One of the most popular events in the province is back, we are talking about the "Fireflies and Sibyl at Lake Averno"Organized by Campi Flegrei Archaeological Group. The goal is not only to be enchanted by these little magical insects, but it is also an event cultural which highlights the legendary history that envelops the whole place.

Between nature and myth: what the excursion consists of

The exploration will take place of will be, after dark, to make the experience more suggestive.

The tour takes place inside the Campi Flegrei Regional Park, accurately close to the lake "Aornos" (άορνος), known for its literal translation "The lake without birds" but above all to be the access to the underworld according to the ancients. In particular it was Virgil in the Aeneid to narrate it as “A deep cavern, protected by a gloomy lake and the darkness of the woods, above which no bird could venture with spread wings with impunity”.

Not only the lake, but the whole place was narrated through myths related to Ulysses, to Aeneas and Sibilla and the spectator will be able to visit it by attending the magical "dance of fireflies" which happens at this time of the year.

It will therefore be a archaeological-naturalistic route, will not fail regional tourist guides who will accompany you through the local mystical paths telling the mythological aspect of the Sibyl, priestess of the god Apollo with divinatory powers and much more.
