Tour of Naples and the underground at Christmas: discover the city and the ancient Neapolitan aqueduct
Naples during the Christmas period is filled with colors and lights. The illuminated tree in Piazza del Plebiscito, the streets of the historic center, and the presepi representations of San Gregorio Armeno. The Christmas atmosphere mixes with ancient traditions and local folklore in the city. Even in winter, Naples retains a unique charm, confirming itself as one of the most important European metropolises of art and culture.
The legends of underground Naples
Among the absolute attractions of the city is Naples Underground: a fascinating route that preserves a thousand-year history. The ancient Neapolitan aqueduct is a large network of tunnels and galleries that houses the anti-aircraft shelters of the Second World War. In fact, along a road forty meters deep, one enters a labyrinth of cisterns dating back to more than 2400 years ago. Today there is a network of 80 km of underground tunnels corresponding to different eras.
These are just some surprising examples of the fascinating and wonderful Neapolitan aqueduct. Underground Naples is in fact the scene of mysteries and legends associated with these millenary tunnels that once supplied water to the whole city. During the visit, you will also observe numerous objects dating back to the nineteenth century.
