Naples Underground Tours

In the underground of Naples lies a labyrinth of tunnels, tanks and cavities that form a real city which is the negative of the city on surface. The underground city spreads below the entire old town, its myths and legends are still alive in the imagination of all the neapolitans. The underground of Naples fascinates and impresses for the grandeur of the cavities, and therefore for the spaces, and for the maze of tunnels that cross each other for several miles below the streets and the buildings.
Come with us into the insides of the city to discover the history and mysteries with the most fascinating tour of Naples, family and kid friendly.

  • "Great Tour of Underground Naples"

    So well worth the visit to this fascinating part of Naples. 40m below street level exploring the historic centre's labyrinth of aqueducts, passages and cisterns.

  • "Underground history"

    This is a great place to go to learn about the history of Naples. It is also a good workout with a lot of waling and stairs into the underground chambers. The guide was really helpful and had lots of information on the history of the place and of ancient Naples. Tours are conducted in at least 3 languages and the entry fee is not too steep. Highly recommended.
