With a little skepticism we approached this 3 hour tour. I must confess that we have been positively impressed by the organization. A guide, Mr. Luca who with his culture and his Neapolitan humor of Health, has been able to involve and impress me and my wife. Apparently ghostly places have been made spectacular by the help of artfully positioned lights. Catacombs that are not claustrophobic at all; all, I repeat, seasoned by the guide who with his explanations managed to reveal the places well and make us discover arcana that we would never have imagined. Tour tormented only by the rain, TOUR THAT I RECOMMEND TO ALL. But I would like to make a note: this tour is not suitable for mothers with newborn babies who are breastfeeding, these are cemeteries and the air is not the best to start facing life. Best wishes to all, Cosimo WHOLESALE.

It was a beautiful experience! We had a splendid guide who described all the beauties of the Sanità district with care and passion. The work these guys do is truly commendable and must definitely be supported. If you have kids, the tour is a little demanding! In fact, we walk a lot. However recommended for older children and teenagers. In summary I would say .... do it !!! Really deserves !!!

Il tour è iniziato presso le catacombe di San Gennaro per poi proseguire per il quartiere Sanità con tutte le sue bellezze a volte nascoste. La nostra guida, Fabrizio, è stata a dir poco eccezionale. Oltre alla sua professionalità e alla chiarezza delle informazioni che ci ha trasmesso, ci hanno colpito la passione,l'orgoglio, la dedizione e il desiderio di riscatto di una vita dedicata ad un progetto straordinario. Senza mai scadere nel melodrammatico, non sono mancati momenti di sincera commozione. Un senso di forte concretezza accompagnerà il ricordo di questa nostra visita, che consigliamo di non perdere a chiunque visiti Napoli.
