Create an itinerary including Underground Naples
See the other side (literally) of the city with Underground Naples, offering a chance to tour a place some 40 m (130 ft) below the historic center of Naples. This secret, underground city remains a world apart from what you see above ground--a network of tunnels, Greco-Roman aqueducts, and air raid shelters from World War II. The tour takes you on a journey through history and provides a look at the city's turbulent past, from the ancient until the modern times. Most of the passages you'll see during the evocative tour were originally cut by ancient Greeks, who extracted tufa stone from this site. Part of your excursion will take place by candlelight and will lead through some very narrow passages--keep that in mind if you don't like tight, dark spaces. To visit Underground Naples and get the most from your holiday in Naples, create itinerary details personal to you using our Naples trip itinerary planner.

  • Pretty good. The place is surprising and interesting. The narrow, dark tunnels to the water pools are fun. Our guide Michael was keen to explain and answer our questions. He also shared his favorite pizza places with us (I confirm they're good).
  • The tour took about 1h 20min and was quite fascinating. They separated the whole group into two, so it was a bit easier to hear and see what the guide showed us. The first part was super interesting and we had a great guide, but for the second part we got another guide that showed us the theater who was quite unenthusiastic. Overall a great experience.
