    Astroni Nature Reserve Details

    With all the amazing and well known attractions and landmarks throughout Italy, it can be all too easy to overlook one of the countrys best assets: its resplendent natural beauty. However, if youre visiting Naples, theres one stop you can make where youll be sure to come away understanding just why its thought of as one of the most beautiful places in Europe.

    The Campi Flegrei area in general is renowned for its lush forests and gleaming lakes, but the Astroni Nature Reserve houses something decidedly unique: a 296 hectare crater with rolling hills and a variety of lakes. The crater was originally formed thousands of years ago as the result of volcanic activity, and the resulting rich soil has allowed the Astroni crater to grow some of the most varied and dense flora and fauna to be seen anywhere in Europe.
