By train, I made my way from Pozzuoli to Baia, a lovely harbour and town and a very fashionable resort during the Roman Times!

particularly towards the end of the Roman Republic, when it was reckoned as superior to PompeiiHerculaneum, and Capri by the super-rich who built luxurious villas here from 100 BC to 500 AD. (Wikipedia)

Having a villa in Baia was a must for the Roman aristocracy!

Nothing in the world shines brighter than the gulf of Baia. (Horace)

After some caffé (and probably gelato) and a nice stroll around the harbour, I made my way to the former baths, still a little bit crushed that I wouldn´t be able to visit the Parco Archeologico delle Terme di Baia with the glass boat. But another time it will work out!

the Baia bath complex was the largest one in the world of ancient Rome. It runs along a 450-meter front; the entire hill from the “Baia saddle” down to the sea is covered with the ruins (Naples Life)
