Guided tour of the Ipogeo dei Cristallini
Professional multilingual guide (English, Italian or French)
  • Seek scarce artifacts of Hellenic art and architecture, rare remnants of ancient Greek society in Naples
  • Understand the Greek influence of Neopolitan culture and history with an expertly guided tour
  • Admire the sculptures, frescoes, and funerary decor, buried under cement and cobblestones for centuries

Descend into the depths of Naples to uncover a rare ancient Greek necropolis with tickets for an exclusive guided tour of the Ipogeo dei Cristallini.

After several mudslides buried this ancient crypt centuries ago, archeologists unearthed Ipogeo dei Cristallini in 1889. Since then, visitors can take a peek into what life was like in Neapolis, where modern Naples stands today.

See where the ancient Greeks buried the bodies of critical societal figures, untouched for thousands of years. Admire the expertise of the sculptures, even carving delicate pillows for the dead straight out of the hard bedrock.

As if seeing the final resting place for the Greek elite weren't enough, there are dozens of perfectly-preserved sculptures, intricately-decorated columns, and extremely rare frescoes throughout the site. Some sculptures even have remnants of red pigment on their lips!

Nearly 400 years before the Pompeii tragedy at Mt. Vesuvius, the crypts underneath Naples provide a different story of a society frozen in time, which can be further explored with your tickets to the Ipogeo dei Cristallini.
