Around the origin of our Catacombs much has been discussed, they were simpleburial and never were quarries or underground ways; the first note of the monumentis repeated since the death of St. Agrippino our bishop in the II century, when hisbody was buried there in a noble tomb. Many miracles the saint operated by thetomb, so it became a place of reverence and neapolitan wished to be buried in thatplace.

Tours (english speaking) are on the hour, every hour. we turned up at 10.10 and just missed the 10.00am.... we waited in the cafe area for the 11.00am tour and our guide took us on an underground tour (apologies i can't remember his name) he was excellent and the tour was very informative, especially on the history of the catacombs...

The ticket price includes tours of both catacombs which are a short distance apart. Seeing both is a must because they are different. The passageways are wider than the catacombs in Rome. We did the tours on different days -- your ticket is good for up to a year to go to the second catacomb. The tour guides at both... More

This catacomb is more than some old bones. It's worth the bus ride and the wait for the tour in English by a guide who really cares about the place. Even as a non-Catholic, I was impressed by the site and please that I visited.

We went to both catacombs - San Genaro and San Giovanni! Can't remember which one is which but both were fascinating and the tour guides were excellent. They are clearly hardworking people trying to improve the local area! An excellent day out. Antonio and Miriam were our guides - great work.

huge catacombs, and very well set out, with a lot of different levels and things to see. The guide wasn't anywhere near as inspiring as the other nearby catacombs (in a church, sorry can't remember the name), but the information was good.

Excellent tour of the best catacombs in Naples. English spoken by pleasant and knowledgable guide. Tours leave on the hour so time your arrival. Ten euros in taxi from city centre (and ten back) - not near Metro. Take a warm top!

Unusual place. A numerous number of graves in the stone walls and floor of catacombs with old frescoes, some of them well preserved. Old Christian churches gives you the feeling of the spirit of the early Christian Era. The perfect guides that really love their job.

Not as well know as other Catacombs these San Gennaro ones are for sure very Beautiful and full of mistery, not to mention that these were the catacombs where the most important Saint of the City of Naples was Buried.
