    The cemetery is actually a massive man made cave containing the remnants of more than 15,000 napolitains who have died throughout the centuries. It is located in a very pittoresque area of Napoli, vibrant and very poor, below San Gennaro Catacombs. Many of the cranes exposed used actually to have been “adopted” by Napolitan families for protection, they are now back after the church denounced this pagan rite. I saw families with very young children however I would not advise unless children are briefed before the experience as it can be quite troubling to witness the mass of bones. Fontanelle is unique in the world and is for me almost worth the trip to Napoli. It is an historic but almost a very spiritual visit whatever your faith (or non faith) is.

    I read on cnn.com about the Ancient Greek tombs recently uncovered in Naples and knew we had to visit during our Italy trip - indeed, we planned to stop in Naples precisely because of this amazing find. I contacted Carlo Leggieri, whose 20-year passion project has been to bring this site back to life, after centuries of neglect. Although Carlo doesn't speak (much) English, he put me in touch with his partner, Alex, and from there the process was absolutely seamless. Alex and I planned the date and time for our tour, he picked us up at our hotel and brought us to the site (which you would never know is there), and from there, we had a two-hour odyssey back a few thousand years. Carlo is enthusiastic and encyclopedic in his knowledge. Alex is a delightful co-guide and translator, and together, the two made this experience very special. For anyone who is interested in the ancient world, this tour is a treat. It is a great accompaniment to the newly-opened Ipogeo dei Cristallini. To get in touch with Carlo for a tour, write to carlo.celanapoli@gmail.com

    There is loads to see in Naples and this little chapel by the side of the main walkway is worth a look. It wasn't on my main list of things to see but was worth a look. Part of the religious make up of this fabulous city.
