Whoever is fond of sea, myth, history and nature will find Bacoli a great destination. The current city is fruit of the urban redevelopment that happened during second half of the XX century and, if you come and visit this lovely place, you will understand why stunning villas rich in marble and beautiful mosaics were built here. A unique experience accompanied with the intense scent of sea, tasty local dishes and authentic flavours. A real emotion that becomes pleasure, tradition and beauty.
Bacoli has Roman origins, it was founded with the name of Bauli as holiday resort. Symmachus said about Bauli:
"I left that place because there was the risk that if I got too fond of Bauli, I would not have liked all the other places that I still had to see".
Following the collapse of the Roman Empire, Bacoli declined, too due to some geological phenomena such as bradyseism and erosions. The city revived throughout the centuries and little by little became a renowned tourist destination.
