This combined ticket gives you the opportunity to visit the church and then take a tour through a part of underground Naples with a guide. Tours are available in many languages and depart about every fifteen minutes. The tour is well done but sometimes we were too close to another tour with a guide speaking in another language. This made... More

We visited this after getting it mixed up with Naples underground which was recommended to us. This sells tickets and advertises right next to where you get the tickets for the other attraction. This was very expensive for what was in total a less than 25 min tour of the underground section. The museum section was sparse and empty. Feel... More

This underground place is a quick stop; less than an hour but so it is a well preserved snapshot of the long lost past. You walk down the steps and back through time. My wife could see the what life was like walking through the long forgotten past. We also have a great imagination.

In real terms paying 30E for a family of 4 doesn't sound unreasonable for what we got however compared to the great value you get elsewhere in the region, both at Pompeii etc and across the road in the subterranean aquaduct tour this was twice as much. Very little signage, no clear maps where to go, the receptionist was unhelpful,... More

First of all, don't go by the opening times given in any guide books. The church was supposed to be closed in the afternoon, according to the books, but, luckily, wasn't. It has been restored to its Gothic glory. Outside and around the corner past the cloister, you can visit the refectory, a beautiful room. Then down, under the church,... More

A subterranean stroll under the foundations takes you back several hundred years in Napoli's history with interesting things to see underground. Some interesting artifacts also in the museum with good descriptions for the untrained eye.

If you ever wondered how it looked to walk down the Roman streets, you have the opportunity right here. Similar thing exists, and most tourists don't know about it, in Rome, just below the jewish quarter, but unfortunately it is impervious due to the later building on same site. Here, it was recovered and gives wonderful insight of what the... More

I was intrigued by the idea of walking through the Greek and Roman layers of Napoli. But the whole experience was a little disappointing. First of all: the guided tour was only in italian, and we didn't get any written information. So we decided to leave the tour and explore the excavation by ourselves. Although it was cool to see...

Without a guide the underground tour is interesting, but you will not get all the information. Also take the time to visit the huge museum - I´ve started at the 4th floor and walked down - very interesting

I enjoyed going underground in Naples to explore what it might have been like long ago. The 11 euro entry fee is on a par with other entry fees in the area. We wandered around on our own and were glad to find boards with an explanation about each area written in English. Unfortunately this didn't carry through to the... More
