Become an aquatic archaeologist for the day as you explore the ancient ruins and spectacular marine life of the Gaiola coastline. Uncover the secrets of a once-thriving city now submerged in water and find treasures you can only see from beneath the surface.
Located in the Bay of Naples, Gaiola is a protected marine area that offers you the unique opportunity to view a submerged city (the geologic shifting known as “bradyseism” that creates this phenomenon is prevalent in this area of Italy).
Your tour starts at the Gaiola Visitor Center, where films and photos provide you with interesting knowledge of the natural and historical features of the region. Then hit the water for a first-hand encounter with the ancient city's ruins and the marine life that now inhabits them. Follow your expert guide along the coastline and discover underwater sites only visible to those who take the plunge.
