This unusual cemetery is a very interesting place to visit in Naples. You cannot really call it a cemetery at all. It is more of a collection of remains from various events in history. It is located inside a cave which makes the whole experience rather eerie but quite fascinating. Although it is a cemetery, it is still a very intriguing place to visit. It is said that the remains you can see here were washed up in a flood and put here later.
Stacks after stacks of skulls can be seen everywhere making it a surreal experience. A lot of the bodies buried here belong to people of Naples. They were moved here after the flood during a period when the graveyards in the cities of Europe could not hold enough dead any more. Nameless victims of the Plague epidemic have been given a final resting place in this spooky place too. One thing is for certain. People will find this place quite remarkable.

Il Cimitero Delle Fontanelle, Naples Reviews - Write a Review
Impressive! A bit scary and creepy but definitely worth to visit. Prepare yourself, it might be difficult for light hearted people.
Must see in Naples. Unremarkable expierence. Also a fascinating way up to the Cimitero through the very authentic Sanita district (if you walk from the Museo metro station).
Very interesting cemetery. Free entrance and the man at the entrance loves to give a little speech about the place. (Also free, but you can give him a tip.)
Cemetery with bones brought from San Gennaro catacombs. Creepy and uneasy place, but on other hand a must see place.
This experience was impressive. It is a bit scary and weird for us as forgeiners to see the remains of approximately 40,000 people. But the overseers of this special graveyard will make a great effort to give you some background information.
