My advice is to take a guided tour to really enjoy the whole experience that is available and the historical perspective that you get. Very interesting how the Italian Cities are like cakes with history piled on top of each layer.

Absolutely robbed money; I couldn't understand this was not the place I was originally looking for, and the similarity with the name of "Napoli sotterranea" got myself in confusion. There is very little to be seen here, and the local guide is not always available....More
