On this guided walking tour, discover the underbelly of Napoli as you traverse the city’s centuries-old tunnel system. Venture below the bustling streets of the modern city to delve into the hidden world of subterranean Naples. Explore a labyrinth of secrets and surprises.
Begin your tour in the heart of Naples, between the Spanish Quarter and Santa Lucia. Meet your guide to get started and descend below the ground to the Greco-Roman aqueduct. As you walk along dimly lit passageways, you’ll learn about the engineering marvels of the ancient Romans.
Next, follow your guide into the crypts of San Lorenzo Maggiore, a stunning basilica dating back to the 4th century. Feel the weight of history on your shoulders as you stand among the tombs of early Christian martyrs. Hear about their legacy while the cool air of the crypt washes over your skin.
Continue on to the catacombs of San Gennaro, a sacred resting place of Naples’ patron saint. These eerie underground chambers, adorned with frescoes and ancient artifacts, offer a fascinating glimpse into early Christian burial practices and beliefs.
After learning about the ancient tunnels, travel forward in time as you reach the Bourbon Tunnel, a haunting reminder of World War II’s impact on the city. Used as a shelter during air raids, this tunnel carries with it the scars of the past and serves as a testament to Napoli’s resilience.
Once you’ve explored the hidden depths of Naples’ extensive tunnel network, follow your guide to the exit to emerge from the tunnels and complete your tour.
