Vulcano Solfatara reviews
We walked up to the site and just keep walking up the hill to get a great view of this crater with sulphur steam smoking out of it. You can smell it! Hopefully they will re-open it soon. 3 people... more »

I speak of the Solfatara of Pozzuoli, a caldera almost embedded in the urban landscape of the city and the most obvious manifestation of the flegrea eruptive nature.Visiting Solfatara with elementary/middle school was a must of my school years. Then we moved on to the EasterS at the Solfatara and then we came to the purest love for this symbolic place, terrifying yet fascinating beyond measure.
If you would like to see a volcano then please visit this place. I believe years back a family lost their life and fall inside it and since then for the purpose of security and safety they closed this place for public visit.A part of the European equivalent to Yellowstone Volcano. The last VEI class 8 eruption here was in the last glacial period (Wisconsin Glaciation) prior to the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM).
