  • These catacombs are in the center of the rione sanità, inside the basilica, always managed by the great guys at "paranza" where are also companions ... smaller than those of san gennaro, but full of interesting frescoes.

  • They have impressive dimensions. Preserved original paintings and the explanations of the guides are wonderful but they are only in Italian and English.

  • Wonderful visit to the catacombs of San Gaudioso accompanied by a great guide of the cooperative Paranza. Visit absolutely recommended.

  • Nothing impressive and the tour is short and definitely expensive. Flora, the guide that leaded the tour in English, looked just bored about what she was doing and her level of English was not high enough. I was really disappointed. Assolutamente niente di impressionante o interessante, carissimo per quel che propone. Non posso credere che a Milano l'Ossario (che è stupefacente) sia gratuito e qua prendano nove euro! Decisamente non ne vale la pena, uno spillar soldi immotivato.
  • Great experience, the tour guide was very helpful. And they explain everything. The church is very pretty also.
  • Very interesting catacombs. We have been to several ones in Rome, where one has a church, another one frescoes, another one mosaiques. The ones in naples have all of that, in one place. Moreover, they allow you to make pictures, totally forbidden in Rome. Smaller groups allow you to enjoy them more and reflect on where you are. And this is a social project run mainly by youth and volunteers who show that in this marginal neighborhood there is something truly special. I consider these catacombs hence superior to the Roman ones. Another tip, the nearby catacombs of s Gaudioso show a strange corpse momification and walling in cult that was popular in the 17th century and can hardly be seen anywhere else in the world. You can do both catacombs with the same ticket, valid for one year. Fascinating place.
  • Astounding catacombs. Actually a graveyard which is underground. It is interesting that these catacombs were used by Christians. Recommended.
  • Separate tours in Italian and English leave every hour. The ticket gives you access to the catacombs in San Gennaro too, valid for a year, so you don't have to binge on catacombs in one day, although we did & still enjoyed both! Definitely recommend a visit which boasts the recent opening of the restored cript. Obviously not recommended for those with mobility problems.
