This was one of the most different things we've done, I was slightly apprehensive, as you're warned it a tight squeeze. And it was! I was fine ( slightly scraped on one elbow, but fine) but 2 young men had to go out. It takes you right back through the layers of history under the city. The guide, Roberto, was... More

This was a place that I was not expecting to have so much fun at. It was very entertaining and educational. I do recommend.

Loved this tour. I was a bit scared of going underground as I do get claustrophobic, but it was so fascinating there was no time to think about it and mostly the underground spaces are large and open. It was fascinating to learn about the history of Naples and to think that we were walking through what was originally excavated... More

We did not have the guts to enter these underworlds streets, as the town was scary itself, all streets around Spaccanapoli and the Spanish quarter. It was spooky when we passed by in the evening, see the pic. Visited September 2015

What a fascinating tour. We learned about the ancient water systems that were created by the Greeks and then expanded by the Romans. How each house in Naples had fresh water from the underground wells. During WWII they became bomb shelters and the citizens spent months underground during the allied invasion. A mirror image of the city above, some 40... More

Our guide Luka was very enthusiastic and funny, he revealed a lot of interesting points, infos and stories about the purpose of... More

We went on this tour based on the excellent reviews on TA and we definitely made the right choice. Initially, we were slightly disappointed that we didn't Lucas(who everyone was raving about), but our guide, Fabio, proved to be just as entertaining. He was extremely animated when describing the history of the subterranean to us and you could almost picture... More

Fascinating and entertaining tour of the subterranean passageways and tunnels under Naples that have been in use for centuries. The tour is amusing and exciting and takes you through some really inaccessible areas Graffiti from WW2 is touching and poignant. A must do - as long as you don't suffer with claustrophobia.

Alex was our English speaking guide, he was very kind and his English is excellent. The tour is nice, nothing special in my opinion. The ticket price is too high for what they show people. One advice for the organization: when the group waits everybody down the stairs the room is a bit suffocating, maybe you could find a way... More

They not only show you Napoli Underground but also mix in interesting, sometimes sad, sometimes funny stories and lead you through vast and narrow Networks. The tour is very enjoyable but it took almost 2 hours so don't rush yourself.
