Antonio probably gave us the best tour we had all trip - beautiful storyteller of an incredible history (which I'm normally quite bored by). I won't spoil the stories, but they're shockingly cool. This co-op is working really hard at their preservation and renovation projects,...More

We were given a leaflet whilst we waited in the cafe area which helped us as we went around. The free Wifi was helpful so we could read about the area before going down. Luck seems to determine the quality of your guide here. Ours...More

Amazing atmosphere, rich of interesting and relevant history. A hidden treasure that should absolutely receive more acclaim and attention. The young guides were amazing, truly doing justice to the entire city, not just the site.

Have to visit this place just to remember what life is all about. Totally amazing, mind blowing but quite scary. A reminder of how insignificant we really are.

surely go on this trip while in Naples, the underground gets another meaning when looking at all the amazing tunnels beneath the city with an ages-old history. Takes about 75 minutes, but is great and interesting

Despite taking a long time to find (do not trust Google maps or iMaps when trying to locate) we really enjoyed a visit to the catacombs. The guide spoke good English and was able to answer any questions of the group.

Worth the effort to get here. We went on a guided tour in English. The guide makes all the difference and was excellent. The catacombs are quite extensive and are on two levels, both of which are included in the tour. There is a refreshment...More

Our visit to the Catacombe di San Gennaro was excellent. It is a little way out of the centre but was easily reached by taking a bus from near to the Dante Metro station. The only way to enter the Catacombs is on a guided...More

Catacombs are probably great place to visit and enjoy the history, but guided tour is terrible! Catacombs are seven kilometers lenght but guide showing you about 100 meters, not very good att all

After seeing some awsome catacombes, this was a little disappointment. It was small and not so exciting, no narrow tunnels. The guide sat us down and gave us a lengthy speech of the restoration project, which was not that interesting, especially when her english was...More

This was a tour that was 40 minutes in length and that was 20 minutes too long. The catacombs are a long way out and really not worth the effort. There is no ossuary- literally just underground rooms.
