“The beach under the castle”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

Great swimming on the beach right under the Baia Castle ( La Spiaggia del Castello di Baia). 2 minute boat ride to the beach. Well kept, protected beach. Good food. Beautiful setting.

“Baia”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

If you are a scuba diver and you want to see something that is different and exciting this is the place to go. do not worry about the hotel, the city, the traffic, once you are underwater and you see this all you will talk about for the next few months is this trip

“charming”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

We dived in the archaeological park over several days and saw mostly all that you could see - ruins, the nymphaeum, portus julius, mosaics, amphora, fumeroles and an active vent - wonderful photographic opportunities underwater. We combined this with a visit to Pompeii and Herculaneum and had a great time. Well worth it.

“Archaeological Park at Baia”
Reviewed 30 October 2012

This seems to be an infrequently visited site. It is an impressive place to walk around, in and amongst the ruins of how the Roman wealthy used to live - they describe the area as the 'Monte Carlo' of ancient Rome. We think it a wonderful discovery and we have visited twice, bringing friends. There are well-written (but technical) descriptions on placards in English and Italian. The walk starts at the top of the site. Make sure you get to the bottom for the Temple of Mercury, once the largest dome in the world, and the famous 'upside down' fig tree. Opening hours and days vary, so you will need to figure out a way of finding out in advance. The best place to start is at the Castello di Baia (about a mile away - you have to have a car for all this) which is open weekend mornings and where you buy a cheap ticket for both places. Apparently, at other times of the week save Mondays entry is free. If you are interested in exploring Roman ruins, you will be very impressed here.

“Beautiful Roman ruins and no tourist crowds”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

The bath complex in this small town is worth seeing. Although parking is a bit of an issue, you can appreciate what wealthy Roman life was like as you walk through this huge area of bath and villa ruins. And as an added plus, no crowds even in the summer!
