Explore the graves reserved for the nobles, dating back to the 17th century, when the catacombs resumed their function as a burial site.

Absolutely great experience. The ticket counter where you can redeem the voucher was easy to find, as it is located exactly in the church. The tour itself was offered by a friendly guide who explained many exciting details with wit and expertise. With the ticket received on site, there was also the opportunity to view the other catacombs in the city for free - 9 € is an excellent price-performance ratio.

A very informative and interesting attraction. A real insight into the history of Neopolitan life. our guide was fantastic. Extremely enjoyable. We also received an entrance ticket for the St Gennaro Catacoombs valid for 12 months which was a nice gesture. Excellent.

Great experience and great tour!

It was very interesting and the guides are great! I loved the idea that it´s an social institution from the neighborhood of Sanita and you support the local people by visiting the catacombes! Would highly recommend the tour!
