Owner description: 1) Roman Theatrevisit Of A Part Of Roman Theatre In Naples, Overlaid In The Xv Century , By The Modern Buildings Wich Are Now In Via Anticaglia, Vico Cinquesanti E Via San Paolo. You Are Going To Enter A Traditional Neapolitan House, Commonly Called "basso" (low), Because It Is At The Street Level, Already Part Of The Roman Theatre. By Setting Back A Bed And Opening A Trapdoor You Will Be Able To See The Places Where The Emperor Nero Had His Own Private Backstage, Every Time He Came To Perform In Naples. The Visit Lasts 20 Minutes.2) Summa Cavea (upper Part Of The Roman Theatre)the Tour Has Been Recently Made Bigger And Complete With A New Discovery. Thus, In An Ancient Neapolitan Carpentry Workshop A New Section Of The Theatre Came Out And Right Here A Permanent Nativity Cribs Exhibition Was Installed With More Than Thirty Ancient "scarabattoli" (wooden Shrines Used For The Nativity Scenes To Be Shown) Which Show Nativity Scens And Popular Daily Life. Opus Reticulatum And Latericium Construction All Around The Theatre Walls. In The Latest Section Brought To Life Of The Roman Theatre Another Discovery Was Made, Thus, In The Floor Small Channels Of The Aqueduct Were Used For The Water To Rush Through, Though They Had Been Obstructed For A Very Long Tme By The Sawdust From The Carpentry Workshop. Channels Used As Sewers During The Bourbon Period., Released With Bluish Tiles, These Very Channels Are Now Protected With Grates To Be Seen By Visitors.

Shows how the former Roman buildings have been absorbed into modern day Napoli. It is a free addition to the Napoli Sotterranea tour & took you round showing you how it was now parts of people's houses. & took us underground to see some accessible bits. Well worth a visit, quite a surprise but I guess in Naploi there is always something underneath you.

This was at the end of the Underground Naples tour, which gives a fascinating history of the water cisterns in Naples from Ancient times to present. It then continues outside where the guide takes you on a tour of a Roman theater where Nero sang. The Nativity scenes on display right beyond it are spectacular.
