Your experience

Highlights

  • Discover a hidden world of Italian history, buried under the streets of Naples
  • See the final resting place of Saint Januarius - the patron saint of Naples - and countless other religious figures and nobles
  • Marvel at a beautifully designed tribute to the dead with elaborate stone carvings and breathtakingly restored frescoes

Description

Immerse yourself in Italian history and discover the final resting place of the most venerated 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 through the ages. Travel through a thousand years of history, hidden just a few meters below the daily life of Naples!

Italian society has always shown great respect for their dead, and you can experience this honour first-hand when you descend into these sacred tombs. The oldest sections date back to the second century AD and were originally built by a local noble family before being enlarged to accommodate the growing Christian community.

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