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.

  • Naples underground is definitely a great heritage of the city. I expected the visit to be more impressive and thorough. Very good, prepared and nice guides. It costs 10 euros, maybe a little excessive for what you can see.

  • €9 per person if you're free or $10 with guide. Guided tours are in Italian or English only. The guided tour lasts 50 minutes. We went free but as there was a guided tour you have to wait to get to the finish of the explanations. I thought it was very little, so much so that I thought we had skipped a piece and went down again, but no. There are as in Pompeii remains of the city and you look great the kitchens of the shops and all the other rooms. The art school... Nothing claustrophobic.
