Bacoli (Italian pronunciation: [ˈbaːkoli]; Neapolitan: Vacule [ˈvɑːkulə]; Latin: Bauli)[4] is a comune (municipality) in the Metropolitan City of Naples in the Italian region Campania, located about 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) west of Naples.

Geography[edit]

Bacoli borders the municipalities of Monte di Procida and Pozzuoli.

Its territory, of volcanic origin, is part of the Phlegraean Fields. The volcano of Cape Miseno and the Miseno port date from c. 35,000-10,500 years ago.

Main sights[edit]

The frazione of Cuma - Fusaro includes the site of Cumae, the first settlement in Italy by the ancient Greeks.

The archaeologial remains of Baiae are also located in the comune.

The frazione of Miliscola (from the Latin militum schola) was, in the Roman Empire, the seat of a military school
