My daughter and I happened on this place quite by chance and it was a wonderful surprise. The ticket of 9 Euros includes admission to the underground excavation, the church and the museum and all three are really worth it. We were particularly charmed by the fact that there were no crowds at all and we were often alone in... More

Wanted to go here on my Naples trip, having been to Pompeii before, the "ruins" here are set under a church and have been excavated only fairly recently, I had the site largely to myself the whole time i was here, and it lets the imagination run wild on what trade went on here, it's simply fascinating, not a small...

The site shows exactions of a town, with a bakery, laundry, and many other fascinating things. The only thing missing is that not all the exhibits had translations. An app is suggested which one can download there, but we found the sound wasn't working with the app.

A fascinating underground view of a Roman market and well worth a visit. The laundry was an interesting insight into life at that time.

The Roman Market/Macellum which was in use until 5th century AD includes - remnants of a Roman street, bakery, laundry, workshop for dyeing textiles, treasury and criptoportico with connected spaces which were used...

It's worth the 9 Euros to tour the underground Roman ruins. The ticket also gets you into two rooms with beautiful frescoes. After your tour, if you walk inside the church, there are two places where a glass floor enables you to see mosaic floors from the a Roman era.

Our hotel recommended we stop here to view the excavations underneath this large church and we were glad we did. The underground market dates back to Roman times but apparently this was built on a previous Greek settlement. We paid the entrance fee which allowed us to see not just the market ruins but other attractions on site although on... More

The eruption of Vesuvius that brought an end to the Roman period in and around Naples also served to preserve much of what was left behind. The tour of the excavation under this church is an excellent example. Very memorable and well worth the admission fee.
