Roman Thermal Baths at Via Terracina

From the great flood of visitors that come to Naples who are attracted more by Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri, only a few make the journey to the rich areas of ancient testimony of Pozzuoli, Baia, Miseno and Cuma. Yet Neapolitan tourism has, one could say, its origins on the Flegrean coast.

Real Bosco di Capodimonte

In 1742, the Baroque Italian architect, Ferdinando Sanfelice designed the Real Bosco di Capodimonte – a forested area to cater to King Charles’ love of hunting. Today, the gardens cover 130 hectares and feature over 400 varieties of trees.  The Bosco is reached through the Porta di Mezzo gate behind the Polizia di Stato building. A second entrance to the park is at the Porta di Miano at the northwestern end of the park on Discesa Bellaria, just off Via Miano.

A creamy concoction made of caffè, eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese, its name says it all. It’s a “pick-me-up”. A rich and and oh so luxurious dessert, each layered bite-full practically melts in your mouth.
