Underground Naples, Naples

4.5
See the other side (literally) of the city with Underground Naples, offering a chance to tour a place some 40 m (130 ft) below the historic center of Naples. This secret, underground city remains a world apart from what you see above ground--a network of tunnels, Greco-Roman aqueducts, and air raid shelters from World War II. The tour takes you on a journey through history and provides a look at the city's turbulent past, from the ancient until the modern times. Most of the passages you'll see during the evocative tour were originally cut by ancient Greeks, who extracted tufa stone from this site. Part of your excursion will take place by candlelight and will lead through some very narrow passages--keep that in mind if you don't like tight, dark spaces.

  • Stunning route, especially with the guide that explains the history and curiosities of the place. Not suitable for those who suffer a lot in enclosed spaces

  • Very friendly and prepared guide. Amazing and complete experience. Go prepared for stairs and narrow places, Muuuy narrow

  • A good thing, it's worth the groceries. We thought it might be annoying, claustrophobic or whatever. Instead it is very pleasant.
