Overview

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.

These catacombs was the best experience in Napoli. Must to visit this place. English guide was speaking very clearly. And with the same ticket you can also visit another catacombs. Ask about it in the ticket office.

These catacombs located north of the center are paleo-Christian burial and worship sites. Carved out of tuff in the slopes of the Capodimonte hill. The site is amazing - you enter on guided tours only (they start on full hours) and the information provided by...More

A bit of history,. Amazing commentary and sights. Alot of steps down, so a bit inaccessible to people with difficulties.

I visited with my teenage daughter who loved it. It's a social project and maintained by people who love their district of Naples. I'm shocked how these amazing catacombs haven't received much more financial support for restoration. They are surely worthy of UNESCO protection. Unique...More
