Naples Underground. Forty meters below the characteristic and lively streets of the Historic Center of Naples, you find a different world, unexplored, isolated by time, but deeply connected with the world above. It’s the heart of Naples, and the place from which the city was born. To visit it is to travel to the past, a world 2400 years old. Every historic epic, from the foundation of Neopolis, to the bombs of WWII, has left it’s mark on the walls of the yellow tuff stone, the soul of Naples, and the stone with which the city was built. This is the most famous and fascinating guided tour underneath the city of Naples. Our guides will take you on a journey through 2,400 years of history, from the ancient Greeks to modern times, unveiling the “womb” of Naples from an archaeological, historical, anthropological and geological point of view.

Pompeii, the city buried by Vesuvius. Taking a tour through the ruins of Pompeii is a unique experience. It is like making a trip back in time: you can breathe the atmosphere of life in ancient times. The public one, and especially the private one … but a nice summer day it was all over! The eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79 buried Pompeii under a blanket of ash and lapilli. Most of the inhabitants, escaped from the houses, was killed on the coast. The few remaining, hoping to save themselves in the basements of their homes, died asphyxiated. The plaster casts of of their bodies in agony, they are the moving testimony of the tragedy. Discover all the details of our visit to Pompeii’s excavations.
