I recommend trying this experience! It immerses you in the Sanità district and in the history of ancient Naples, with truly prepared, kind and helpful guides, who transmit passion! It is not specified, but by purchasing the ticket, a ticket is also given for free to visit the Catacombs of San Gennaro, always with a guide (and vice versa). Being two very different catacombs, I recommend seeing them both! These guys really deserve all the support they can get! Well done !!

Absolutely great experience. The ticket counter where you can redeem the voucher was easy to find, as it is located exactly in the church. The tour itself was offered by a friendly guide who explained many exciting details with wit and expertise. With the ticket received on site, there was also the opportunity to view the other catacombs in the city for free - 9 € is an excellent price-performance ratio.

Wonderful organization and easy purchase on Getyourguide. The catacombs, both of Sna Gaudioso and of San Gennaro, are treasures not to be missed, both in terms of culture and curiosity. The guides of the "la paranza" cooperative are young and highly trained. Five stars because you can't give six.

Great experience and great tour!

It was very interesting and the guides are great! I loved the idea that it´s an social institution from the neighborhood of Sanita and you support the local people by visiting the catacombes! Would highly recommend the tour!
