Scendi nel cuore di Napoli, fra le antiche sepolture dei primi cristiani e le misteriose tombe seicentesche dei nobili napoletani. L’estro, la fantasia e le bizzarrie dell’arte, si fondono con le idee “purificatrici” della Controriforma e con la tipica superstizione napoletana.

With one ticket, you can get into both the Catacombs of San Gennaro and these, the Gaudosio, set inside a magnificent church. Really excellent tour, and some awesome skull fragments from the wealthy Neapolitans who paid to be buried there!

One cannot imagine the legacy stored at this catacombe, and the history it counts by itself. To worship the dead was a must during early christianity.

It isn't every day you visit an empty grave, nor would you expect to find this incredible series of graves carved outside the ancient foundations of Naples. The experience is unique, and incredible. Highly recommended. The passionate volunteers are absolutely dedicated to the story that...More
