1. Chiesa di Santa Maria delle Grazie
The church of Santa Maria delle Grazie is the oldest parish in the diocese of Pozzuoli, elevated on November 15, 1624 by Bishop Lorenzo Mongiò. In ancient times it had competence over a vast territory, which included: Pozzuoli, Agnano, Bacoli, Bagnoli, Licola, Miseno and Monte di Procida. Following the creation of other parishes in these areas, the area of competence of Santa Maria delle Grazie today has been reduced to only a part of the city center.
2. Rione Terra
Rione Terra is a historic quarter in Pozzuoli, Italy, in the Phlegraean Fields region west of Naples. The ancient fortress originally served as the acropolis for the Greek settlement of Dicearkia before being integrated as the Roman port city of Puteoli. The densely built-up district is located on a small tufa promontory overlooking the Gulf of Pozzuoli and today serves as a tourist attraction.
3. Arco Felice Vecchio
Arco Felice is a fraction of Pozzuoli with about 10,000 inhabitants, bordering the municipality of Bacoli. Its name derives from the old arch of the same name, a wide door to the ancient city of Cuma, built in the first century by Emperor Domitian, although it is actually located in the adjacent hamlet of Licola, on the border with the hamlet Cuma-Fusaro of the municipality of Bacoli.
4. Anfiteatro Flavio
The Flavian Amphitheater, located in Pozzuoli, is the third-largest Roman amphitheater in Italy. Only the Roman Colosseum and the Amphitheatre of Capua are larger. It was likely built by the same architects who previously constructed the Roman Colosseum. The name "Flavian Amphitheater" is primarily associated with the Roman Colosseum.
5. Stadio di Antonino Pio
The stadium of Antonino Pio in Pozzuoli, brought to light in 2008, can be considered of particular importance for the rarity of this type of building in the Western Roman Empire, except for the stadium of Domitian, today Piazza Navona. Remains of ancient stages are found between Greece and Asia Minor.
6. Macellum Tempio di Serapide
The Macellum of Pozzuoli was the macellum or market building of the Roman colony of Puteoli, now the city of Pozzuoli in southern Italy. When first excavated in the 18th century, the discovery of a statue of Serapis led to the building being misidentified as the city's serapeum or Temple of Serapis.
7. Parco archeologico di Cuma
The archaeological excavations of Cuma have returned the remains of the ancient city of Cuma, one of the oldest Greek colonies in Italy, dating back to 730 BC and abandoned in 1207 when it was destroyed by the Neapolitan armies.
8. Basilica Cattedrale San Procolo Martire
