Naples Pozzuoli and the Phlegraean Fields (nearby)Pozzuoli can be found to the west of Naples and is a small city, containing a wealth of interesting Roman ruins and historic artefacts. The city of Pozzuoli is also famous for being the hometown of famous Italian movie star Sophia Loren.

Pozzuoli was once the main port of Italy and is within easy reach of Naples city centre. The Senate once seriously considered digging a 257 km / 160 mile canal to connect the Pozzuoli port to Rome in an attempt to make shipping easier.

One of the main attractions in Pozzuoli is the grand amphitheatre on Via Domiziana, which is open daily and well worth a visit.
