  • Thanks to Chapman (or monaciello). A wonderful visit underground of old Naples. Not only enjoyed the hospitality, but also warm, ironic, playful spirit typical of Neapolitan culture. The tour lasted just right. We discovered how was born the legend of monaciello dated 1400! And not only! Besides the fascinating history and curious we discovered even anecdotes and stories much more "modern" Neapolitan life. The monaciello that lives on even today in the daily life of the people in the district, the history of the war. In short, recommended to everyone, young and old!

  • Before I explain my concerns which prompted me to give this judgment, it is appropriate to provide some useful information on the site. The Museum is very close to the metro station in Piazza Cavour, almost behind the exit of the latter. For those who decide to pay a visit during the daytime, the metro is by far the most comfortable and convenient choice. While for those who are inclined to an evening visit, keep in mind that the metro is open until 22:30. The Museum entrance is practically a "low napoletano" facing the street, marked by the presence of a large banner with the words "underground Museum." I get off in the subsoil of the city to admire these places that were once old cisterns and Greek-Roman aqueduct conduits and then, during the last war, they were used as shelters to avoid the Allied bombings, it is always fascinating. Admire the old artifacts uncovered, as well as the many graffiti which demonstrate how life continues even underground during the war, is always very attractive and impressive. I am sure, without any doubt that the cultural association that takes care of these places, from the greatest to make very interesting visits. I hope the only exception occurred last night with the "Night Tour of the spirits" which I believe is organized terrible! At least for me, the things that should be magazines are different: the first thing that definitely has to be reviewed, the number of participants. To give the right level of awesomeness in this type of tour, we must limit the number of participants, it is not plausible that involved two hundred or more people. I am sure that more visits with a number a lot, but much more limited, it is essential to create that "patos" that the theme of the evening was supposed to create. The choice of three "ghosts" famous stories dramatize, avoiding that kind of interaction with the audience that in the vast majority of cases, it is completely to dark stories of these noble women and therefore cannot understand for why these damned souls still lurking on the streets of the city. As far as I am concerned, I would recommend you review a few things. So the visit does not Go!!! by the way, regarding the final refreshment to exorcise and chase away the spirits that haunt the halls, perhaps maybe the pasta frittata is. .. (didn't know about nothing and was also without salt).

  • Place that deserves to be visited for the sensations springing. Unfortunately, the evening was not handled properly. First there was specific during the night tour of the subsoil which treated of the ghosts that inhabit precisely Naples. Very cute idea. Dramatized tour with aperitif. So far so good. The problem arises when we find ourselves in a unique group of 100 people underground. Question unmanageable. The Guide did not know affect enough guests to be careful about what he told. The actresses were good, nothing to say. In my opinion it lasted too. 2 full hours crammed into tunnels and cisterns to try to understand this woman thing was trying to tell us. The final appetizer was quite terrible. I won't describe it either. Could be a nice evening but the organizers preferred to collect more money than to make it enjoyable. I would not recommend it.

  • I don't usually do such bad reviews but this time I have to: I went to an event the ghost tour, could be out a beautiful thing and instead they let a hundred people all together, too much lighting, in over two hours tour We shot only three rooms when the whole complex is more than 3000 m2 and reaches the fontanelle cemetery. It was supposed to be a somber ambience instead and it was not. At the end of the tour there had to be an appetizer but they served some pretzel bites with tiny omelette Fanta or cola and nothing else. Basically I was 15e thrown. Avoid ghost tour but go to visit the Museum of the subsoil and immerse yourself in hidden tunnels, and explore the whole area if you have time.

  • A different experience from students. Striking the subsoil that is the backdrop to the representation "Dante's inferno" that fast and well built with a roundup of the main characters disappoint only a little in the final.
