Catacombe di San Gennaro is Naples’s most significant catacomb. It is a part of the series of tunnels that run under the city of Naples. It has gained this eminent position of all the catacombs of Southern Italy due to its length, the number of the burial sites and the mosaics used in it. All the mosaics used here were well preserved. This catacomb has tombs of Bishops like Basilica di Sant'Agrippino, the Bishop of Naples of third century. Close to his tomb the tomb of San Gennaro, the great saint of Naples could initially be found.

The remains of this patron saint later were moved to Cubicolo di San Gennaro. Then again his remains were moved back here. The catacomb has two levels and the broad corridors as well as the vestibules convey the mosaic art of fifth century. This burial ground got a pilgrimage importance when the body of holy saint San Gennaro was shifted here. The lovely garden overlooking the Sanita offers a fascinating experience to the travelers. The frescoes and the mosaics used for the decoration of the catacombs have a close connection to the second century. It will take just 40 minutes to complete the tour to this famous catacombe of Naples.

  • Not much to see. Merely 100-150 meters open to public. Guided tour only lasted ca. 30 minutes with guide only telling the tourists half a page of information. Really... You could read more on catacombs on Wikipedia...

  • Pleasant, attentive staff; interesting backstory to this local tour initiative.

  • Fascinating place. You can see big effort of people through centuries.

  • They do not accept credit cards. Spent half an hour to get there, didn't have a cash, returned immediately, wasted over one hour of my valuable time.

  • Very interesting. Very different from the catacombs in Rome. €9 entrance ticket includes a tour in English or Italian which starts on the hour.
