Underground Naples

The undergrounds

The visit to Underground Naples is the most unusual opportunity to literally enter the discovery of the bowels of Naples (40 meters deep). A spectacular journey that runs through the subsoil of the city, the Underground Naples so called by the homonymous book by William Melisurgo (1889). A very long history that starting from the 3rd century BC with theopening of the first quarries operated by the Greeks to extract the tufa blocks, it reaches the present day.


During the tour we will visit the Greek tuff quarries, the aqueduct and the galleries from the Roman era, the Bourbon era tunnel, the air-raid shelters and the war museum dating back to the Second World War, the water museum and the Neapolitan nativity scene museum.
