My wife and I took a taxi from out hotel to the site however it's easy enough to find by walking from the metro, about 20 mins using google maps. It is free of charge to enter and look round. Will probably take 20 mins...More

Worth the walk to find this. Semi underground and lined with skulls and bones from all over Naples. Until awhile back the skulls were "adopted" by people who cared for them. We visited as we were in the area after visiting the catacombs in the...More

An incredible experience! In the heart of the characteristc Quartiere Sanità you can find this old cemetery collecting skulls and bones of the so called 'lost souls', dead without a burial. It is a stunning site, full of mystery and with religious atmosphere which gives...More
