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.

  • The catacombs themselves are amazing to see. There are a good number of frescos still in excellent condition. The guide gives an excellent talk and is very knowledgeable. I think the price of entry is great value. The tour took about 45 minutes. A great point is that at the end of the tour you can choose to return to the top of the hill with the guide or you can be let out of the door of the final church into nearly the centre of Naples. The price of admission also allows entry into the other nearby catacombs.

  • Very cool experience. Tours run every hour. Just buy tix when you get there. It will cover the other catacombs too

  • One of the best tourist attractions in Naples. The staff in the visitors centre were welcoming and most spoke very good English. Could buy very reasonably priced food, drink and souvenirs in the visitors centre, as well as the tickets for the tour. Tour was great - a young Italian girl that spoke fluent English showed us around (group of approx. 20) and explained the history of the site. The whole centre was set up by a small group of friends to support young Italians and provide employment in a very poor area of the city - so it's great to know that the profit goes to a good cause.

  • Brilliant ancient place. One of the 2 catacombs. The ticket is the same and it's possible to buy it at any of these 2 locations. It's valid more than a day so you can visit the second catacombs the next day. The visit was very impressive. We got a lot of information from our English speaking guide.

  • Interesting guided tour (by a local volounteer organisation) with interesting insigts on advent of cristianity and related iconography
