Another lovely set of buildings and cool underground

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

Interesting tour of the old roman market, buried by a mudslide centuries ago. Knowledgable and informative guide. Museum is less interesting than the former friars' refectory and the underground market.

This was fascinating! Our small group had a wonderful student called Laura as our tour guide who was so knowledgable. Naples has so much history. There were Greek foundations, a Roman market built on top and a Monastery built atop that. The ruins were remarkably well preserved. It made for a great experience.

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
