UNDERGROUND NAPLES

CITY UNDERGROUNDS

An unmissable stop in Naples, to discover a unique heritage. An ancient network of tunnels and underground roads, dug by the Greeks when they began to extract the tuff to strengthen the city walls.

In Roman times, the undergrounds were enlarged by creating an aqueduct, but after a frightening wave of cholera it was decided to abandon this system to bring water into the houses.

During the Second World War, the underground Naples was used to house the population during the bombings.

About 4,000 people lived underground in the city during the war years.

Today, thanks to archaeologists and speleologists, many exclusive routes have become accessible!

An extraordinary experience in the underground of the historic center of Naples, Unesco heritage, 40 meters below the city.
