An enjoyable and fascinating glimpse of ancient Roman Naples, this is certainly worth doing, and perhaps not as intimidating as the nearby tour of the ancient cistern complex. My guide's Italian accent was pretty heavy, and some struggled with this, but for €10 this was...More

We enjoyed a great 2 hours here. The market was overwhelmed by floods in the 5th century AD. And lay untouched, mud covered for over a 1,000 years. It was subsequently built upon by a monastery. Now uncovered and lovingly restored. Access down 15 feet...More

Guide tour was quite short, and not so interesting comparing with other similar places. I would recommend to go to catacombs instead of this place.

I decided at the last minute to check out the underground market. I did not go with a guided tour and I think that may have made a difference. I read the pamphlet, walked around, and was done in about 30 mins. It was interesting...More
