A nice and interesting experience in the underground’s of Naples. The guided tour is recommended to learn more about the catacombs. The site is administered by an association that is investing in young people and trying to give a new life to this area of Naples, this is a plus.

Amazing guide, clearly full of knowledge and will to talk about the subject. If you’re not a native English speaker, sometimes it might be a bit fast paced for understanding. I recommend it! Me and my father left amazed!

Naples was very crowded due to the Christmas holiday. Davide did a wonderful job of navigating the crowds and showing us an exceptional side of the City. He was engaging, and lively and easy to understand.

We would do this again! This was time and money well spent.
