PBS also featured Baiae a couple of years ago on their "Secrets of the Dead" episode titled "Nero's Sunken City":

What many people don't realize is that despite many of the remains being underwater, there are still  sizeable ruins that you can visit on land, just above -- including remains of a huge villa (lots of the structure is there but the mosaics and any paintings are mostly gone) and a huge baths complex with a dome that may have inspired Hadrian to create the one for the Pantheon in Rome.

 

Edited to add:  Also some of the findings from Baiae (above and below water) can be seen at the museum located in an old castle/fortress near the site:   https://www.around-naples.com/en/castle-baia.html

Yes, I saw some of your previous posts on Baiae. Can't wait to visit. 

We have been vaccinated and I am watching the European stats. Ready to jump over the pond as soon as it is safe.
