What a wonderful experience underneath Naples. Underground, you get to see Greek and Roman ruins. It's astounding. It's amazing to see the excavation under the church - one wouldn't think it would be possible.

What a wonderful experience to see the ancient Roman markets and houses. Well worth the cost of admission, (discount with the Napoli Card). It was a marvel to see how they excavated under a church. You are able to explore a city as it was centuries ago. Truly a highlight of the history of Naploli.

This was fascinating but barely comprehensible tour of Roman settlement under the church, as no guide was offered and signage was slight. We had difficulty finding the museum since staff was not much in evidence. We asked a priest passing through and he showed us the elevator in a jewelry shop. We wandered around seeing almost no one. The entrance... More

A must-see if you want to understand the layers of history that make up Naples. From the underground Greek and Roman ruins (quite extensive), to the medieval church (astonishingly, French Gothic and you will find out why), to the Baroque overlay, to the very obvious continuing use today, it is Naples in microcosm. Discounted admission with your Artecard. If you... More

It was rainy in Naples so we were glad to get out of it into these excavations. But the entry price of EUR9 is pretty shocking when the wonderful Herculaneum is only 11 and the huge Pompeii site only 13. This would be well worth it at 4 Euros but not 9, for a visit worth maybe 20 minutes. At... More

We walked through the ancient Greek, Roman and medieval market. Our guide was eager to pass some historical and architectural facts about the place and was making his best to be engaging. Worth the time and money. Highly recommended to take the guided tour.

The admission includes a guided tour of the underground ruins plus entrance to the museum, another building and the church. We felt it was a good value as the tour was interesting and this is the real deal.

I don't really have a lot to say about this one other than I enjoyed poddling about it, looking at the art and visiting the underground. We were lucky as there was a small tour group in front of us but then it looked like 3 came in at the same time behind us so we managed to not get... More

We stumbled across this having avoided the Soterrenea Tour due to long queues. Our guide (Marianna), a Russian language student was well informed and funny. It was definitely an hour well spent, inspiring further research and interest about this part of Italy's rich and varied history. Good value for money too.

This is an authentic tour of an underground Roman marketplace this should not be missed. There is a hokey underground tour nearby that feels like an amusement park. Don't be fooled into going there. This tour is beneath an old Franciscan church that was built on top of a Roman marketplace which had been built over earlier Greek structures. Excavations... More
