Know More about this tour

You will be collected in Naples at a prearranged time and location and transferred to the Naples Underground (if the option with transfer is selected). Traveling back in time, you'll descend flights of stairs in and emerge into the honeycombed underground, with its haunting and mysterious history.

Descending approximately 40 meters below ground, you'll witness a few of the tuffaceous cavities, excavated in the 4th century, and used as cisterns for the water supply of the city for approximately 23 centuries. The environment is spacious and illuminated, except for a short segment where the tour is optional, but full of charm as each person is given a candle to light their own path. The walking surface is smooth and straight. You will visit the air raid shelters from the Second World War too, the War Museum and the Hypogeum Gardens, as well as the Greek-Roman Aqueduct. This part of the tour will last approximately 1-hour.

You'll also visit in the remains of the ancient Roman Theater of Neapolis by entering through a typical Neapolitan house at ground floor. The emperor Nero kept a private dressing room here, for when he performed his shows in Naples. This part of the tour will last approximately 20-minutes.

After the tour of Naples Underground, pizza with soft drink will be served at a typical pizzaria nearby, if this option is selected.

  • Well organised and very interesting. Our guide was excellent. This is a very popular tour and there were lots of other groups going round at the same time as ours. The lighting was atmospheric and gave a real sense of what it would have been like to work and live in the tunnels and caverns. Really enjoyed it.

  • Amazing! Gives another dimension to Naples! Highly recommend this tour. Just beware of 120 steps each way to climb!

  • We all had a great time being shown round by an informative and excellent guide. My only slight disapointment was the end at the remains of the theatre as I had thought there was more of it left but there is only the below under stage rooms and corridors, a model of the old theatre and what remains would have been helpful in the last room of the tour. It is fascinating to see how the People of Naples have adapted and merged there working and living space with the old Theatre and tunnels.
    I highly recommend a visit this was one of my best tours of our trip.

  • It was great to have booked the tour and be escorted to the front of the queue ready for the tour we were scheduled to attend. No waiting around. Cannot fault the fault the service.

  • Great tour, was very interesting and really enjoyed.

  • I didn't know what to expect when I first read about this tour but I can say it was awesome. The adventure of exploring a system first built by the Greeks over 2000 years ago was beyond description. Our tour guide was well informed and nice as well.

  • We were on a cruise and booked this tour on line and not through the ship. We were met at the port by Dinneround and brought to the tour. The driver was on time and we went to the head of the line when we got there. The tour itself lasted about 1-1/2 hours. The history was very interesting. There were some tight spots but it was worth it.

  • Highlight of our trip! The only thing worth seeing in Naples ...

  • Greatly informative and the guide from Napoli Sotterranea is brilliant. However this is not actually a Viator tour. You can simply walk in and buy a ticket on the spot as long as you arrive before they start their tours.

  • The English speaking guide is wonderful. It is a life time experience you must have. I strongly recommend it.
