I completely agree with you.
1 review of Napoli Sotterranea in English
Every guidebook will tell you that Naples is an old town, but as you go through the streets and alleyways you rarele get the feeling of reaching beyond the Middle Ages.
There is, however, on way of catching a glimpse of the ancient Neapolis, for Naples consists not only of the bits you find above ground (houses, churches, streets, scooters), but continues in a massive underground system of caverns and corridors dug up by the ancient Greeks to find the stones to build their New Town. This city beneath the city was later used for cisterns, storage and many other uses, not only by the Greeks, but all those who followed them, well into the twentieth century.
An ideal opportunity to get to the roots of Naples - guided tours normally start every 2 hours (and remember to bring your woolens - after the first hour underground you do begin to feel the chill).
