Going down 136 steps, low and comfortable, we will reach a depth of about 40 meters below ground, where we will visit few of the tuffaceous cavities excavated in the Greek era (IV centuries BC.), and exploited as cisterns for the water supply of our 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 because each person is given a candle to light their own path. Also the walking surface is smooth and straight, and the visit has a duration of about one hour.
We will also visit the air raid shelters from the Second World War, the War Museum and the Hypogeum Gardens, a new project which the association of Naples underground offers to its visitors as well as multiple educational and scientific activities.

To visit it is to travel to the past, a world 2400 years old.Every historic epic, from the foundation of Neopolis, to the bombs of WWII, has left it’s mark on the walls of the yellow tufa stone, the soul of Naples, and the stone with which the city was built. Our guides will take you on a journey through 2,400 years of history, from the ancient Greeks to modern times, unveiling the “womb” of Naples from an archaeological, historical, anthropological and geological point of view.
