Baiae: The Atlantis Of Rome 20 March 2022: Sunday on SBS

With an area three times larger than Pompeii, Baiae, about 15km from Naples and within the volcanic area of the Phlegraean fields, is the largest underwater archaeological site in the world. In 100BC, Pompeii is an ordinary city of small traders crouched on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius, while Baiae gains a peculiar reputation. It gradually becomes the ancient Las Vegas or Monte Carlo of the Roman Empire, a real posh centre for noble gens and the powerful. Today, the submerged remains of Baiae are protected by the creation of an archaeological park. This documentary reconstructs the life, history and secrets of the submerged city of Baiaa, Pozzuoli and Miseno, which were the most luxurious, fascinating, posh and dissolute corners of the Roman Empire.
