Itinerary
Stop At:  
Underground Naples
You will be collected in Naples at a prearranged time and location and transferred to the Naples Underground (if the option with transfer is selected). Travelling back in time, you'll descend flights of stairs in and emerge into the honeycombed underground, with its haunting and mysterious history. Descending approximately 40 meters below ground, you'll witness a few of the tuffaceous cavities, excavated in the 4th century, and used as cisterns for the water supply of the city for approximately 23 centuries. The environment is spacious and illuminated, except for a short segment where the tour is optional, but full of charm as each person is given a candle to light their own path. The walking surface is smooth and straight. You will visit the air raid shelters from the Second World War too, the War Museum and the Hypogeum Gardens, as well as the Greek-Roman Aqueduct. This part of the tour will last approximately 1-hour. You'll also visit in the remains of the ancient Roman Theater of Neapolis by entering through a typical Neapolitan house at ground floor. The emperor Nero kept a private dressing room here, for when he performed his shows in Naples. This part of the tour will last approximately 20-minutes. After the tour of Naples Underground, pizza with soft drink will be served at a typical pizzaria nearby, if this option is selected. Pizzeria is usually closed from 3pm until 7pm, make sure you can fit the schedule or maybe just wait for the opening.
Duration: 80 Minutes

Interesting Experience

The meeting place is a bit difficult to find for visitors, but the trip is interesting. We are all exciting while walking through those narrow long tunnels. The guild was good and gave us enough information to understand the underground world of Napoli. Worth to visit!

Interesting, but just buy ticket at the door. No mention of pizza or anything else. Had to double-check to see we were even on the right tour.

Not properly advertised

There are two Underground Tours in Naples, both starting from the same Piazza. The above picture is used by the other tour as a lead picture. It is not seen on the tour sold by this presentation. Indeed, we were sold a tour including a pizza only to discover the pizza location was not open on Wednesday. To make matters worse, the on-site tour operator sent us across town to another pizza place, which was also closed on Wednesday. Based on the problems, Viator did refund the tour cost. Thank you - but others should be aware of the misrepresentation in the tour itself and the pizza place being closed on Wednesday.

Delightfully fun tour and worth seeing. There are a lot of steps and some tight passages, so be aware that you need to be comfortable climbing all the steps, okay in the dark and able to get through tight spots. The only thing I would change is that our group was right in front a group of school children. The children were loud at times and would push ahead to border our group - making it hard to hear our guide at times or enjoy the setting. I suggest that if school groups are going, there be more space between them and other groups - also maybe they need more chaperones to ensure the students are respectful of others.

Our tour guide Maria was excellent. Well worth going to see the history of the old Naples and to hear the stories, especially the Nuns.

Well organised and very interesting. Our guide was excellent. This is a very popular tour and there were lots of other groups going round at the same time as ours. The lighting was atmospheric and gave a real sense of what it would have been like to work and live in the tunnels and caverns. Really enjoyed it.

We all had a great time being shown...

We all had a great time being shown round by an informative and excellent guide. My only slight disapointment was the end at the remains of the theatre as I had thought there was more of it left but there is only the below under stage rooms and corridors, a model of the old theatre and what remains would have been helpful in the last room of the tour. It is fascinating to see how the People of Naples have adapted and merged there working and living space with the old Theatre and tunnels. I highly recommend a visit this was one of my best tours of our trip.

It was great to have booked the tour and be escorted to the front of the queue ready for the tour we were scheduled to attend. No waiting around. Cannot fault the fault the service.
