In the underground of Naples lies a labyrinth of tunnels, tanks and cavities that form a real city which is the negative of the city on surface. The underground city spreads below the entire old town, its myths and legends are still alive in the imagination of all the Neapolitans. We are open every day The visit is composed of 3 different parts:1) greek and roman aqueductby taking 136 low and cozy steps, we will go 40 metres (120 feet) underground to visit some of the tufo caves excavated by the greeks (v sec. b.c.), also used as cisterns as water supply for our city for more than 23 centuries. the caves we are going to see are all very big and lit, but just one narrow yet optional part, which turns out to be the most suggestive section of the tour since it is only be lit by the candle light, moreover the floor is completely even. the visit lasts 1h30. of the overlaid of the roman theatre2) roman theatrevisit of a part of roman theatre in naples, overlaid in the xv century , by the modern buildings wich are now in via anticaglia, vico cinquesanti e via san paolo. you are going to enter a traditional neapolitan house, commonly called "basso" (low), because it is at the street level, already part of the roman theatre. by setting back a bed and opening a trapdoor you will be able to see the places where the emperor nero had his own private backstage, every time he came to perform in naples. the visit lasts 20 minutes.3) summa cavea (upper part of the roman theatre)the tour has been recently made bigger and complete with a new discovery. thus, in an ancient neapolitan carpentry workshop a new section of the theatre came out and right here a permanent nativity cribs exhibition was installed with more than thirty ancient "scarabattoli" (wooden shrines used for the nativity scenes to be shown) which show nativity scens and popular daily life. opus reticulatum and latericium construction all around the theatre walls. in the latest section brought to life of the roman theatre another discovery was made, thus, in the floor small channels of the aqueduct were used for the water to rush through, though they had been obstructed for a very long tme by the sawdust from the carpentry workshop. channels used as sewers during the bourbon period., released with bluish tiles, these very channels are now protected with grates to be seen by visitors.
