What an amazing experience.

This is a must-see site where you can wander through underground Greek and Roman streets wonderfully preserved under the streets of bustling Naples. Pure magic.

The visit was a great trip in the past Old Naples. We used our imagination to imagine how it was here in the beginning. The ruins are very well preserved.

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

This is a great opportunity to see the ancient ruins laying beneath the city streets. The original settlement of 470BC is visible as well as subsequent layers. It is cool and quiet and a real change from the heat and bustle of Naples. We wandered around exploring without a guide which was fine. Lots of stairs to climb down and... 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.
