We visited these catacombs on our last morning in Naples. We were there for the very first tour--and no one else! The private tour underground was awesome and the very friendly guide even showed us a new fresco which was being restored and usually couldn't...More

Interesting, to say the least. A little macarbre at times, but the guide was very good, if a little bossy. But worth a visit, and at the price, good value for money.

We took a guided tour that included the San Gaudioso catacombs. The tour was really worthwhile as you got lots of additional information, including how they drained the bodies of the rich and then presented their skeletons in the plaster. Also, the church is in...More
