6 of the best Mediterranean underwater ruins to dive
A first century BC aristocratic villa, Emperor Claudius’ Nymphaeum and ancient pillars among fumaroles are but a few highlights within this underwater archeological park, which once was a Roman resort west of current Naples. For years these ruins were only enjoyed by a few intrepid archaeologists, but now tourists can visit the park to see some of its preserved underwater mosaics, statues and Roman ruins. If you are not into diving it is also possible to view the ruins by taking a tour in a glass-bottomed boat.
