The Romans already knew the Solfatara since Imperial times. Strabone (66 B.C. -24 A.C.) gives the most ancient written testimony coming to us in his “Strabonis geographica”, indicating it with the name “Forum Vulcani”, dwelling of the god Volcano, entrance to Hades. The Solfatara opens up officially to visitors in the year 1900, although it was since time immemorial destination for its renown volcanic phenomena, for the therapeutic properties of the sulfurous waters and for the hot saunas; it was in fact included among the forty most famous thermae of the Phlegreaen Fields since the Middle Ages.

We visited the Solfatara just a few days ago and were most impressed with the idea of being on a volcano and seeing and hearing the natural activity. It was a bit difficult to find and it seemed like we were driving around in circles...More

The vulcano Solfatara is part of the Phlegraean Fields caldera. The ground is hot and steam and sulfuric fumes rise from the fumeroles. This is probably the closest a person can get to an active volcano as you can walk around the Solfatara and observe...More

Magnificent small volcano, unique in its gender. We visited it with young kids and they also loved it. The experience to see smoke (hot) coming out of the earth, smell the sulfur.. and walk in the caldera... superb...
