Let's go to see the underground city!!

Naples is a hyper cheerful town. However, do you know that there is an underground city underneath that chaos??

It's the old underground city "Napoli Sotterranea". The ancient Greeks built temples thousands of years ago. Then here was used as the underground canals till 19th century, and became bomb shelters during the World Wars. Many traces of each period are left everywhere. Today, visiting here, you can have a great experience of a wonderful time travel over 2,000 years.
