Owner description: 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.

I like the fact that the money goes towards restoring the catacombs. With that said, it needs alot of work. The catacombs are 95% just holes. It would be great if they had concept art of what one would look like. Have a section restored to what the hospital looked in the catacombs.

Tour takes an hour and a half and can be done in 40. No wondering off allowed. I mean the catcombes have been abandoned since 900ad, so not a whole lot to see. They take credit card for payment.

We loved the visit and the, be in the early Christian "cemitery" and church was very informative, but even better than that was the strong social organization that is developing the tourism and the neighborhood. We loved

We initially didn´t plan to go there, but we were pleasantly surprised. We learnt a lot about burial habits, saw different types of old graves and in addition the ticket (6E) included the entrance to the San Gaudioso Catamcombs in the Basilica di Santa Maria della Sanità, which were even better. We highly recommend this.

Really amazing and very spooky place with a really informative guide makes this a really interesting place to visit. A little bit out from town but definitely worth it.
