Naples heart – the historic centre of Napoli

The heart of Naples is the historic city, which UNESCO declared a Cultural Heritage site. Its narrow vicoli (alleyways) lead to mysterious churches, catacombs and underground caves. Until today, Naples’ old folk culture reveals itself to the visitor among craftspeople, fluttering laundry and shouting fish sellers.

Subterranean Naples

One of the top highlights in Naples! Underneath the city lies up to 40 meters an 80-kilometer-long labyrinth of caves. Since 400 B.C., the caves have been used for may purposes: as secret places of refuge, cult sites, catacombs, and dumps. A trip to Naples’ underworld is a special experience and has in the meantime become an important part of the city tours.

Street of the nativity scene makers: Via S. Gregorio Armeno
