    Description

    Immerse yourself in Italian history and discover the final resting place of the most revered saints and nobles of Naples. The catacombs of San Gennaro house the remains of the patron saint of Naples and offer a fascinating insight into Italian life over time. Travel through a thousand years of history, hidden only a few meters under the everyday life of Naples!

    Italian society has always shown great respect for their dead and you can feel this honour for yourself when you descend into these sacred tombs. The oldest sections date from the second century AD and were originally built by a local noble family before they were extended for the growing Christian community.

    Many important personalities of Christianity are buried here, including Saint Agrippinus and Saint Januarius, the patron saint of Naples. The high vaulted ceilings and expertly restored frescoes take you on a breathtaking (and somewhat eerie) adventure into the past!
