  • Join a guide and see parts of Naples few get to see, like the ancient theater of Neapolis - where Emperor Nero had a private dressing room
  • See the ancient aqueduct, responsible for providing Naples with water for 23 centuries
  • Visit the Bourbon period drains covered in cool blue tiles - you won't believe the colors

To get even deeper into what makes Italy tick, you'll have to go underground. Explore beneath the streets of Naples, a city over 2,400 years old. Learn the history with a guide, visit an ancient theater, and see the aqueduct that supplied the city with water for 23 centuries!

Imagine having a house with a hatch under the bed for exclusive access to the ancient theater of Neapolis! Don't just imagine it - see it for yourself on this special tour beneath the streets of Naples.

Join your guide and learn the incredible history of old Napoli. See Summa Cavea, sewers from the Bourbon period that were made from riggiole or blue colored tiles. You won't believe how long colors can last down there in the darkness.

Put down the gelato and do something different in Naples.

Interesting as you see the caves first dug by the Greeks, then the Roman’s aquaducts, then how the caves and tunnels were used as WWII bunkers. Not for the claustrophobic

Being in the underground tunnels which were built centuries ago and re-live that part of history was amazing and the tour guide was knowledgeable and engaging

Parking was horrible in Naples! Once we did find parking, the location was also challenging—- make sure you have a working smart phone with a Map. Once we got there, the staff did their best to organize groups in lines outside.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and taught us about the underground caverns. I loved the tour, learned history and felt like I was in the movie, “The Goonies” at the same time. I would recommend this if you’re looking for something different to do in a big City.

A must see. You go quite a ways down into the underground and see ancient aqueducts where water was supplied to the people for centuries. You see the ancient theater of Neapolis and other ancient rooms for early civilizations. It gets cool down there so you might need a light jacket. Lots of steps so if you have difficulty walking or are very claustrophobic it may not be for you. It’s not too bad with tight spaces and when it will be you are given the option to wait it out for others to do, about 10 minutes. It is well worth the money.
