Museo e Parco Archeologico di Baia

Have you ever embarked on a drive to a destination not knowing what to expect and then getting so much more than what we could have ever expected? Well, the ruins at Baia were beyond expectation! Truly a gorgeous area!  Nessun golfo al mondo e splendido come quello di Baia; translated means, No gulf in the world is as marvelous as Baia’s. In the first century B.C., Baia was a residential center with villas and thermal baths built facing the gulf. The beauty and view attracted the Roman nobility and inevitably became the Imperial family’s residence for the next 3 centuries.
