Top Tips

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

2. 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.

3. 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.
4. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

On your trip through Naples Underground you’ll discover ancient Roman aqueducts and sewer tunnels, cavernous rooms left over from quarrying in the area, evidence of Greco-Roman shops and businesses, and other tunnels which were used during World War II to hold supplies, keep people safe during air raids, and once even hide a stolen German tank.

How long will the tour take?

The tour through Naples Underground takes approximately 90 minutes.

Is Naples Underground suitable for children?

Yes! Apart from being underground and sometimes a bit dark, there’s nothing in the tour that is particularly unsuitable for children. Depending on the child, you might want to skip the section through the narrow candle-lit tunnel or make sure you have a phone or torch on-hand. It isn’t possible to take a stroller into the tunnels, but babies can be brought in a carrier and there are handrails on the stairs for balance.
