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.

This was an enjoyable experience if you value the religious heritage of Naples. A great history lesson in an interesting environment. The tour was a little short, we would have liked to have seen more of the catacombs. We enjoyed the historic paintings.

The catacombes are so interesting, the guides have a very indepth knowledge about the subject and they are all unpaid volunteers. The entrance price includes visits to the other catacombe close by, Catacombe Di San Gaudioso.

I think that a "driveway" access has been recently implemented, maybe you should book in advance if you need of this facility. On the website they talk about a street level access.
