields.
