Amazing atmosphere, rich of interesting and relevant history. A hidden treasure that should absolutely receive more acclaim and attention. The young guides were amazing, truly doing justice to the entire city, not just the site.

Have to visit this place just to remember what life is all about. Totally amazing, mind blowing but quite scary. A reminder of how insignificant we really are.

surely go on this trip while in Naples, the underground gets another meaning when looking at all the amazing tunnels beneath the city with an ages-old history. Takes about 75 minutes, but is great and interesting

Despite taking a long time to find (do not trust Google maps or iMaps when trying to locate) we really enjoyed a visit to the catacombs. The guide spoke good English and was able to answer any questions of the group.

Our visit to the Catacombe di San Gennaro was excellent. It is a little way out of the centre but was easily reached by taking a bus from near to the Dante Metro station. The only way to enter the Catacombs is on a guided...More
