Naples Underground

One of the great things about visiting cities as old and constantly inhabited as Naples is that you often get two cities for the price of one. Specifically, there’s a whole other city underneath what is present-day Naples, with underground passages, streets, and markets, some of which date back to ancient Greek times.

The most common way to experience underground Naples is by taking a tour of “Napoli Sotterranea,” or Naples Underground. The narrow passageways and rooms you visit at Napoli Sotterranea are more than 130 feet (40 meters) below street level and some of it dates back 2,400 years. Among the things you’ll find underground are Greek aqueducts, burial chambers, and World War II shelters.
