An ancient labyrinth lying underneath Naples.
Beneath the northern part of Naples is a vast network of tunnels and chambers, one of the largest catacombs in Italy. The oldest parts date back to the 2nd-century CE, when it was used as a cemetery for aristocratic Romans.
The catacombs take their name from San Gennaro, a 4th-century catholic saint, whose resting place is here.
As you wander through its three levels, don’t miss the 2nd-century Christian frescoes or 5th-century mosaics.
