HOW TO GET
To better visit the Capo Miseno lighthouse and enjoy its panorama, excursions and guided tours are organized, but you can also get there on your own.
You arrive by car on the Capo Miseno promontory, through a road between old Roman villas and ruins, at the end of it there is a gallery beyond which you reach a terrace overlooking the Gulf of Pozzuoli. From the terrace (65m asl) it is then possible to walk to the top of Capo Miseno and the lighthouse, thanks to a path that climbs the slope of the promontory and offers a breathtaking view of all the islands of the gulf.
Another path to the top, less long but steeper, is located before entering the tunnel. This path passes through a very dense wooded area before reaching the top, where the vegetation is very luxuriant, sometimes making the excursion difficult. In these cases just follow the path, making the peripheral turn of the hill.
Even when the vegetation is not very high, it is advisable never to leave the marked paths, as the whole summit is affected by the remains of air raid shelters and cisterns from the last world war, whose openings or fractures are not always visible in the tall grass and for those who abandon the path there is a real danger of being able to fall into some underground cavity.
