Invisible city: a new Naples underground

It is really interesting to explore the others Naples with a tour right under Naples and into the most narrow tunnels imaginable. 

Do not miss this tour, but be sure to wear comfortable shoes with good tread for walking on uneven, and occasionally damp, stone and climbing stairs. Wonderful way to explore Naples underground. Small passageways lead into vast caves used from Ancient Roman times and in WW2, very interesting to know the used of the Catacombs during WW2. 


The neapolitan people had always drawn the stone to build the houses – the tufo – digging deep.

The entrance through the crypt of the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore alla Pietrasanta is extraordinary and evocative.

It is the path of another underground Naples that is waiting to be visited. Well worth a visit. Honestly this has been the highlight of my trip to Naples and I’m so impressed with the value! Can’t recommend it enough! In this context, the path of Pietrasanta has a mystical and magical charm at the same time. Under the Basilica of Pietrasanta, erected above the remains of the Greek temple of Diana, an unexplored and unexplored underground path opens its doors: it is the stone mile

Naples underground and the Greek water road

The place to be . Its a Guided tour about 1 hour and something… Very nice experience you learn a lot about the history of old Napoli.. Our Guide was in english.. Very good.. Absolutely have to see that place

Interesting tour worth doing but A good tour of underground Naples with a bit of history thrown in. The tour lasts about 90 minutes and you have to go with a guide. The tour is very affordable and a wonderful way to spend time learning about the ancient and modern history of Naples. You descend from street level into underground caves and cathedral like caverns that began with the Greeks and continued/evolved in use up until WWII.

Everything above come from below…

You would never imagine it was there! A really unexpected and interesting underground tour. A must do it if you spend a few days in Naples. First, there are many Napoli sotterranea. Many of these caves, was used as a selter from USA bombing during WW2 .

Interesting about 1 hour visit to the underground of the city. From old greeks to roman Empire, an adventurous trip through history. Great visit and good vibes in this lively city. Very interesting- worth the visit Really interesting and a way to escape the from the noise! It is amazing to see the many layers that Naples is built on.

Fascinating to see

The Tunnels are a must to visit when in the city. Not a little hard to find, straight to start of via Tribunali close of piazza Miraglia, on Pietrasanta square, where is the ancient bell tower called Campanile della Pietrasanta. But well worth the visit. The guide we had was very informative. The tour goes from the basilica through the crypt till the tunnel so one word: amazing! A different kind of cave. 

World War II

a perfect retreat  to the bombing of enemies

The Tunnels are a must to visit when in the city. Not a little hard to find, straight to start of via Tribunali close of piazza Miraglia, on Pietrasanta square, where is the ancient bell tower called Campanile della Pietrasanta. Just wow, it is worth seeing this snapshot of Napoli`s history. 100 steps down, there are cisterns from the greek and roman period, the underground was also used as a refuge during the war.

Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore

The Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, located on the border of the ancient defensive walls of the city, has an ancient history that testify the events of the city itself. Built on the remains of the temple of Diana and a Roman domus in 533 by the Bishop Pomponio, and dedicated to the Virgin Mary, it was one of the four major basilicas in the late ancient period. In the mid-1600s the Basilica was demolished due to damages caused by earthquakes and completely rebuilt in 1656 by Cosimo Fanzago. Particularly precious is the floor of the Church attributable to Giuseppe Massa (1764).

Cappella Pontano

Built in 1492 by Giovanni Gioviano Pontano, the chapel, overlooking Piazzetta Pietrasanta and Via dei Tribunali, is completely covered in piperno gray stone. Pontano, a brilliant humanist, had it erected as a funeral monument for his beloved wife Adriana Sassone. Inside, with the elegant Latin inscriptions written by the same, the sons Lucio, Francesco and Lucia Marzia were also deposed, together with his dear friend Pietro Golino. Of rectangular plan, with three external facades and a fourth one adjacent to the Chapel of the SS Savior, it stands out in the square for the elegance and charm of the finest relief details.

Cappella del S.S. Salvatore

Between the Basilica and the Pontano Chapel , stands the Chapel of the SS. Savior, dated by the Ventre to 1150. This church of the Arciconfraternita del Cappuccio was initially an autonomous church. Its interior, remodeled in the eighteenth century, are enriched by a majolica floor, with fine decorations and the altar in polychrome marble. The exterior, with the piperno portal, houses on its right a niche, surmounted by a plaque dedicated to the reconstruction of the dome of Santa Maria Maggiore in 1820.

Campanile della Pietrasanta

In Piazzetta Pietrasanta stands the brick tower of the ancient Basilica, a work of Roman tradition with Byzantine influences. Of square plan, on four levels, made entirely of bricks, it integrates ancient materials in the building. Personalities such as Michelangelo Schipa and Benedetto Croce considered the belfry to be contemporary to the church, but studies of the Venditti moved its construction to the IX – X century.
