The Bourbon Tunnel is the most fascinating route under the city of Naples. This underground tunnel was built to be a high society fashion gallery and as an hidden route to make a straight path from the army camp to the Bourbon buildings to be used in case of popular insurrection. The tunnel was in use as a shelter during the World War II bombing on Naples and, after the war, as a car deposit. Discovered and recently opened to public can be visited by tourist with the help of a guide. During the visit our guide, a brilliant well motivated young girl, has spent most of her energies talking of the objects we encountered on our path. First we met several ancient cars, left in the tunnel for various reasons, mostly due to problems with the justice. Then the rooms used by the refugees and, while we were deep inside the tunnel, we saw a small part of the ancient hydraulic system of Naples. The guide narrated us the fascinating legend of "munaciello" i.e. some one, like a monk, able to enter nighttime in the houses of the poor and leave some money taken from the houses of rich. In real life these man were skilled people able to do the maintenance of the old water cisterns, but the legend was a very good excuse for any amount of money lost or found in the houses. There are different kind of visits to the Bourbon Tunnel, the easiest is for everybody and another, more tough, that goes deeper inside and requires some physical aptitude and not to be claustrophobic. In summary a place that, must be visited, while you are in Naples.

A fascinating insight into a hidden part of Naples. Our guide, AnnaLaura was really special and an absolute credit to the attraction. Very detailed and interesting tour, better than any school history lesson!
I have lived in the city for over 10 years and this has to be one of the best experiences yet, in this magical city of surprises!

This is certainly a part of Italian history worth seeing. We spent a month in Italy and enjoyed a lot of 'ancient' history and it was nice seeing something from a different era. The tour was really informative and there are some really cool things to see down there. Plus its lovely and cool if you visit on a summers day

Very cool historical location. The tour guides provided when you purchase your ticket on site are extremely knowledgeable. They have Italian and English speaking. Takes an hour and so worth the 10 euro. Enjoy!

Having lived in Naples for almost two years, we never fail to be amazed at the wonders we find right around the corner or in this case, beneath our feet. This is a an amazing look into history. The volunteers were cheerfully helpful and very knowledgeable. Thank you Sara for the wonderful guided tour!
