The geological park of Solfatara is situated 11 kilometres from the town of Pozzuoli in the Metropolitan City of Naples province.
Classed as a shallow volcano, it emits steaming jets of sulphur from the ground and is a typical example of why the wider area is sometimes referred to as the Campi Flegrei or the Phlegraean Fields which roughly translates from Greek as "Burning Fields".
