Rocca Paolina can be accessed from Piazza Italia and Via Masi across from Hotel Brufani Palace. I thought I was going to an underground shopping center, but it's far more interesting-cavernous rooms from the past with a very eerie feeling. By taking the first free escalator down you can walk through the caves and out to Porta Mariza-this is the most interesting area. You can return to the second escalator and continue down a series of escalators, but it's not near as interesting as at the bottom of the first escalator from Piazza Italia. It's free and there are several security cameras and occasional "police" to watch over activities, so it seems very safe. It was very unexpected and I really enjoyed walking through this area. Of course this isn't a new construction project, so expect uneven bricks in the street and watch your step. Recommended if you are strolling the nearby Piazza Italia for a 20 minute visit.
