Full description
With this guided tour you travel back in time to discover the most important catacombs in the south of Italy. Go down to the heart of the Capodimonte hill to admire frescoes and mosaics on the tombs of the first Christians.

The Catacombs of San Gennaro are arranged on two non-overlapping levels, both characterized by extremely wide spaces, different to the famous Roman catacombs. This is thanks to the workability and solidity of the Neapolitan yellow tufa earth. The artistic patrimony kept in the Catacombs goes back to the pagan pre-existence of the 2nd century AD and to the Byzantine paintings of the IX-X century AD. The origin of the Catacombs of San Gennaro dates back to the 2nd century AD. Your ticket will also allow you to enter the Catacombs of San Gaudioso and the Basilica of S. Maria della Sanità.

It was probably a noble family of the time that donated the spaces to the Christian community. The spaciousness and uniform shapes silently welcome the visitor in a timeless place. At the end of the guided tour, eat typical Neapolitan street food. Enjoy the famous pizza a portafoglio in the heart of the city, in a pizzeria in the historic center.
