This former trading counter, founded by the Greeks, became a major trading port under the Romans. As the town is at the centre of the volcanic area known as the Phlegrean Fields, it is constantly affected by plate tectonics which occur in the region. Changes in sea level led to the harbour being abandoned and, in 1970, the evacuation of Pozzuoli's town centre. It is gradually undergoing restoration and refurbishment to become an open-air museum.
