Around the origin of our Catacombs much has been discussed, they were simpleburial and never were quarries or underground ways; the first note of the monumentis repeated since the death of St. Agrippino our bishop in the II century, when hisbody was buried there in a noble tomb. Many miracles the saint operated by thetomb, so it became a place of reverence and neapolitan wished to be buried in thatplace.

Learned a lot about the local area and the catacombs. Impressed by the fact that a group of locals keep the place open, and are still excavating. Was easier to navigate than I thought after taking the many steps to get to the actual entrance....More

This is unexpectedly vast underground network, and really interesting. A great tour guide brought the history to life. Ancient Christian remains. Very atmospheric. Explains why you see so many skulls and skeletons in artworks all over Naples.

I think that a "driveway" access has been recently implemented, maybe you should book in advance if you need of this facility. On the website they talk about a street level access.
