Naples is an ancient city, built on top of dozens of previous versions of itself. When you visit Naples Underground (Napoli Sotterranea) you’ll get to peel back time and dive deep into the history of the city, visiting Roman aqueducts, and the tunnels which were used as air raid shelter during World War II. You’ll also take a tour of the remains of the ‘lost’ theater of Nero. Discover a different side of Naples when you take a tour of Naples Underground!

4 tips for visiting the Naples Underground

Wear comfortable shoes and bring a sweater, even in summer, because it can be very cold underground.

Most of the tunnels the tour uses are very broad, but there’s a short section which is quite narrow. If you’re claustrophobic you can skip it, just let the guides know when you reach that part of the tour.
During the narrow-walled section of the tour, you’ll be asked if you want to use candles to light your way. It adds something to the atmosphere, but if you’d rather avoid open flames then bring a torch or use a phone torch.
Bathrooms are available at the entrance, make sure to use them (or ensure your children do) because there’ll be no chance to stop and go back during the 90-minute tour.
